Chocolate Crostini with Olive Oil and Salt
December 7, 2015
1/2 cups Mandarin Orange Agrumato Olive Oil
2 bars of good dark chocolate
1/2 Tablespoon of a smooth extra virgin olive oil (We use Lucero Chocolate Infused Olive Oil )
Sea salt for finishing
Too simple for words, these crostini can go sweet or savory. The basic version is simply crunchy French bread slices brushed with Mandarin Orange Agrumato Olive Oil and lightly toasted. Melt dark chocolate (such as the fruity Scharffen Berger 62% semisweet) with the additional 1/2 tablespoon of EVOO and drizzle over bread, finish with a sprinkle of flaky sea salt. Voila, you have a snack that goes with cocktails or -- wait for it -- a yummy not-too-sweet afternoon snack in lieu of a cookie.
