It’s a fact; regrettable, but a fact, nonetheless. Some people are not aware that the Thanksgiving or holiday table must have at least one taste of chocolate, even if it’s a chocolate bar broken up into pieces and put on a plate. As a matter of fact, put an unopened bag of Valrhona or Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips on a plate, and I’d be delighted. That’s why we snapped to attention when we saw this easy and fun recipe for chocolate roses in Dorie’s new book, Baking Chez Moi. Call the kids, because it involves cornflakes.
In France, a version of these is called “Desert Roses,” and that’s the name Dorie uses in her book. This is so easy, tastes delicious, and the texture is just what it should be. As Dorie says, the idea is to have fun with it. Use the dried fruits you or your loved ones adore.
