Salted Honey and Chocolate Bark

We love the complex flavors of this bark recipe from Bon Appetit: the earthiness of the cacao nibs and coffee + the sweetness of the cherries and chocolate + the saltiness of the crumbled saltines and sea salt flakes. The flavors may be complex, but making these cookies is easy.

Almond and Orange Florentines

Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s Splendid Table is one of our favorite radio programs. And Yotam Ottolenghi is one of our favorite chefs. So when we found this recipe by Mr. Ottolenghi, on Ms. Kasper’s website, we had to make it. These are flipping easy – very few ingredients and very few steps. If you need a cookie that wows, and you need it now, this is the cookie for you.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Buckeye Candies

We were down at the cabin, listening to the Splendid Table, when this recipe for Buckeyes came on, from the ladies at Liddabit Sweets in Brooklyn. It sounded delicious (chocolate plus peanut butter? Yes please!) so we thought we’d give it a try. These little delights make great gifts.
