This isn’t a recipe, it’s just a simple combination of things that basically rocked my world. I realize it may seem weird to eat chocolate for breakfast, but these days anything that gets me out of bed and excited to start the day is absolutely worth it. Esmé is decidedly not a morning person, and could easily sleep until 10 or 11 everyday…aaand sometimes I just follow suit and cuddle the entire morning away. I never regret it, but I’m also not super proud of it.
Anyway, this doesn’t have to be eaten for breakfast! This would make a delicious afternoon snack as well. When you look at the instructions you’ll probably think it’s hardly worthy of a blog post. But trust me, you should try it.
Here’s what you do:
1) Go to Trader Joe’s
2) Buy this Cocoa Almond Spread, and a loaf of their Tuscan Pane bread
3) Go home and make coffee
4) Toast the bread just slightly. Spread liberally with the Cocoa Almond stuff.
5) Dip the toast into your coffee and then…just take a deep breath and relax.
