They say February is a month of love, but since I think love is for every day of the year, I'm going to narrow the focus down to love of chocolate and books . . . okay, those are all year, too.
Twisty, chocolaty, and cinnamony, chocolate twists, whether made with dough or puff pastry, are a delicious treat for a Valentine's Day get-together, dessert for two, or just because.
It has also been a long, strange winter with extreme ups-and-downs, so some bright color was in order. The lovely napkin was a gift from a reader, and with the yellow-gold trim is a perfect addition.
These chocolate twists have a few steps, but are easy to make and worth the effort. Below, I included a few links to easy alternatives using puff pastry sheets, so you can skip the dough if you're short on time or prefer the puff pastry consistency.
Fix a cup of tea and enjoy a twist while reading a great book.
