Bouchon Bakery (report) short

Two items to report on, the chocolate cakes and the caramel corn. The chocolate cakes are small (very) and even though they're gone in only a few bites, they pack quite the chocolate punch. They have a bit of what seems to be dense chocolate ganache in the center, which is almost candy-like. Delicious! A little chewy on top, which I happen to like. I imagine they would be great heated as well, with a little vanilla ice cream.

The caramel corn is interesting. The popcorn is crushed a bit, which changes its consistency from regular caramel corn. The crushed popcorn, along with the peanuts, turns it into almost a caramel corn/peanut brittle hybrid. Starts out sweet and then the salt (perhaps from the peanuts) kicks in on the finish. Good stuff.

These have only whet my appetite to go back and try more.
