Farmers' Market Find: Bouchon au Chocolat (chocolate corks)

The farmers markets here in Minneapolis are absolutely HOPPING this time of year. It isn't because of the piles of local veggies and fruit (HA!) - because the only thing you find this early are plants for your garden. This is a great time to check out the local merchants to see what kind of crafty or tasty treat they are trying to sell.

Today's 'Farmers' Market Find' is the Bouchon au Chocolat sold by Cocoa & Fig. These chocolate corks are so tasty - and a great size for those who don't want to be bothered with the guilt of eating a large brownie. This is basically a fudgy brownie baked in a shot glass. I pestered the guy into telling me why these were so great - it's blamed on a super-fancy cocoa that they use. I found a great imported cocoa from holland that makes a huge difference - so i believed him.

I'll have to look for some good recipes to try this out for our next patio soiree. What have you found at your market lately?

ck them out:

The best thing at our farmer's market this time of year is the donut holes ;) I like the shot glass idea for the brownies.

Hey Scate!

I have been so busy with my kitchen remodel that I haven't been to the farmers market much. I did go to a local farm stand yesterday and got the biggest best sweetest strawberries that I have ever eaten! You should see the fresh farm eggs I have in my fridge. They are big and beautiful in color. Have a great day!

looks delicious! I can't pick a favorite... maybe the pain au chocolat. I can't wait for the fruits and veggies to start coming in the next few weeks!

Can't believe I haven't even been to the market yet this year - we always go to the St Paul farmers' market. I love it when the strawberries and raspberries are available.
