Planning well ahead and expecting high demand, I’ve already made the first batch of chocolate caramel matzoh crack. (It keeps well, if I keep my paws off it.) This year’s brilliant innovation: I went to the bargain store on Court Street and found a marked-down bag of Lindt chocolate squares in four flavors. (Yeah, I know, bargain chocolate, but they’re fine, I promise.) I used the Intense Orange squares mixed with plain dark chocolate and added a little minced clementine peel and some slivered almonds, and it is delicious. I filled out the tray with regular semisweet chips topped with roasted salted sunflower seeds. Next up, the chili-flavored squares. As to the macaroons to come, I think I will not make red velvet flavor, but I could be wrong.
