Another Day, Another Visit to Il Mercato – Chocolate Caramel Tart

14 Sep

Chocolate Caramel Tart

This is just a quick post – a rave really – of the chocolate caramel tart at Il Mercato.

It is full of the tasty, sweet goodness that is a soft crumb crust filled with  “mousse-like” chocolate, a caramel layer and topped with skor pieces!

Rich, smooth and creamy – I mean look at the caramel layer dripping out!

I enjoyed every bite as my friends looked on, unwilling to join in on my fun – something about being too full, after our, once again, fantastic meal. I always make the extra effort to save room for dessert, too bad they don’t have the same discipline, right?

Check it out yourself: Il Mercato, Bedford

My Rating: 8.5 out of 10

Remember – next time you eat dessert – take a picture of it and send it to me!


My Sweet Weekend Plans – Mini Cake Bites and Pecan Pie Bites

7 Sep

In my last post I asked you what Pinterest recipe I should actually try to make instead of just dreaming it would show up on my door step (which would be weird, but well received!)

You responded and nominated:

Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie

Sugar Cookie Squares

Pecan Pie Balls

Thanks for the suggestions – keep’em coming!

I plan to make all of these at some point, but – I have chosen the Pecan Pie Bites (I know the recipe says ‘balls’ but I prefer the daintiness of ‘bites’) because I think they’d be great to take to a party I am going this weekend!

Also – for a baby shower on Monday – I’m thinking making these

Cute, right?  I’ll get to those if I’m feeling really ambitious!

I’ll make sure to document my baking adventure this weekend and post soon!

In the mean time, what are your dessert plans for the weekend?
