National Chocolate Day is October 28th and what better way to celebrate then with these delicious San Diego desserts!
Enjoy a fireside favorite by the beach at Backyard Kitchen + Tap in Pacific Beach. Their S’mores Pie is a dark chocolate mousse pie on a cracker crush, topped with fluffy marshmallows that are lightly toasted and garnished with fresh mint. A dessert that is sure to warm your palate.
Do you like Crème Brule? Well, Common Theory has transformed the classic recipe into something chocolatey. Their Chocolate Crème Brule is made using bittersweet chocolate along with the tradition ingredients whisked to perfection, caramelized with sugar on top and paired with fresh fruit. To enhance the chocolate taste, a glass of Modern Times Black House Stout will do the trick. The oatmeal and coffee aromas enhance the chocolate while providing your palate with a mouthful of creamy flavor.
Looking to enjoy a chocolatey treat anytime of the day? We won’t tell if you want dessert for breakfast. Brian’s 24 is open 24/7 for you to pop in for a late night or early morning snack. Their Hot Fudge Ice Cream Cake, a rich chocolate fudge cake topped with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry, will sure cure that midnight or early morning chocolate craving.
An all-American type of dessert deserves to be indulged after a true American meal. Head over to Wood Ranch BBQ for their smoked barbeque but be sure to save room for their Warm Chocolate Cake, a flourless Guittard chocolate cake paired with candied pecans, vanilla bean ice cream and whipped cream, all prepared over a chocolate syrup drizzled plate.
For an upscale chocolate experience, Bellamy’s is the place. The Chocolate Bisou, a chocolate mousse made with a semi-sweet chocolate sorbet, is garnished with hazelnut praline for the perfect amount of flavor at the right portion size.
