Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Martini

Let me start by saying that my original intention was to share this little gem with you this past Friday.

However, due to technical difficulties; AKA a “wide-spread brute force WordPress attack”. My hosting company locked me out and wasn’t able to log back in and finish my post until just now.



Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Panna Cotta

I think most of us can relate to this panna cotta, in the sense that we all have layers and multiple aspects that make us unique (just like ogres have layers).

Take me for example, from 9-to-6 I am just your average .com software engineer. Once I get behind the wheel, I am transformed into Mario Andretti/Danica Patrick (don’t even try to cut me off). Then, as soon as I get home I’m simply “mom” and “babe”.

But, once I happen to set foot into the kitchen I am immediately transformed into my “other” alter-ego with it’s own set of dimensions. Self-taught pastry chef/mixologist/photographer/blogger A.K.A. Daydreamer Desserts.

Which brings me back to the Panna Cotta I’m sharing with you today. Both dimensions of this panna cotta are very unique, yet the combination of the two make for an incredible experience. The dark chocolate layer provided by the Nestlé® Toll House® Dark Chocolate Morsels can be described as intense, rich and alluring while the raspberry layer can be described as tart, refreshing, and exciting.

Speaking of exciting… that was exactly how I felt when Nestlé® chose ME to participate in their Dark Chocolate Pinspiration contest. The winner will be selected based on the highest number of Re-Pins and Likes. So please, please, please take a sec and Re-Pin and like my creation for me. (I’m a march baby so that can be your gift to me, easy peasy) :)

Voting will be open from March 1 – March 31, 2013.

I’m going to teach you some Spanish today.

I must warn you though, the phrase I’m about to share with you is probably not one that you want to show off to your Spanish speaking colleagues or in-laws. That is, unless they are cool, and don’t frown upon getting sloshed every now and then.
