Toasted S'mores Platter

New Year's Resolution #2:
More exciting dessert platters.

I've been working on a few things around the cafe, and one is finally completed: the Toasted S'mores Platter. Not your typical s'mores combo, these babies feature a cinnamon-sugared chocolate shortbread topped with two of our house-made vanilla bean marshmallows (see how we make those here). And you don't just get one, you get three! Can you believe it???

Seriously though, they are toasted until they are gooey inside and crisp on top. Accompanying the trio is a warm cup of our 72% Cacao and Catalonian Olive Oil Fondue and two little silver ramekins of my favorite Lavender-herbed Grey Sea-salt and Maldon Sea-salt. If you've never had artisan sea-salts with chocolate (and pretty much anything I do with that flavor concept quickly becomes a best-seller), this isn't a bad place to start. Dip, sprinkle, and enjoy!
