Winter Dessert Tasting Platter

It's January 2nd, 2008, and today is the premier of the Winter Dessert Tasting Platter! Consisting of a collection small desserts perfect for two, this quartet of chocolate temptations changes six times a year to reflect seasonal ingredients.

The new collection features:

Frozen Peanut-butter Chocolate Mousse-Iced 60% dark chocolate mousse with a layer of crunchy peanut-butter daquois, topped with peanut-butter brittle.

Sticky Toffee Pudding with Bourbon Caramel Sauce-Moist fig, coffee, and molasses cake served hot, topped with a Bourbon-spiked milk chocolate and burnt-caramel sauce.

Grilled Orange Peel-Date Bars with Cocoa Nib Cream-Vanilla short-bread cookie filled with orange peel, ale, and date compote, grilled to perfection, topped with a cocoa-nib infused whipped cream and cocoa nibs.

Forbidden Rice Pudding- Chinese black and jasmine rice and coconut milk pudding, topped with a cocoa nib-white chocolate sauce and Vietnamese cinnamon.
