Highlight #203: Smore! - Bakery: Star Provisions

Look at it, how could I walk away and not take it home with me. The size of a baby's fist, the marshmallow portion dissolved in the mouth like a puff of cloud. The real surprise lay at the very bottom of this little package, a real graham cracker crust! Sealed and held together by a layer of dark chocolate, the crust was loose like that of a pie crust at room temperature and crunched like a cookie the next day straight out of the fridge. In fact, I liked the fridge treatment for the chocolate cake portion too. My preference for a denser texture was satisfied as the chill compacted the normally fluffier cupcake. Cold or room temperature, the chocolate taste was deep and nuanced indicative of the high quality dark chocolate used in the baking. Lovely stuff.
