Once the calendars turned over from February, many sports fans instantly turned their attention to college basketball and its annual March Madness. From the conference tournaments all the way through the Final Four, the attention of the nation's sports fan is attracted to the courts. What this also means is that March is a great snack month, in particular some good dark chocolate bars. Here at Sulpice Chocolat, we want you to enjoy your weekend afternoons with some of these delicious treats. So, why not try to wow your friends by whipping up a batch of some great March Madness inspired recipes.
Salted Chocolate Brownies – Salt is added to the classic fudge brownie to really bring a deep flavor to the traditional dessert. The salt also makes these the perfect snack to transition from savory to sweet treats.
