Eat in San Francisco: Dandelion Chocolate

PB&J Sandwich made with peanut butter and raspberry ganache with a light brownie crust

Dulce de Leche Bar made with feuilletine sable, dulce de leche, and chocolate caramel ganache

Hey, guys! It's been awhile. Since my last post, I've visited Dandelion Chocolate on Valencia in the Mission twice. Both times, I was thoroughly satisfied by their delicately prepared dessert bars.

The first bar I tried was the definite standout. It's so good, in fact, that I've been daydreaming about it for weeks. It's the PB&J Sandwich, a gourmet throwback to an elementary school staple. It has three layers of peanut butter ganache, raspberry ganache, and a light brownie crust. In short, it's rich, delicious, and friggin' perfect. Like with every course I've had at Nopa for brunch, you'll need to take a moment or two between chocolate-y bites just to accept the fact that food could be this good. Since it is so decadent, you may want to share with a friend (good luck) or get it to-go and eat it later (more likely).

The second bar was the Dulce de Leche, which is made with feuilletine sable, dulce de leche, chocolate caramel ganache, and salt flakes on top. It is also quite good. It's not as rich as the PB&J, but you still know you're eating something special. Try to get a bit of salt in each bite to accentuate the dynamic flavor.

I still have yet to try the their Papua New Guinea S'more Bar, which is #20 on 7x7's The Big Eat 2014. (I know what I'll be having the next time I'm in the city.) Fortunately for the East Bay bound, their chocolate bars are available at several retailers including the Berkeley Student Food Collective.

I tried the Salted Caramel Latte roll at Cinnaholic recently. Although not as pretty as the original, it satisfied my sweet tooth.
