Daring Bakers-Chocolate Marquise- Challenge #5

The May 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Emma of CookCraftGrow and Jenny of Purple House Dirt. They chose to challenge everyone to make a Chocolate Marquise. The inspiration for this recipe comes from a dessert they prepared at a restaurant in Seattle.

Wow! and Wow! again.  This dessert is amazing.  I made this for a birthday party and it blew everyone away.  The presentation and the taste.  It was immediately put on the please make it again list.  I did follow the recipe as provided, but am exciting to try a few variations.  One is with balsamic vinegar, black pepper, and strawberries. The other is using a chili salted caramel as inspiration. The spiced candied almonds were such a hit, that my partner asked for a separate batch just to munch on.  Below is a picture of the finished product.
