Black cumin and puffed millet chocolate barks
Wow, we can’t believe this is the last recipe of this 30 days chocolate challenge in the Maritimes! For that ultimate chocolate hack, we’ve invaded Shannon and Bryan’s kitchen at the Broadfork Farm. What a great finish! We couldn’t expect a better place and occasion for our last stop-over as one young lady was celebrating her birthday there. And even if she tried to keep the secret, our spies were watching. Also, on our way to the farm, we discussed quiet a bit what special recipe we could make. We thought of many kind of cakes and wanted something unique in harmony with the place. But no thinking was worth a tour of the magnificient garden. And so we felt in love with the millet Shannon loved to use in flower bouquets and the black cumin seeds with their delicious flowery and spicy taste. We’ve made some puffed millet – we need a first time for everything – to make those chocolate thin barks than made a beautiful edible bouquet.
