Chocolate-Covered Cheese with Black Sea Salt
Every time I make these for guests or for a cooking demonstration about "real food" made simply, people rave about them. They're a great, surprising addition to an appetizer table—or even served after dinner paired with a nice cabernet or port. —Dorothy McNett, Pacific Grove, California
