FOOD BYTES

“Few things in life are certain. We’re born. We die. And somewhere in between the two, we all get our hearts broken at least once. There’s no escaping it. It’s as inevitable as the rising and the setting of the sun. This is the risk we take for that giddy, glorious feeling of being in love.”

So what does love have to do with food, anyway? Well, as many of you probably already know, fudge can make the world a much nicer place. “I’m not mentioning any names, but... a close friend of mine recently got dumped in a cruel and unusual way after giving some jerk a few of the best years of her life... Although I don’t advocate self-medicating with food, there are some situations where a decadent, sticky, gooey, creamy and chewy dessert is just what the doctor ordered — and a broken heart is one of them. Allow me to introduce you to just such a treat — Break-Up Bars! Break-Up Bars have a tender, buttery shortbread base which is studded with crunchy toffee bits and topped with layers of voluptuous, golden caramel and creamy, deep, dark chocolate. I was first introduced to the first cousins of these bars, called Millionaire’s Shortbread, in Scotland. The only real difference between the two is that I put toffee bits in my Break-Up Bars, and I make them when I’m sad...If you’re feeling blue, why not give my Break-Up Bars a try? I’m not saying they can mend a broken heart, but they’re a damn good distraction!”
