inferno Melts Hearts on Valentine’s Day

 

Cupid’s arrow found its target, which was the entire inferno staff. Employees arrived at work Valentine’s Day to receive a meeting request for a “Cupid Break” that afternoon.  A few employees conspired to surprise their colleagues with a sweet spread. Treats included homemade cayenne chocolate bark (with a dried cherries version), frosted sugar cookies, French macaroons and red-hot meringue cookies.

Here’s one of the recipes from our sweet spread:

Cherry Almond Chocolate Bark by Anne Dugan

  • 1lb candy chocolate
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted almonds

“Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stopping to stir about every 30-40 seconds. When melted, add the salt, cherries and almonds. Mix thoroughly and spread as thinly as possible on a cookie sheet covered with waxed paper. Refrigerate until hardened, about 20 minutes. Break the bark into pieces and store in a sealed container or plastic bags in the refrigerator.

Note: The nature of bark is to break unevenly. Don’t try to be too neat or you’ll be disappointed.
