Craft chocolate is all the rage, and we absolutely love all the beautifully wrapped, handmade chocolates that have forged their own well-deserved place in the candy world. Earlier this year, Los Angeles-based chocolatier Compartés — which is famous not only for its amazing chocolate bars but also for being the chocolate of choice for Hollywood-based celebrities such as Cate Blanchett and Mariah Carey — launched a Donuts & Coffee Milk Chocolate Bar. This milk chocolate bar is filled with coffee grounds from the best local coffee shops and crumbled doughnuts from the most popular local doughnut shops, and it comes together to make what is essentially our dream breakfast in a bar. This obviously got our minds racing about how we could incorporate more chocolate into our breakfasts (besides eating a square of this bar with our coffee every day), and so we teamed up with Jonathan Grahm, the founder of Compartés, to create our dream chocolate-centric brunch menu.
Here’s how it goes:
Chocolate Cherry Granola
Chocolate Coconut Zucchini Bread
Double Chocolate Chunk Waffles
Fluffy Chocolate Banana Pancakes
We love combining bananas and chocolate as much as possible, so these fluffy pancakes filled with chocolate and fruit, served with maple syrup and maybe even whipped cream, are a totally indulgent, fabulous brunch dish.
Frozen Grape and Banana Skewers With Chocolate Drizzle
Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie Doughnuts
Mocha Morning Buzz Smoothie
Orange Blossom Chocolate Scones
Spiced Hot Chocolate With Black Pepper Marshmallow Fluff
If you’re hosting brunch during the colder months, make sure you share this delicately spiced hot chocolate with homemade black pepper marshmallow fluff with all your friends: It’s totally amazing and will impress everyone.
