Plays: 4404

See how to make a savory chocolate appetizer that’s perfect for special occasions and holidays. This chocolate crostini recipe could also be a dessert, but Chef John goes savory-style, using olive oil and bittersweet chocolate. In this video, you’ll see how to prepare your baguette slices, toasting them under the broiler before giving them an olive oil soak. Then simply place a rectangle of bittersweet dark chocolate on top of each toast, melt the chocolate in the warm oven, and finish it off with some flakey sea salt. That is it! This is so simple and yet so very elegant. The sea salt really pulls out the flavors from the fruity olive oil and bittersweet chocolate. Enjoyed with a glass of red wine, the flavor combinations are beyond amazing. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Savory Chocolate & Sea Salt Crostini.
