spreadable, smooth chocolate pâté-style charcuterie

Our terrine and pâté chocolats are sliceable when served cool, or spreadable when they reach room temperature. Spread on toasts, thinly sliced baguette, water crackers or other biscuits. Place a thick slice on warm toasted bread, or on pancakes, french toast and waffles, for a divine, melty treat!
To serve as individual desserts, float a couple of thick slices of these rich terrines on a pool of berry coulis, a sweetened red wine reduction or créme anglaise, and serve with fresh fruits and freshly whipped cream. See our recipe for a fresh berry-port reduction here
