Toblerone Milk: best with Zucchini

At work, I was in the mood for dessert, so I figured why not kill two birds with one stone, and try a piece of chocolate that I could later review. Looking around the candy case, the Toblerone bar raised its pointy little triangles at me and volunteered. I bought a nice 35 gram bar, not one of those legendary 1 pound monsters.

Not a bad little chocolate bar, even if it is rather sweet. The best way to get a bite of a Toblerone is to put your finger on the top of one triangle, and your thumb on top of another, and squeeze. One triangle will nicely break off, and you have a delicious bite of milk chocolate and honey nougat. The nougat reminds me of a Bit-O-Honey candy bar, but not quite as intense a flavor.

Just eating the Toblerone will leave lots of tiny nougat bits sticking to your teeth, so here are some alternative ways to enjoy your bar.

  • Buy one each of the dark, white and milk versions, break them all to pieces, and nibble slowly, letting the nougat dissolve in your mouth

  • Melt the bar with a couple of drops of cream, and use it for a dipping sauce. The honey flavor gives it a bit of a fudgy flavor, almost like a hot fudge sauce
My favorite things to dip into a Toblerone sauce:

  • Leibniz cookies
  • Graham crackers
  • Apples
  • Zucchini

Yes, zucchini. Don't knock it til you've tried it. The crisp juicy zucchini contrasts nicely with the otherwise overly sweet Tobler.
