The Tastiest Cigar Ever

Tastiest Cigar Ever

Last Thursday night when it was all snowy my wife and I went out for a little drive to enjoy the scenery and hit up Paciugo’s.  Sadly, they were closed.  So was Fat Straws.  And Chill Bubble Tea.  And Paradise Bakery.  But guess who was open?  My good friend Kenny’s.  We only wanted dessert and he didn’t disappoint.

I present to you the Chocolate Truffle Cigar!  It’s a cigar-shaped chocolate truffle with a thick milk chocolate filling.  Its sitting in a pool of caramel and served with a side of vanilla bean ice cream.  Beautiful presentation, extremely delicious.

UPDATE (03/26/10): Mark Vamos, journalism professor at SMU described this thing like this,

“And the chocolate cigar, from the nearby J. Dorian Chocolatier, is an absolute hoot. It’s a perfect cylinder of chocolate ganache enclosed in a shiny shell of hard chocolate. It sits, looking for all the world like a Macanudo Churchill, in a heavy glass cigar ashtray whose well is filled with caramel sauce, accompanied by addictive vanilla-bean ice cream from Henry’s in Plano. Politically incorrect, perhaps, but a lot of fun.”
