With sweet bites into the spring
The white chocolate means the world to the avocado fruit. The fusion turned into a delicious smooth and soft avocado chocolate cream with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon flavor. As that is not enough, rhubarb stalks and strawberries welcome them in a pond of a refreshing sauce. Together they are a culinary dream team. What a great start into the spring season! The Chef’s Handyman team is delighted.
