Heavenly Dessert

Posted in food, lifestyle with tags , , , , , , on December 3, 2007 by rebelhunt

Just what is it with sweets these days? or is it just me? Once again I was treated to a delectable new taste treat last night. Well, it started when I accompanied a friend of mine after work, she went to buy a few stuff to sell here in the office; and when we came back she asked me if I wanted to eat. So, with nothing better to do anyway we went ahead and made our way to The Old Spaghetti House located just outside our office.

She ordered some pasta, I wanted to go with my regular order but since I was looking for something new, I ordered something different. It wasn’t what I ordered that was the highlight that night, rather it was what she ordered after our meal. It was chocolate truffle pie, it was the first time that I tasted it; but I immediately developed a taste for it. It was, so to speak “really good”.

The crust that was I guess made of a mixture of crushed grahams, some oatmeal, and some other ingredients that I couldn’t identify at that time. The luscious chewing chocolate center was what I loved the best simply because they didn’t make it too sweet, it was just perfect. And to top it all off, a creamy topping with splashes of caramel made the dessert complete.

At first glance, I thought that it would be your normal everyday cake; but I was completed overwhelmed when I took my first bite. Suffice to say, almost anyone; even people who don’t usually eat sweets ( save for diabetics.. ) is going to enjoy this little piece of heaven. Right now, I’m busy researching about it because I want to see if I could replicate or at least make a very good one myself.

Ah, yet another new discovery for me, and I’m sure this is not the last time I would be eating chocolate truffle pie. If you want to taste it for yourself, head down to the nearest Old Spaghetti House and order one, and you’ll get an idea of everything that I’ve just said in this post.
