Beer isn’t just for sipping, slurping, chugging and drinking … it’s great for cooking, too! But have you tried it with chocolate? Well, there’s no time like Valentine’s Day to present your sweetie with a fabulous new indulgence!
Of course you’ll need to experiment a bit to find your truly favorite pairings but let me save you a little trial and error by pointing you toward more complex lagers with rich caramel notes. Just keep trying different combinations until you really like the way the tastes blend on your palate.
