Chocolate Rush: Max Brenner Part 2


They say dark chocolate is good for you - it's full of antioxidants and rich in nutrients like fiber, iron, and zinc. Well if that's true then I just had the most nutritious dessert ever! 

Many of you may remember my original post featuring this marshmallow chocolate pizza from Max Brenner. I'm sure I needn't explain further why I went back for another trip to a restaurant that serves marshmallow pizza!


This time around, we ordered the impossibly delicious (and a little bit adventurous) Classic European Fondue for Two. This dessert came with fresh bananas & strawberries, not to mention sweet chocolate chunk cookies, marshmallows and chocolate sponge cake. They even set up a tiny tabletop bonfire and gave us metal prongs to toast the marshmallows! It was so fun to light each fluffy sugar pillow on fire, blow it out, and dunk it in the chocolate sauces! Now about those sauces...


This plate came with the option of dipping in a choice of two towers of melted chocolate (milk, dark or white). Even these sauce towers were so darling, and each one had a little flame at the bottom to keep their contents melted. We ordered the dark and white chocolate dipping sauces, and a toffee sauce was brought over as well! 


My favorite was the dark chocolate by far. Ever since I started eating dark chocolate, I haven't had much of a taste for milk chocolate. I still like white chocolate too, but it seems to be more rare and not quite as nutritious.

So there you have our super nutritious dessert! I already can't wait to go back and see what other goodies they have to try!

Deep Ellum Boston: Part 2

Deep Ellum Boston

Some of you may remember my first post on Deep Ellum from last summer. I've been back twice since then, and I just had to gush about them again. I mean, just look at that burrito!

To start, we ordered these heavenly Deviled Eggs. I never saw myself as a fan of deviled eggs, but then I realized I haven't tried them in about 10 years so it was time to give them another shot!

These bad boys change daily, and the special on this particular day was ouzo and ginger. It was such a great combination of flavors - a little bitter, a little kick, all against the sturdy, smooth flavor of the egg itself. And the presentation was so pleasing, which adds to the experience that much more. So, now I like deviled eggs! You really do learn something new every day.

I ordered the Deep Ellum Breakfast Burrito. You can just tell looking at it that you're in for a treat!

The breakfast burrito was, if you could believe it, even better than it looks! It comes complete with scrambled eggs, house-made chorizo, salsa verde, Longhorn cheese, crema, and potatos. This is not only the biggest, but the best breakfast burrito I've ever had. It's packed with a flurry of flavors and hearty ingredients - perfect to warm you up in this snowy season!

Another great dish was the Reuben Sandwich, which was served with corned beef, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing, marble rye, slaw and fries. I love the sweet flavor of corned beef, and it's just made perfectly here.

We've never been disappointed by Deep Ellum. It's got this great trendy/hipster atmosphere, and every single time we come to eat here, we are blown away by the dishes we're served. It's one of those places you definitely go out of your way to get to!

This Alexa Necklace by Urban Gem was a stunner, with it's fun shades of teal and amethyst, but probably wasn't something I would pick out for myself. Nonetheless, to rent it for a month and pair it with various outfits was super fun.

How sweet are these Perry Street Gween Crystal Studs? They look like little angels, and I loved how they shimmered and sparkled in the light.

This bracelet was my favorite piece of this month's Rocksbox. This Vista Cuff by Gorjana is so unique and fun. I would have been tempted to buy it for myself if my bank account wasn't still reeling from the holidays! It reminded me of a high-end, golden tribute to Charlie Brown. I also loved how it was flexible and adjustable to different arm sizes, so it fit nice and snug.
