Harder, who trained at Peter Kump’s Cooking School in New York, did her time in some of the best kitchens in the Boston area, including Grill 23, Birch Street Bistro, and the Federalist. Sassy Sauces is her baby now, and we instantly fell in love with her flavors, her quality (all-natural ingredients include Vermont cream and butter, and French and Belgian chocolate), and her adorable packaging.
The Daily Grommet sampler pack includes 9 oz. jars of spicy dark chocolate (wonderfully complex), rum caramel (a hit with sophisticated foodies!), milk chocolate caramel (our testers’ favorite), and bittersweet chocolate (amazing). And as for what you do with them, the possibilities are endless. Sure you can spoon over ice cream or cake, but you could also have a Valentine’s day fondue night, make semi-homemade truffles, or add milk to make hot chocolate. Yummy and versatile. Sweet!
