Chocolate Bars and Cheesecake

I usually buy this chocolate bar in the 20 minute break between our first and second morning class. There is a tabaccheria shop a few steps away from the school and I pop in for a new bar every day. I haven’t always been a big fan of Perugina chocolate (I know, everyone loves Baci candies and so do I) but most of their products are too sweet. This bar is 70% cocao mass with bits of cacao nib in it. It is not too sweet and there is a little crunch with every bite. I usually pass the bar around the class. Our teacher only likes milk chocolate so I’m not winning any points there (her loss). Anyway, Mark already smoozed her all up with a cheesecake (torte di ricotta) made with ricotta and Greek yogurt with a biscotti crumb crust…that he made (and it wasn’t easy in our apartment’s sad kitchen)! Everyone thinks Mark walks on water (buon cuoco - good cook) and I’m a free-loader. Jeez. Hey, I do laundry.
