I didn't vote because the best thing that goes with chocolate for me is a Tylenol with codeine (no caffeine type called Emtec) and a quiet darkened room as I am allergic to chocolate - it gives me migraines!

But in my opinion a good dark chocolate is best savored on its own.

My in-laws sent us a goodie basket for Christmas. I pigged out on the white chocolate-covered Christmas tree-shaped pretzels - sweet, salty snd crunchy. Yummy. But I also love a gooey chocolate lava cake or tiramisu with Kahlua.

My top 2 are Lindt with sea salt and Lindt with pistachios

I also love Lindt Intense Orange, they must all be dark though. 70% cocoa or more!
