Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate, please! We absolutely love chocolate at Sweet Laurel Bakery.

Here’s a fun alternative to brownies and chocolate cake (our go-to). This Chocolate Ganache Tart will satisfy any and all chocolate cravings. And Mom will appreciate the extra love that went into it, too.
