If I'm having a bad day, it's a great little pick-me-up. Or, if I'm watching my calories and planning a really healthy dinner, I can make myself one or two of these and have a little indulgent treat while I'm cooking without overdoing it. When I have an evening to myself at home, I might add a little baguette, a glass of wine and whatever else I have on hand for a nice dinner of little bites.
I'll admit, part of what makes this snack appealing to me is the fact that I can pick up the two ingredients at a great little gourmet food shop just steps from my apartment. So, it's always an accessible and reliable treat.
