Chocolate and cheese

Chocolate and cheese

A sweet, savory combination

Really? Chocolate and cheese? I’ve heard of rather odd combos like chocolate and bugs (ewww) and chocolate and bacon (interesting?), but never cheese and chocolate. I mean, chocolate is a more sweet flavor while cheese a bit sharp and tangy depending on the brand. I wonder how this idea even came about. Then again chocolate and milk go together awesome – and cheese is kind of just old milk. But really, cheese has sort of moved beyond liquid milk to well, cheese. I just don’t get how this came about.

I bet it came to pass due to fondue. I mean fondue is awesome. And fondue with oil somehow led to fondue with melted cheese to fondue with melted chocolate. I mean people dipped odder things like strawberries and other sweet fruits. I bet one evening someone had a fruit platter from the store by their chocolate all heated up. Said platter was a combo platter with some cheese cubes in it. The people eating were like snacking and one person picked up the cheese onto their fondue spear by accident and bam: cheese covered in chocolate.
 
I mean it’s just so random for this to just come out of the blue yet think about it. The sharp taste of cheese, the cube slightly melted because of the heat of the chocolate fondue. The chocolate with its sweetness balancing out the cheese, giving the whole thing a sweet and savory taste? Mmmm. 
 
It shouldn’t work, yet it does. I’m beginning to think that chocolate is like ranch dressing – it goes good with anything.
