One of my favourite things right now is the Dark Chocolate Caramel from Kakawa in Darlinghurst. Take the paper wrapper, give it a ballerina-like untwist, sink it into your mouth and chew (and chew and chew). Anyone afraid of the bitter bite of dark choc needn't worry, as the caramel sweetens the jolt, making it dangerously easy to transform a pile of sweets into a trail of crinkled paper husks.
If you get to pick some up from Kakawa, make sure to try the Caramelised Raspberry Praline, which is one of the new additions to the cocoa line-up at the chocolatier, and possibly my second-favourite thing right now.
