The Golden Gate Bridge. Alcatraz. Cable cars. Lombard Street. The City by the Bay is pretty darn famous, and it has a dynamic restaurant scene (offering dynamic desserts) to boot. Get inspired with these dessert ideas from San Francisco.
The iconic Ghirardelli Square, located in Fisherman’s Wharf, is home to a plethora of specialty shops and restaurants. Oh yeah, and chocolate. Ghirardelli Chocolate began in San Francisco over 160 years ago and is America’s oldest continuously operating chocolate maker. The company has another claim to fame in that it controls the entire chocolate-making process from the cocoa bean to the finished product, a rarity these days. The company’s proprietary bean blends result in their luscious line of chocolate products. So grab some chocolate, Ghirardelli or otherwise, and make some brownie bites, German chocolate cake bars, mint-chocolate sandwich cookies, mini caramel-chocolate torts, or individual dark chocolate pudding cakes. All can be made in our bakeware . No fuss, no muss. Just decadent chocolate delight.
San Francisco’s Chinatown is a fixture on the list of the city’s top tourist attractions, and fortune cookies are fixtures in Chinatown restaurants. As the oldest Chinatown in North America and the largest outside of Asia, San Francisco’s Chinatown community knows a thing or two about these crisp little cookies with their crisp little prophecies inside. But did you know you can make fortune cookies in our Cupcake Cups? This approach helps keep the cookies’ shape and serves as the perfect place to let them cool. Plus they’re tons of fun to make—add your own personalized messages, such as the following: Great joy is found in great baking.
