My daily snack

The newly launched "chocolat" shop and cafe called Moroco in Yorkville is like a brooding dark bonbon modelled after the great chocolate cafes of Paris -- with a cherry on top. 
The gleaming display cases boast house-made truffles, pastel-coloured macaroons, jellies and meringues, while the drinking chocolate will blow your head off (in a good way.)
But my favourite treat of all was the Valrhona-covered toffee crunch with bits of toasted almonds. And at just $11 a bag, can you say "chic but cheap hostess gift?" 
I'll bet you can.
