Auro's dark chocolate and Mary Grace's cheesecake combine to create this indulgent limited edition dessert

Mary Grace and Auro Chocolate have teamed up to create the café’s newest limited edition dessert, the Dark Chocolate Cheesecake.

The premium quality of both well-loved homegrown brands shine in this indulgent dessert, which is made with only local ingredients, including Auro’s award-winning bean-to-bar, single-origin chocolate.

Mary Grace’s soft, creamy, New York-style cheesecake sits atop a crumbly fudge crust, and is enveloped in a rich, silky, bittersweet ganache made from Auro’s 64% single-origin Davao dark chocolate – a decadent must-try treat for fans of dark chocolate and tangy cheesecake.

The cheesecake is topped with almond chocolate bark, which adds a welcome crunch, and garnished with dollops of fluffy orange whipped cream for a subtle zing of citrus to cut through the richness of the chocolate. The whole dessert is balanced, in terms of sweetness and texture; nothing is too sweet or rich.

The limited edition dessert costs P2,098 for the whole cake and P287 for a slice, and will only be available until June 30.

Mary Grace’s Dark Chocolate Cheesecake is available for pre-orders on their website starting June 8. Starting June 11, it will be available for dine-in, take-out, and pick-up at all Mary Graces stores and kiosks nationwide. Customers can also get it for same-day delivery via GrabFood and Pickaroo. – Rappler.com
