Chocolate Espresso Bliss Bars

Hokay so. Imagine you’re at the beach. You’ve got a full 10 days away from any responsibility and it’s only day 2. You’re resting face down on a towel in the sand. Two hot masseurs (or masseuses, whatever floats your boat) are giving you an endless massage. There’s fresh fruit to your side and music to sooth your mind. You hear sounds of kids playing, waves crashing, and carefree birds, yet all the noises merge into a subdued ambience. Those emotions are compiled into an edible bar, and you’ve got this recipe. Bliss is an understatement.
