What to do with excess almond bark??

A coworker found almond bark on sale and brought it in to work for me because I like to bake. Sweet, yes. But now I have two pounds of almond bark and one pound of chocolate almond bark!

I'm thinking I'll do chocolate covered pretzels with some of it, but after that I'm at a loss. Any delicious ideas?

Thanks all!

Thank you for the tiramisu help!

Thank you all for your recipe links and tips for making tiramisu! I used the Gourmet recipe and it was a huge hit with the guest of honor and the rest of my coworkers. And, it was all I could do not to eat all of the mascarpone/whipped cream mixture before I assembled the tiramisu! (I don't care for coffee, so the soaked ladyfingers weren't an issue.)

Thanks again!

Can you point me to the perfect tiramisu recipe?

Hi all! I'm hosting a surprise baby shower for a colleague and her favorite dessert is tiramisu. I've actually never had it because I don't care for coffee flavor in anything. So, I'm hoping one of you has the perfect tiramisu recipe I can rely on without tasting!

Thank you!

Solo Celebratory Dinner?

Hi all! I'm coming in to NYC to take the bar exam next week and would like to treat myself to a celebratory dinner Wednesday night. I'm reaching out because there are just so many places I'd like to try that I don't know where to start.

Price is no object, but atmosphere is - I want a place that will feel welcoming to a solo 20 something woman and isn't so "special" that I'll feel like I should share the experience. Cuisine? I like everything, but I just can't do raw fish, so no sushi please. I'm staying in the Meatpacking District, but I'm willing to travel for awesome food. Also, it should be a place where I don't have to have reservations, because I'll need a nap after the bar and don't want to feel rushed to get to dinner.

Thank you all!

Must Eats in NYC?

Hi all! I'm hoping to get some recommendations on where to eat during a quick trip to NYC. I have a huge list of thoughts, but want to narrow it down to the best. I'll have a breakfast, two lunches, and one (maybe two) dinners in mid November. Thanks for your help!
