Trader Joe's might've just made the ultimate mic drop on holiday foods. The grocery store chain recently released new Chocolate Lava Gnocchi, and shoppers are understandably losing their minds over it. The packaging promises a molten chocolate core in each piece, and we expect a hint of hazelnut based on the ingredients — oh, and a little potato. This is gnocchi, after all.
That said, where does chocolate gnocchi fall on the menu? Would you call it a dessert or a dinner? Traditionally, the doughy Italian potato dumplings are served as a savory dish, but this iteration has all the makings of a sweet treat. Better yet, serve it at brunch, where the best hybrid dishes live.
No matter what time of day you plan on eating Chocolate Lava Gnocchi, the first step is to, well, try some. According to the eager response we've seen so far, it's likely to fly off shelves. Run, don't walk, if you're in the mood to enjoy some ooey-gooey chocolate snacks tonight.
