Stout is the new bacon: it’s turning up in everything from short ribs to sweets. The new chocolate stout crackle cookies at Terra Breads (various locations) are a case in point. They’re made with R & B Brewing Company’s Dark Star Oatmeal Stout, which gives them a touch of bitter that offsets the Belgian-chocolate sweet. With a slightly crispy exterior, these fudgy babies melt in your mouth on contact. They’re $2.25 each; pack up a box and pair it with beer, and you’ve got a great gift.
