Sarah Bernhardts are only made once a year in Camden: the week of Valentine's Day. Mulberry Market Bake Shop owners Peter and Fran Rowland make the pastries to the delight of a number of Camden residents. Named after French actress Sarah Bernhardt (1844-1923), these delicious treats consist of an almond macaroon base which are filled with mocha butter cream (or "chocolate ganache" if you want to be fancy), and dipped in marvelous melted chocolate.
