It’s easy to walk straight past Ika Chocolate without realizing what you’re missing. After all, it’s a small shop in an unassuming Tel Aviv neighborhood, on a street where the smell of a hummus factory dominates.

This is the second installment of our new series "The Remix" in which we seek to gently tweak the more challenging dishes in the Jewish culinary cannon. With a little bit of love, we’re convinced we can make even these dishes delicious, even the ones that seem bizarre to the modern palate.

S’mores, in my snobby opinion, are a delicacy. You can’t simply put marshmallows and chocolate over a graham cracker, stick them in the microwave or toaster oven, and call them s’mores.

At a glance, that Askinosie chocolate bar sitting on the shelf at Eli’s Manhattan looks a lot like all the other organic, small-batch foodstuffs so in vogue these days. But the Askinosie product has a far richer backstory than your average pricey, artisanal sweet — starting with the heksher.

Today is Earth Day, the annual celebration and honoring of the environment, when we examine the ways in which mankind could help our planet for future generations. As a kid, Earth Day was also about delicious snacks. My favorite ones, which I still eat occasionally, are cup o' dirt (sometimes known as mud pie without the crust) and ants on a log.
