Chilli & chocolate are known for being a delicious and very popular combination, and as history has shown was one way the Aztecs and Mayans added flavour to their cacao drinks, in the form of spices, or honey. Infact we would go as far to say that chilli and chocolate go together like strawberries and cream, or wine and cheese!
So our bar required the perfect match between the chocolate and the dried chilli flakes. We tried it with milk chocolate and yes it was nice, but we wanted it to be awesome! Our dark chocolate has a sweetness about it, and actually serves to lull our chocolate tasters into a false sense of security, at which point the heat of the chilli arrives!
Not overpowering, this is a great chilli and chocolate bar to introduce you to the idea of this pairing, yet adds enough heat to be strangely satisfying. Not meaning to be controversial, we do find that the gentlemen do gravitate towards this flavour, and it’s always a great gift idea. So much so we decided it was to be one of the bars in our library collection.
Check out our Chilli chocolate cake recipe, it’s delicious.
A bar to kick start your day. A splash of heat to revive the untameable spirit within.
