Orange and cardamom are a particularly nice combination of flavors when mixed with chocolate. I've had this combination once before, and had the same reaction. Thumbs up.
Thank you to Chef Dennis, at Coco Delice, who allowed me to nab an orange cardomom display model (one of only three pieces that were left), and who also explained the inspiration behind the company's peanut butter bonbons (that I tried earlier this week). As young chef(s) he (and his brother) experimented with melting down chocsimiles (of e.g. chocolate easter rabbits and the like) to create their own chocolate and peanut butter items. That early practice paid off.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take a picture of this chocolate before eating it. So, I will refer all interested parties to www.cocodelice.com. (Note: the image to the right came from this website.)
