ChocolateBet: July 7, 2010

Chocolate of the Day:
1 piece
Monique's Chocolates
Hawaii - Dark 55% Waialua
Very Good
Weight: .45 oz. (12.7 g.) (estimate)
Calories: 66 calories (estimate)
Cost: $2.00
Purchased from: Monique's Chocolates, in downtown Palo Alto, CA

This single origin dark truffle (shown at right) from Monique's Chocolates was made from cacao grown on an old Dole pineapple plantation in Hawaii. The taste was rich and smooth; and the texture was fine, but perhaps a bit on the stiff side. (The trick was to warm this truffle slightly - so the ganache (filling) was nice and velvety.)

will have to try the laptop warming technique. SO Silicon Valley!
Maybe that is part of the reason for the texture!
