Today's chocolate game score: Hot Sun: 1; Chocolate: 0.

A late season hot spell this week turned any chocolate that was situated too close to bright, sunny windows into fondue. I will spare you the tragic picture of this slightly misshapen chocolate bar in its pretty gold foil inside wrapper. Thankfully today's heat did not impact the flavor of this 65% cacao bar, described on the packaging as follows: "Butter Toffee Infused with Fresh Lime Crumbled into Fine Dark Chocolate." The subtle lime taste was indeed very fresh and natural tasting, and stood up as a nice accent flavor to the toffee and dark chocolate.

One addition that you may notice in the background: a glass of homemade iced ginger tea, sweetened with agave syrup. Today was Day #1 of Chocolate and Lime + Ginger Theme Week. Lime and Ginger each deserve their own theme week, but this week I'll be combining the two.
