Today's "Caracas" milk chocolate (41% cacao) bar (from Chuao Chocolatier based in Carlsbad, CA) was filled with whole roasted almonds, hazelnuts and pistachios. A base of rich, smooth, deep milk chocolate  complemented crunchy bites of nuts.

Previously, I tried the Chuao dark chocolate (60% cacao) version of the  Caracas bar.  I've found 40-60% cacao is a good range for certain nut, bacon, and savory flavored bars.

Today was Day #9 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week; and Day #5 of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week.
