Cubarancia bar

Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Leather Theme Week.  The dark 72% chocolate base in this Cubarancia bar paired very nicely with the "orange aroma" flavor. This bar was yet another member of the Antica Pasticceria Muzzi "a pelle" line from Italy.

And as a tribute to the fine leather goods that hail from Italy, I fashioned a purse out of fruit leather to accompany this bar. I'm sure this bag would be used to carry around chocolates.

Thank you to the Stretch Island Fruit Co. for supplying the fruit "leather" strip for this handbag.
