Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Leather Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and Cinnamon Theme Week. After today's two entries, we bid adieu to bars clad in leather-like skins and labels from Italian-based Antica Pasticceria Muzzi, and move on to cacao mixed with the aromatic powdered tree bark, otherwise known as cinnamon.

The Madagascar 75% dark bar had the most complex and interesting flavor arc of the "a pelle" line of bars that I tried this week, although it did have a very slight bitter after-taste.

And, while technically I don't count white chocolate as one of my daily chocolates, I used today's Bianco e Cannella (white chocolate and cinnamon) bar to add some spice. I thought I was snacking on a smooth batch of cinnamon cookie dough with plenty of (cocoa) butter. Life is strange without cocoa solids.
