I've been enjoying the fresh cherries that are in season. So I thought I might like this Sweet Cherry Pecan milk chocolate (44% cacao) bar from Wild Ophelia (a collection created by Vosges Haut Chocolat founder, Katrina Markoff). This sweetness of this bar overwhelmed the taste of the small cherry bits embedded in the milk chocolate; although the pecan bits were a little easier to identify.

Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Fruit Theme Week.

Thank you to Elise and Kerry for sharing some of this Royce' Chocolate (Japan) Nama Chocolate Au Lait gift box, from an overseas (Singapore) colleague, with me. These soft chocolate pieces, with a slight dusting of cocoa and flavored with just the right touch of Cherry Marnier (liqueur), were good served slightly chilled. Not every chocolate should be refrigerated, but I believe keeping these cool helped prolong their shelf life. The box came with a special little serving spoon to help in the serving process.

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Fruit Theme Week.
