Today's Hazelnuts in Milk Chocolate (33% cocoa) bar from Chocolove (Boulder, CO) contained bits of roasted Oregon hazelnuts.

This bar became soft fairly quickly when placed near a sunny window. The bar's "sweet, creamy" Belgian milk chocolate base began to turn into a thick, chocolate hazelnut spread. Don't get me wrong, a spread made from this bar might make a great center for a chocolate croissant, or a topping for toast along with some chopped hazelnuts.

My only quibble with this bar: the chocolate was a bit sweet for my taste, but others may love it just the way it is.

And speaking of love, Chocolove customers get something special when they buy a bar -- a love poem printed inside the wrapper. (In this case, the poem was "One Way of Love" by Robert Browning.)

Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week.
