Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Cinnamon Theme Week. Cinnamon makes a great front man, but also a dynamite supporting player. A background hint of cinnamon warms up any flavor profile considerably. Today, we move from chilies and cinnamon to other flavors with a cinnamon spark.

This Eagle Ranch Pistachio chocolate, part of a 15-piece Every Flavor Collection box from John and Kira's (Philadelphia, PA), was covered with dark chocolate. Inside was a smooth, creamy white filling with ground pistachio nuts from the Schweer family's pistachio grove (Eagle Ranch, New Mexico) -- spiced with a well-balanced dash of cinnamon.
