Today was the last day (Day #7) of Chocolate and Dominican Republic Theme Week.
This dark chocolate 70% cacao bar from Bar Au Chocolat (Manhattan Beach, CA) was crafted from two ingredients: cacao and cane sugar. The single origin dark bar was carefully esconced in a gold-stenciled manila outer wrapper, and a beautiful, copper-gold inner foil wrap.
The cacao beans used to make this tasty bar came from the Duarte Province in the northern part of the Dominican Republic (DR). The chocolate had a balanced red/acidic fruit note combined with a smoother, darker, earthier flavor that I didn't pick up in other DR bars this week.
