Today was Day #1 of Chocolate Surprise Theme Week. Sometimes surprises come in the form of gifts from traveling friends.

Thank you to Toni for this heart-shaped, 3-piece chocolate assortment box. Once again, I'm a fortunate beneficiary of her fabulous adventures -- this time her recent trip to London, where today's chocolates were made.

These three chocolates from Prestat LTD (London) were all good. Each seemed carefully crafted, well balanced, and had a unique flavor profile.

My favorite was the last one, the Passion Fruit Fondant -- covered with smooth but rich tasting dark chocolate. Inside was a sweet, flowing white fondant filling, infused with fresh and authentic-tasting passion fruit puree.

The crunchy rice cereal layer in the Rice Crisp Fondant piece balanced the soft, surrounding milk chocolate. And the dark chocolate ganache in the Dark Chocolate Truffle had a nice, slight bright fruit/berry jam note one occasionally finds in dark single origin bars.

Prestat is committed to trading fairly, and uses no genetically modified ingredients.
