Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Nicaragua Theme Week. I'm finishing this off with a coconut bonbon from Momotombo Chocolate (Managua, Nicaragua) that had been carefully stored away in our chocolate vault.

I had previously sampled a trio of these bonbon style chocolates made with Nicaraguan cacao, in Nicaragua, back in 2012; but I hadn't featured the Coconut flavor, that was rolled in toasted coconut bits.

Flavorful, and temporarily transporting... I enjoyed imagining I was on vacation near the ocean and coconut trees in Central America.
