Welcome to Day #8 of Cocoa Nibs Theme Week.

Today's Caramelized Cocoa Nib Bar from Charles Chocolates (San Francisco, CA) was made with 72% Bittersweet Chocolate.

I was greeted by a rich chocolate aroma when I opened this package. Taking a bite of this thick bar was tougher than I thought it would be. (It looks amazing, but you may want to cut it up carefully with a knife first.)

A generous helping of caramelized nibs on the bar provided texture and an attractive golden color; and the sweet crunchy bits complemented the smooth, solid bittersweet dark chocolate.
