Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Italian Holiday Theme Week.
This week I'm making my way through a Holiday Italian Cioccolato* Sleeve assortment box from Valenza Chocolatier (Costa Mesa, CA). Created by Amy Jo Pedone, this Italian inspired collection was filled with rich holiday flavors that were cross-culturally delicious.
Today's chocolate was Valenza Chocolatier's Fennel holiday chocolate. This attractive, glossy dark dome with green was filled with a dark chocolate ganache and infused with roasted fennel seeds.
The flavors unfolded nicely so I could taste the chocolate, a very light herbal infusion note, and then a nice seed and fennel finish.
*Cioccolato is the Italian word for chocolate.
