Welcome to Day #7 of DEFGHIJK Theme Week, another opportunity to work our way through the alphabet with chocolate items.
Today features the letter "i" as in imperial—a word that conjures up images of royalty and fine food fit for an emperor. (The word has French and Roman roots.)
Add an "e" at the end, and you have today's attractively packaged, 6-piece box of Dark Chocolate Peppermint Imperiales from Fran's Chocolates, Ltd. (Seattle, WA). These dark chocolates were filled with soft, silken dark chocolate centers, infused with artfully balanced peppermint flavor, and sprinkled with bits of peppermint candy.
Perfect for entertaining royal guests, or for you as a special treat. Alas these may be a seasonal (holiday) item. I hope they'll be back next year. I believe Fran's may also produce a cocoa nib version.
