Bienvenidos (Welcome) to Day #3 of Chocolate and Chilis Theme Week.

Today's Milk Chocolate Habanero round was part of a Chili Chocolate Collection* from Trader Joe's (Monrovia, CA).

Covered in milk chocolate (decorated with red peppers), the dark chocolate ganache (filling) had caramel overtones and a restrained amount of habanero chili/chile.

Habanero peppers rank relatively high—100,000 - 350,000 SHU (Scoville heat units)—on the Scoville scale used to measure spicy pepper heat. (Although there is one habanero (the Red Savina) that tops the charts at an impressive 350,000 - 580,000 SHU.)

*This collection or assortment of milk and dark chocolate discs were filled/infused with four different chili/chile flavor fillings.
