Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Cashew Theme Week, where we have two entries today:
Today's chocolate was a Mint and Cashew 60% Cacao bar from Stone Grindz Chocolate (Scottsdale, AZ) was the first. This was re-sampled (to focus on the cashew part) this time.
Cashew and Mint is a relatively unique combination. How did they taste together in one bar?
The chocolate had a pleasing aroma with a hint of mint and some very subtle cashew nut flavor and texture. The chocolate was relatively smooth for a bar with nuts.
