Welcome to Day #2 of Single Origin Milk Chocolate Theme Week.
Today's beautifully packaged Soyle Leve* Dark Milk Chocolate bar was from K'ul Chocolate (Minneapolis, MN).
This "100% Haitian bean" dark milk chocolate was flavored with star anise and cinnamon—in the style of spiced breakfast hot chocolate prepared in Petit Bourges, Haiti.
Star anise was the dominant flavor, masking some of the more subtle cacao notes. A hint of cinnamon added some warmth; and milk added some creamy texture.
Ingredients: Direct Trade Cacao Beans, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Whole Milk Powder, Organic Cacao Butter, Spices
*Soyle Leve is the Creole name for sunrise.
