Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Nut Butter Theme Week.
Today's Almond Butter filled chocolate and Caramelized Almond Cup were handcrafted at Chocolate Maya (Santa Barbara, CA).
The Almond Butter piece was described as having "toasty spices blended in (a) creamy almond butter." And the Caramelized Almond Cup's description read: "solid dark chocolate and caramelized California almonds."
Both were quite good and as promised. The former, a vegan, gluten free Almond Butter filled dome had well balanced, nutty, almond butter aroma and flavor with a trace of light upbeat spice and was covered with a high-quality, lightly decorated (spotted) chocolate shell.
The Caramelized Almond Cup was wall-to-wall, high-quality dark chocolate studded with caramelized (but not too sweet, thank you!) crunchy almond pieces that had received just the right amount of heat.
