Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Banana Theme Week.
Today's Monkey Bar Mini was handcrafted by those at Mayana Chocolate in Spooner, Wisconsin.
The bar-shaped confection was a total sugar bomb (with at least three types of sugar), but it was a very nicely flavored one.
At the heart of this sweet thing was a foundation layer of authentic banana caramel with a faint hint of butter rum flavor.* This layer was topped by a layer of light as a feather vanilla marshmallow. And this sweet stack was covered in 66% dark chocolate, and festively sprinkled with what might have been...more sugar.
*This flavor was conjured with banana-rum liqueur according to the ingredients list.
