Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Cashews Theme Week.

Today's Sheila G's Cashew Toffee Thindulgent Milk Chocolate Bark was created and distributed by Brownie Brittle, LLC (West Palm Beach, FL).

The bark had a sweet, berry aroma, and was a blend of sweet, creamy milk chocolate, crunchy toffee bits and mild nutty bits.

The sweetness level overpowered the more delicate nut flavor of the cashews (their flavor was more evident in the aftertaste)—a common challenge with cashews. However, some looking for a chocolate confection might prefer tasting the sugar. A subtle hint of Himalayan sea salt helped balance out the sweetness a bit.

The base chocolate was reasonably high quality for a commercial milk chocolate. I could still taste that it was chocolate, unlike many other sweet brittles.

The pieces of bark are a good size and are easy to share with others. And the resealable packaging made it transportable for an outdoor adventure or snack on the go.

Welcome to Day #13 of Chocolate and Nicaragua Theme Week, and Day #1 Chocolate and Cashew Theme Week.

Today's Cashew 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate Nicaragua bar was from Argencove Fine Artisan Chocolate (Granada, Nicaragua).

This dark bar had a slight cookie/biscuit/cracker aroma and a smooth chocolate with delicate, complex fruit flavor notes.

Lightly salted and roasted cashew halves on the back of the bar gave the chocolate a soft crunchy texture.
