Happy Valentines Day to all who celebrate! Heartfelt thanks to my friend and neighbor Toni for the gift of filled chocolates, in heart and flower form. A seasoned world traveler, she has contributed many new chocolates to Chocolate Banquet in the past decade.
Today's 3-piece assortment in a petite, purple, heart-shaped box were from Go To Chocolate (San Carlos, CA). Chef and chocolatier Michael Hohenthal has been creating his own small-batch chocolates (filled chocolates and bars) since 2005, and sells them at local farmers markets (a good source for finding new chocolates).
Collectively, the three glossy pieces in this box had a sweet dark chocolate with a very faint coconut aroma.
- The first heart-shaped filled chocolate had a light, fluffy marshmallow filling with a light citrus-sweet tang.
- The second (also heart-shaped) piece contained a sweet, dark chocolate ganache filling with fudge brownie flavor notes.
- The third, flower shaped, filled chocolate had an intriguing caramelized flavor, with very light floral and fruit notes.
