Welcome to Day #11 of Chocolate and Hazelnuts Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and Holiday Spirits Theme Week.
The aroma notes for this bar included spices (dates, vanilla, and sweet saffron), chocolate and nut (hazelnuts, roasted almond)
The filled bar was covered in an ultra-dark (100% cacao) shell. Bold, balanced, bittersweet (with a slight roasted note), this chocolate shell broke with a well-tempered snap, revealing a rich, flavorful center with plump pieces of dried plum, lightly spirited (rum) notes, and an occasional glimmer of hazelnut, date and vanilla.
A sophisticated, fruit-sweetened, spirited dark bar with grown-up flavors for the holidays. Not overly sweet. Sugar plum fairies, all grown up.
