Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week.
Today's "Sweet Christmas Greetings" Dark Chocolate 70% filled with hazelnut praline and hazelnut brittle (bar) was made in Austria and distributed by Zotter Chocolates US LLC (Fort Myers, FL).
Aroma notes included: hazelnut biscuit (cookie) dipped in a thick sweet dark chocolate mocha beverage.
A smooth, creamy ultra-dark tasting (70%) chocolate covering allowed for more flavor depth and contrast with a sweet, nutty center.
Inside this Christmas holiday-themed, filled chocolate bar was a fragrant, praline slightly flaky, crunchy and authentically nutty praline-style layer melded with a hazelnut brittle layer. A winning combination of flavors that harmonized together without tasting overly sweet, despite sugar being the number one ingredient.
