Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and ABCD Theme Week, where I've selected chocolates with flavor inclusions that start with the letters A, B, C or D.

Today's Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries, and White Chocolate with Berries were from Domori srl (None, Italy).

Amarene - Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries

At the heart of these confections were candied, sour (Amarene) cherries that had a soft chew and a sweet flavor. The dark chocolate coating and dusting in cocoa powder helped to moderate the sweetness a bit. 

Italian-grown Amarene cherries are small and dark in color and are prized for their tart-sweet flavor. They're typically packed in syrup and used as a topping for a chocolate desserts.

Ingredients: Dark chocolate 60% (cocoa minimum 72% pasta di cacao, cocoa mass, cane sugar, cocoa butter, emulsifier: soy lecithin), candied amarena cherries 39% (amarena cherries, glucose-fructose syrup, sucrose, colouring agent: E163, acidifying agent: E330, natural flavors), cocoa powder 0.6% dextrose. 

White Chocolate (with) Berries

Domori's petite, pink "White Chocolate Berries" dessert bar was made with real cocoa butter (from tree to bar) and flavored (and colored) with raspberry (powder) and strawberry (powder). 

This pretty bar will please those with a sweet tooth. (The number one ingredient was sugar.) Combined with a hint of vanilla, the aroma was similar to a dessert mousse or berry-flavored vanilla cake frosting.

Ingredients: Cane sugar, cocoa butter, milk powder, raspberry powder, strawberry powder, emulsifier: soy lecithin, vanilla extract. (Non GMO ingredients; made without gluten)
