Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Peanut Butter Theme Week.

Today's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups were from Exquisito Chocolates, LLC (Little Havana, Miami, FL). 

These filled peanut butter cup confections had a smooth, and relatively complex, dark chocolate-forward aroma and flavor, that blended well with the sweeter, slow-roasted peanut (smooth peanut butter) flavors in the filling.

Unlike many other chocolatiers, Exquisito does make bean-to-bar chocolate and offers some single origin bars. The cacao used for the outer (73% cacao) dark chocolate cup "shell" may have been made using Tumaco (Colombia) cacao (according to information, as of 4/14/22, on the Exquisito Chocolates website).

Maker's tasting notes: "A handcrafted version of the candy classic, but now made with real ingredients and sustainably sourced cacao. Picture if your favorite childhood treat went off and got its PhD."

Ingredients: Cacao, unrefined cane sugar, peanuts, cacao butter, powdered sugar (sugar, corn starch), sea salt.

Allergen-related information: (Contained peanuts.) For more information, contact company.
