Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.
Today's Coconut filled chocolate was created by Shekoh Confections (Palo Alto, CA).
Aroma notes included: dark chocolate (fudge brownie), very faint tart lemon green herb (oxalis, sorrel), and coconut (very slightly fruity coconut, coconut water).
Texture(s) in this small, filled chocolate dome were very smooth. A velvety, ultra-thin dark chocolate shell covered a very creamy, Valrhona white chocolate, coconut infused interior.
The toasted coconut flavored ganache (filling) was accented with a subtle hint of coconut liqueur. Bold (but smooth), slightly earth dark chocolate prevented this confection from being too sweet. The result: flavor depth and rich, complementary flavor complexity.
Maker's description: Coconut infusion, toasted shredded coconut, Valrhona white chocolate, coconut liqueur.
