Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Scandinavian Chocolate Theme Week.

Today's Swedish Chocolate Ball was from Hedh Escalante Chocolatier (Malmo, Sweden). Jan Hedth and Maria Escalante have been producing a variety of chocolate confections since 2005, including some specially made for SAS Airlines--which is where I found today's Chocolate Ball.

Aroma notes for this round confection included: chocolate (fudge-cake), butter, and very light coconut.

The texture was soft, almost cake-like chocolate interspersed with chewy coconut shreds on the outside/covering.

Flavor notes for this generously sized ball included: rich chocolate fudge cake, with slightly buttery, nutty, mocha, very faint vanilla--and coconut.
