Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate, Pumpkins, and Warm Fall Spices.
Today's Golden Goodness Caramelized sugar and 100% cacao nibs in sweet white chocolate (bar) was from Chuao Chocolatier (Carlsbad, CA).
Aroma notes for this white chocolate and nibs bar included: faint cacao, cookie dough, and faint caramel and vanilla.
Texture: Sweet white chocolate blended with caramelized sugar held an abundant field of crunchy cacao nibs.
Flavor notes included: cocoa nibs, caramel, white chocolate and vanilla. Caramelized sugar added warm flavor depth. And this caramelization, and vanilla, added a feeling of warmth to me.
Yes, 31% cacao white chocolate is sweet. But the other elements added textural and flavor contrast created appealing complexity. The nibs and a perfect amount of salt helped balance flavors and sweetness level.
I paired this white chocolate bar with a cup of warm spiced tea with cinnamon and vanilla.
