Happy Holidays and welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate Truffle Bar Week. The year (2023) is ending on a soft, sweet and occasionally spicy note. 

Today's Spicy Hot Chocolate dark chocolate truffle bar was from Seattle Chocolate Company (Seattle, WA). The company has been offering a variety of chocolate truffle bars for many years. This one was part of a holiday-themed series. Today's wrapper was adorned with two monkeys in a lush green jungle canopy wearing Santa hats, harvesting hot peppers. One is also enjoying a white ceramic cup of spicy hot chocolate.

Aroma notes for this Spicy Hot Chocolate bar included: rich hot dark (drinking) chocolate with cinnamon and faint salt/savory and barely detectable vegetable/pepper notes; and faint vanilla.

The flavor notes for this smooth textured and flavored bar delivered on the promise of the aroma notes (above)--with a deeper dive into sweet and spicy dark chocolate. Cinnamon and vanilla added warmth, and cayenne pepper added a little kick--enough to add flavor, not enough to set off any fire alarms. Just right for me...a warm chocolate experience on a winter-y Christmas Eve.

Ingredients: "dark chocolate (cocoa mass*, cane sugar, cocoa butter*, organic soy lecithin, natural vanilla), non-hydrogenated coconut oil, sea salt, organic vanilla, cayenne pepper, cinnamon."

Allergen-related information: "Contains soy and coconut. This product is manufactured in a plant that processes milk, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, and wheat products."
