Aloha and welcome to Day #15 of Chocolate and Hawaii Theme Week(s). This is the second in a series of 2 oz. chocolate desserts using at least one ingredient from Hawaii.

Today's Macadamia, Sea Salt, Ginger Dark Chocolate small dessert was made with Kona and Ginger chocolates, Hawaiian Macadamia Nuts with sea salt, and Hawaiian Wildflower Honey from Chico Honey* (Chico, CA). 

Pieces of Kona-grown cacao dark chocolate and Ginger dark chocolate were covered with chopped whole, sea salted macadamia nuts) -- and drizzled with amber-colored Hawaiian Wildflower Honey. 

These four ingredients were full of complementary flavors. Two ounces of pure chocolate decadence--the goal of this small dessert series.

The Big Island chocolate had sweet green and rich dark chocolate notes; the ginger spice chocolate had dark chocolate spicy gingerbread notes, the mac nuts provided salty, softly crunchy, buttery nut texture, and the honey was rich and satisfying with far more flavor depth than most sweet toppings/sauces.

*The company sources honey from their own hives in California, Hawaii and Montana.
