I won some lovely gourmet bonbons from Trish at Off Camera With Trish Van Pilsum. The tasty little treats come from Alma Chocolates out of Portland, OR. The first chocolate is a Mexican Chocolate Truffle “gently spiced with chile de arbol and cinnamon”.
I bit through the outer shell of dark chocolate and cocoa to a rich and smooth truffle center. It melted in my mouth and once the truffle was gone, the light spice of the chiles remained. I wasn’t sure I’d like the spicy chiles in my chocolate, but I really loved it! I could definitely have eaten more of these!
