A Chocolate A Day #3 – Cardamom Burnt-Sugar Sesame

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 third chocolate is the Cardamom with Burnt-Sugar Sesame.

I never would have thought to put a sesame and sugar crisp on top of a chocolate bon bon, but there it was. I bit a tiny part of the crisp alone and loved it! It mixed well and the chocolate itself was rich and smooth with a light taste of the cardamom at the end. Although I don’t think I could eat a whole box of these, one or two more would be really great!
