I know what you might be thinking -> what does chili have to do with chocolate? Well, chili is a spicy stew, but it also refers to those yummy hot chili peppers. Some may say that heat doesn’t belong with chocolate, but I think the right amount of heat lends a nice flavor to a good chocolate.
Drexelius Chocolates only carries the best all natural gourmet chocolate. Some of the bars do not have any added flavors. What you are enjoying is straight from the cacao bean, brought out during fermentation, roasting and processing. Other bars may be infused with flavor or have added ingredients like nuts or fruit. We make sure to pick bars where the flavors do not try to outshine or overpower the glorious chocolate. Try these fantastic spicy chocolate bars and enjoy National Chili Day (Feb 26) with a little heat:
BruCo – Ancho
Taza Chocolate Mexicano – Guajillo Chili
You can also add chocolate to your chili to lend a deeper flavor. The chocolate will soften the acidity of the tomatoes. Or add a little heat and spice up your favorite brownies. Yum!
