In Darkness All Colors Agree
These two dark chocolate bars (both with almond, made in France and Switzerland), were a gift from Nicole after a recent trip to France. I ate them before she got a chance to tell me how well they pair with red wine.
Almonds and chocolate work together so well. I really feel I can trust Lindt to do chocolate flavors beautifully, and this did not disappoint.
Miel means "honey," and the honey in the second bar gave it an edge, flavorwise. It's possible the chocolate quality here was not quite as fine as with the Lindt, but the almonds were well-dispersed and crackly.
Merci so much, Nicole.
