We went back to Cocoa Parlor so I could get some more of their chocolate bars, and Robert picked up a six pack of their truffles. Look how pretty the box was!
Robert decided to get two each of three flavors, so we could both try them. He is sweet like that.
The peanut butter crunch was milk chocolate over a peanut butter center filled with crunchy bits, like puffed rice or puffed quinoa. It was delicious, like a super fancy crunchy Reese’s peanut butter cup.
The dark chocolate truffle was sooooo good. It was very dark, with a dark ganache center that melted in your mouth. I ate this one and immediately wanted to go back to the store for more of them.
The caramel de Oaxaca was sublime and fantastic. It was a rich and creamy cinnamon center, covered in dark chocolate and dusted in chili pepper. I was surprised at how much I loved it. I expected a standard caramel, and I got so much more.
We decided we are going back to Cocoa Parlor in a few weeks for a truffle run. Stay tuned!
