My wife certainly knows how to spread a little Easter happiness! This was one of three Easter treats she obtained from the wonderful Lick The Spoon in Corsham.
These little beauties, Aztec Gold, are generously-sized domes of excellent 70% Saint Domingue chocolate, containing a lime and chilli ganache.
Each dome is coated with a swirling sheen of red cocoa butter and edible gold - they shine like jewels and it almost seems a shame to eat them - but eat them we must, *sigh*…
Inside is a beautifully rich ganache made with fresh lime juice and a hint of chilli. They’re perfectly fine for non-fire-eaters, since the chilli is really very subtle - just enough to provide a slight tickle if you eat several in succession, which it’s very tempting to do!
It’s a few years since I last sampled Lick The Spoon’s wares, and it’s good to see they’re still on top form. I really can’t recommend these highly enough!
