The Cardamon with Cocoa Nibs Charnia Chocolate Fossil
To some, Cardamon and chocolate might seem an unusual mix of flavours. However, we think it is a partnership that works perfectly together. Usually this aromatic spice is combined with savoury dishes. So we understand that some might think combining it with chocolate is a little strange. However, we think the warm, sweet taste of cardamon adds beautifully to our creamy, white chocolate.
The Charnia fossil is a delicate leaf shape with leaf like ridges branching left and right. Therefore, we have skillfully recreated its delicate leaf like fronds in chocolate to show the beauty of this special fossil.
After we have created the cardomaon chocolate crunchy cocoa nibs are liberally sprinkled in. Finally, we pop the chocolate into our individual Charnia shaped moulds and create the Cardamon and Cocoa Nibs Charnia chocolates. Delicious!
There are 8 chocolate fossils measuring approximately 5.5 cm in length and weighing just over 5g in each box. So more than just a mouthful to enjoy! Above all, we are really pleased with the results and hope all our fossil and chocolate lovers will be too!
The Charnia Fossil is named after Charnwood Forest in Leicestershire, England. This is where the first fossilised specimen was found by schoolboy Roger Mason in 1957. The original fossil is now in Leicester Museum. It is one of the Ediacaran lifeforms. It has segmented, leaf-like ridges that branch alternately to the right and left.
