Dark Chilli Charnia Fossil Chocolate
Chilli and chocolate- what a great combination and one that has been around for a long time! The first recorded use between these two super ingredients was by the Mayan civilization, back in 250 and 900 CE. So, a very long time ago. When chocolate was bought to Europe, the chilli got replaced by sugar, but now it’s back and wow what a hit!
To create our Chilli Charnia Chocolate Fossils, we blended rich, dark chocolate together with the warmth of this spice. Most importantly, we added just enough to add a richness to our chocolate without overpowering it. Next, we added just the right amount of sugar to ensure the full chocolate taste with no harsh bitterness. Finally, we carefully crafted our chocolate into the beautiful Charnia fossil shapes. As a result, each Charnia chocolate gives you the smooth taste of chocolate and then a warm afterglow on your tongue. Delicious!
Our Chilli Charnia Chocolate Fossils come in boxes of 8 chocolates. Each individual Charnia fossil chocolate measures approximately 5.5 cm in length and weighs just over 5g. So they are more than just a mouthful!
The Charnia is a genus of frond-like Ediacaran lifeforms with segmented, leaf-like ridges branching alternately to the right and left. It was named after Charnwood Forest in Leicestershire, England, where the first fossilised specimen was found by schoolboy Roger Mason in 1957. The original fossil is in Leicester Museum.
