Salted Caramel Chocolate Charnia Fossil
Above all, when making our chocolates, we only use the best ingredients. Because of this we chose a family company in Anglesey to provide our Halen Môn sea salt. We think this is the perfect match for our creamy, milk chocolate. Next, we add a rich caramel taste and create our delicious salted caramel chocolates. Finally, we give our chocolate its distinctive shape, the beautiful Charnia Fossil.
The Charnia fossil has a delicate leaf shape with leaf like ridges branching left and right. We have carefully matched this in our hand-made chocolates, showing all of the intricate details of this beautiful fossil. We are really pleased with the results and are sure you will be too!
Each box of our salted caramel Charnia Fossil Collection contains 8 fossil chocolates. The leaf like fronds measure approximately 5.5 cm in length and each chocolate 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 because the first fossilised specimen was found there by schoolboy Roger Mason in 1957. The original fossil is in Leicester Museum.
