I swear, anything Dana Dooley (owner of Honest Chocolates) touches turns delicious.
I had a dark chocolate chili peanut butter cup that was amazing! At first I didn’t even want to try it. I mean, Honest Chocolates has such a large selection that it took me a few years to try everything, and at the very end I decided to give the chili peanut butter cups a try. They are good. It actually reminded me of a savory cajun spice, but it was still sweet somehow! It’s hard to describe, but it’s still chocolate, not spicy and more savory than any other chocolate I’ve had. Deelish!
I also tried their smoky ganache, and I never thought that I would like sweets that weren’t too sweet (or else what’s the point?!) but I’m in love.
