Chocolate.com: Sweet Dreams of Chocolate
Chocolate.com told me that they wanted to send some free chocolate for me to write about. As you might imagine, with a name like Chocolate.com they have a lot of chocolate on their site. I wondered what might come in my package.
Could it be…
A Vere Ultimo Organic Dark Chocolate Bar? This is a certified 100% organic single-origin dark chocolate bar with 75% cacao content. I’ve been enjoying trying single-origin chocolate. I’d enjoy trying a different brand.
A Choclatique Premium Chocolate Chip Sampler? I’ve never tried this brand of chocolate chips. Maybe they would send me these so I would get hooked on using them whenever my recipes called for chocolate chips.
I thought about asking what would be in the box, but I decided that would kill the surprise.
The Nautical Collection 60 Piece Gift Assortment. This chocolate gift box contained almond butter crunch, toasted almonds in milk chocolate, orange crunch in dark sweet chocolate, creamy butter caramel with a pecan in dark sweet chocolate, and solid milk chocolate – all in sea themed shapes.
I certainly wasn’t going to melt these chocolates down to bake with them. However, I could use them to top some beach-themed cupcakes!
Beach cupcakes will be sailing your way soon!
These are the first cupcakes I’ve made where I needed to provide tasters with a topper guide to ensure they got the flavor they liked.
