Chocoholics meet Spicoholics!

News

The combination of chocolate with various spices and chillies can result in some stunning and surprising taste sensations.

We supply spices to several well-known and celebrated chocolatiers so thought it was about time we discovered what all the fuss is about!

Great fun ensued in the Seasoned Pioneers kitchen whilst we cooked up some inspirational marriages of flavour (in our opinion!)

Without further ado, let us share our best-loved creations with you, this is what we made:

Method – Using chunky bars of chocolate, simply melt your white, dark or milk chocolate gently in a bowl over a pan of simmering water or in a bowl on a low setting in the microwave. Once it’s melted, stir through your choice of spice blend and pour into individual moulds or a shallow tray. Place into the refrigerator until set, then turn out and enjoy!

Many other herbs and spices work well, including cinnamon, sea salt, lavender, ground cardamom, ginger, mandarin peel, barberries, crushed chipotle chillies, mint, African Tsire powder… the limit is really your imagination, experimenting is tremendous fun and a great way to entertain the kids!
