The refreshing taste of peppermint and chocolate's comforting, indulgent qualities are commonly paired in confections and desserts, especially around the holiday season. Askinosie Chocolate launched a Peppermint Dark Chocolate Bar that features this timeless ingredient pairing, as well as a twist that elevates the classic combination.
The 58% dark chocolate bar is made with cocoa beans sourced from Mababu, Tanzania, as well as cocoa butter, organic cane sugar, turbinado sugar and sea salt. Askinosie Chocolate calls its new creation "the new after-dinner mint," as it enriches the familiar chocolate mint flavor with one additional ingredient—organic cardamom.
Cardamom is emerging as a spice that is easily integrated into a wide range of sweet and savory applications, delivering a flavor experience that's as familiar as ginger, yet much more exotic.
