Remember our Walking Chocolate Tour of San Francisco? D was so inspired that he changed his dessert course - for his birthday dinner party - to include a curated chocolate tasting with a dozen tasty morsels from Spicely's Organics.
He started by sharing raw cacao nibs. Then he guided his friends through twelve chocolates that were infused with spices and teas.
They tried a wide variety of flavors and combinations, including - white chocolate-saffon, pink pepper-tulsi, jasmine, raspberry-rooibus, all-spice, cardamom-anise, lemon-tarragon, sage-lavender-orange, Chinese five spice, and lapsang souchong.
After they finished the tasting, it was a free-for-all. D had them line up and grab the extras.
My favorite is the lapsang souchong. It's exotic and smoky. I don't think many of the kids were fans. Fine...more for me!
