Chilli, Orange and Cinnamon Chocolate Bar
Chilli chocolate at it's finest. This Orange, Cinnamon and Chilli Chocolate is a fruity Christmas-twist on the chilli chocolate classic. Infused with locally grown cayenne chillies and flavoured with orange oil this bar of dark chocolate is a beautiful balance of smoothness with a fire in the finish.
This 'Orange Mule' bar is a new and exciting sister of our classic signature 'Kicking Mule'. The chocolate eats with the characteristic smooth, richness of our signature dark chocolate flavoured with a festive orange spiciness. It's only after the chocolate has completely disappeared that the warmth of the chilli emerges and grows to tingle your tastebuds.
The chillies which are used to flavour the bars are grown by Charlye and Cecile Woolman in their market garden in Dorridge, a local village less than 10 miles from our workshop. They just happen to have a large greenhouse in their garden (it used to be used for chrysanthemums and now it's put to great use growing chillies for our chocolate bars). Cecile and Charlye start the plants off on a windowsill in the house very early in the year and move them out into an unheated greenhouse when the weather warms. The bright red chillies start to ripen in late July and there is a wonderful glut for the rest of the growing season. Three generations of the family have been using their home to grow all manner of tasty and beautiful produce for many years and now it is run as a small market garden with the majority of produce being used to feed the family and the rest being sold direct at local markets. We love their chilies - they are tasty, consistently great quality and have a really fiery kick.
The chillies are delivered fresh throughout the growing season and we dry them to preserve the flavour and infuse them in cocoa butter to bring the characteristic spicy heat into our chocolate. The cocoa butter is then mixed with our beautifully smooth signature dark chocolate. The batch is taste tested for heat. The chocolate is sourced sustainably and has been certified delicious by our Chief Taster and chilli fan, Elliot (aged 5).
