You can leave your kids’ Halloween haul alone. Who wants Hershey’s when award-winning Ritual Chocolate has just come out with four new bars?
The new Utah Mountain Line includes bars made with 55 percent to 75 percent cacao—one is flavored with pine nuts, one is infused with juniper and lavender grown by Lavender Hill Farms in Eden, Utah. The honeycomb toffee on the top of another bar is made with Hollow Tree Honey, a local raw wildflower honey. The S’Mores bar involves caramelized sugar and graham crackers, of course. Best paired with a glass of milk.
Just for the holidays, the limited edition Mulled Wine bar was created in partnership with Old Town Cellars, using a blend of mulling spices to mix with cacao nibs aged in red wine barrel and dehydrated.
Utah really is the chocolate state. We have more fine chocolatiers than anywhere else in the country and stores here carry an incredible array of chocolate from all over the world. Want taste proof? Get a ticket to Caputo’s annual chocolate fest, this year featuring chocolate made in Iceland.
