Antidote 100% Raw Chocolate with Dates

Antidote 100% Raw Chocolate with Dates

Pin It

This Xochipilli bar uses the same 100% raw cocoa base as the Tonacatecuhtli, however, there is a touch of natural sweetness offered by the dried dates and to my mind it works incredibly well. You have a balance of bitter, acidic 100% chocolate against a deep, all-consuming sweetness from the Middle Eastern fruit which does provide a respite from the acidity of the chocolate. What's more you have a contrast between the remarkable smoothness of the chocolate and the soft, chewiness of the dates. 

Those complimentary flavours and textures make this bar the perfect lunchtime pick-me-up as well as a self-indulgent evening exploring real chocolate. As with the other 100% bar from Antidote, is worth pointing out that this is a much more refined bar than you might expect from raw chocolate. It is supremely smooth and has a flavour profile more akin to conventional very dark bars. Part of this could be explained by the fact that it is a balance of raw and roasted beans.
