Dominican Republic chocolate can often offer incredibly bold flavours, including prunes and raisins, but also exhibit tantalising flashes of spice such as cloves and cinnamon. But here the flavourmiesters at Madre have forced more flavour into a chocolate than one could think possible.
Here we have a 70% chocolate adulterated by smoke-dried jalapeno pepper, and in this case its simply wonderful. As you would expect, it gives a very warming experience with the chilli, but unlike so much other chilli chocolate, this is incredibly natural-tasting. There's nothing false, polished or overtly manufactured about Madre chocolate. Instead, Madre try to connect modern day manufacturing processes with historic flavours and origins.
If you do enjoy chilli chocolate, more are keen to try a more natural, organic approach then we're sure you'll love this one.
