I hereby declare February as Lick My Spoon’s official Chocolate Month. Yayyy!!!!
What does this mean for you? Chocolate. Lots of chocolate. I have had the good fortune to have sampled many a bon bon in my life…and in the name of love (chocolate love), I’d like to share some of my favorites with you 🙂
Throughout this entire month, Lick My Spoon will be hosting a series of Chocolate Giveaways! Because…you know…things can get kind of emotional around Valentine’s Day, and it’s always good to have some good emergency chocolate on hand.
So, without further ado…first up is Socola Chocolatier’s pretty-in-pink Aphrodite’s Delight collection.
You may remember this sweet n’ sassy, sister-owned-and-operated company from last year’s Valentine’s Day write up. It has been awesome to see Socola grow over the past year and gain some much–deserved praise in the choco-world.
Aphrodite’s Delight will be sure to, um, send the right message, to that special someone with it’s two featured flavors: Hot Lava and Burnt Baby Burnt.
Hot Lava is a two-layer confection with dark chocolate champagne ganache on the bottom and a raspberry pate de fuit on top that, yes, oozes like hot lava when you bite into it. It has love written all over it.
Burnt Baby Burnt is burlesque beauty of a truffle. The dark chocolate ganache here is coupled with a rich, burnt caramel flavor that is bold and sexy. The red Hawaiian sea salt crystals on top bring out the caramel notes and adds a nice little crunch as well.
To win this 12-piece box o’ love…
