I was honored to receive a sampler package from the Cholive Company. As always, chocolates in the mail are among my favorite things. The package arrived with stir sticks and an adorable magnetic case to store these edible treasures. Cocktail chocolates? Very charming and decadent. As soon as I opened the gorgeous package with frilly black and gold crinckly shredded paper, all I could think was warm, toasted marshmallows and wintry hot chocolate. I know Cholives are supposed to go in a sexy dessert cocktail, but I got these treats when when it was a snow globe outside.
Cholives are olive-shaped dark chocolates that have a rich whole cream ganache inside. Not only did I get a taste of their signature product, I also received Chruffles—a recently released series of truffles. They are filled with mint ganache, caramel, and other flavors. As usual, my preferred duo is the raspberry chocolate. Thank you, Cholive Company, for introducing me to your tasty creations!
