I'm becoming more convinced that Italy makes the best chocolate in the world. Venchi, in the Piemonte, is living proof. How can there be so many wonderful chocolate companies in Italy that I've never heard of? It's almost as if the Italians kept all of this goodness for themselves. Dark eyes, Dark hair, Dark chocolate - I could have guessed.
The Cuor di cacao chocolate is a 75% Ecuador cocoa shell filled with an extra bitter chocolate cream. Stunning. This is a perfect bite, incorporating both a crisp chocolate shell and a filling with just enough cream to show you that they know how to do it. I made this little guy last 6 bites, and started shopping for more.
