This 60% dark chocolate has been combined with crunchy peanut butter from Big Spoon Roasters, for a creamy bar reminiscent of a sophisticated peanut butter cup. The taste of roasted peanuts gives way to a creamy, smooth texture with hints of velvety graham and a kiss of salt.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Chocolate maker Shawn Askinosie spent 20 years as a criminal defence lawyer before switching his attention to chocolate in 2005. He travelled across four continents to build relationships with farmers and figure out how they could work together to create the perfect chocolate. Now, he and his team place great emphasis on social responsibility: putting fairness, justice, sustainability, and education at the heart of everything they do.
The Mababu Central Cocoa Fermentery (CCF) lies in the tiny village of Mababu, between the slopes of the Livingstone Mountains and the shores of Lake Malawi. The CCF is run by Mama Mpoki and serves a small group of around 60 cocoa-growing families, collectively fermenting and drying their beans to allow the region’s unique flavour profile to shine through in every bar.
