Dark Chocolate Crunch

Dark Chocolate Crunch

8/10: A good truffle, in my mind, would have a smooth base with a consistent flavor, and something that truly makes it unique. This has both, but unfortunately the two fight each other. The center of raw cocoa, coconut, dates, and agave was deliciously smooth and sweet. The cacao nibs on the outside, in contrast, certainly added character, but the bitterness was too intense for my palate in contrast with the truffle. To be fair, raw cacao nibs have never been a favorite of mine. But the sweetness of the truffle makes their bitterness all too apparent here and I much preferred the chocolate of the truffle alone.
