Tingle the taste buds with a chilli chocolate gift box from friars.co.uk. Rich, indulgent chocolate truffles infused with chillies for a mouth warming and fragrant taste experience. Chilli and chocolate has been paired for thousands of years, as far back as the Mayan era where they harvested, fermented, roasted and ground cocoa seeds into a paste; before mixing the paste with water and chilli peppers, along with other ingredients, to make a chocolate drink with a spicy kick.
European chocolatiers dropped the use of chillies and sweetened the chocolate with sugar instead as the flavour was too bitter for their consumers. The chilli chocolate partnership is thought to have returned to the European market following the practice being re-introduced through the novel 'Chocolat' in 1999.
Friars luxury chilli chocolate gift boxes are thoughtfully put together in house and the chilli chocolate truffles are selected for their unique and elegant flavours to enhance the characteristics of the chocolate with ingredients including lemon, lime, ginger and mango; as well as real chilli flakes.
