It probably hasn’t escaped your notice, but Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. And what better gift for someone you love than great chocolate. This cute little box of ganaches turned up on my doorstep last week (not from a secret admirer unfortunately!), so rather than just scoff them in 15 seconds, I thought I should probably tell you about them.
‘Mara des Bois’ Strawberry & Rhubarb
Strawberry jelly layere with rhubarb and white chocolate ganache in a milk chocolate square. A tangy and sweet filling that’s well matched to the milk chocolate, with the slightly tart strawberry helping to cut through the sweetness.
Blackberry & Star Anise
Blackberry purée and dark chocolate ganache, infused with star anise in a dark chocolate square. A rich and fruity dark ganache with a smooth texture and just a hint of anise.
Lemon & Violet
Crushed lemon purée and violet white chocolate ganache in a milk chocolate heart. Sweet, but zingy! The lemon overpowers any trace of violet for me, but that’s quite Ok. Not the most sophisticated chocolate in the selection, but one that’s packed full of flavour.
Lychee, Rose & Raspberry
A lychee, rose & raspberry dark chocolate ganache in a dark chocolate form. More lychee and rose than raspberry, this dark ganache is another rich and intense experience.
Overall, a simple and elegant little box of ganaches that are great for those who love fruity flavours and want something a little more sophisticated. They’re packed with flavour and make the perfect simple gift for Valentine’s Day.
