Nick from Chocomize offered to let me customize my own chocolate bars and I was all over that like white on rice.
I LOVE that Chocomize started out as an accident. Three recent college graduates put a bag of candy into the fridge because their chocolate had melted on a hot day. Out came a bag of hardened chocolate, with their nuts, gummy bears and other goodies melted right in. This delicious treat became the impetus for their company! The idea is simple-use the most premium chocolates and design and create your own chocolate bar using a variety of nuts, spices, fruits and candies. Simple and brilliant!
Nick asked me to come up with a few different ideas, and I think I misunderstood him on that one, because he sent me not one, but two bars! I was thinking something along the lines of a salted caramel for flavor. I also liked the idea of adding Pop Rocks to the bar, because one of my favorite chocolate bars from Israel is chocolate with Pop Rocks. I got one milk chocolate bar and one dark chocolate bar, both with sea salt, butterscotch pieces, pop rocks, and toffee pieces. The milk chocolate one even had a pretty chocolate butterfly on it!
Unfortunately, I’m having some technical difficulties with my camera/computer right now. I think they are in a fight! I can’t show you pictures of the chocolates I created, since I’m not tech savvy enough for that, but I will show you some pictures from the Chocomize website, just to make you drool!
Not only were these pretty, but they were GOOD! I really enjoyed the flavor combinations I chose, and thought the flavors went well together. Plus, they are just plain good chocolate bars, ones that I would eat without all of the goodies on top! I have a billion ideas running through my head, and hope to use these for gifts too!
