This bar is truly a global medley, with single-origin chocolate from Ghana, the unique notes of Southern Artisan Chocolate, and of course the kick of Mexican spices like warm cinnamon and feisty cayenne pepper. The heat kicks in just a bit after your first bite, boosting the creamy chocolate flavors to unexpected heights. It'll have you hot and bothered.
But you can always taste the South in these small-batch bars from the heart of Music City. In maker Scott Witherow's signature Southern Artisan Chocolate method, traditional technique meets modern innovation and a distinctly Southern twang. Cacao beans are slow-roasted, stone-ground and combined with brown sugar, giving the finished chocolate a subtle, delicious molasses flavor sleepily sweet, like the best country songs.
