A few words about
our creations...


Hidden inside a couture-worthy box with pink accents, this 70% Expert Bar brings together the finest Mexican cocoa beans for a spicy take on a classic sweet treat. In his relentless quest for the perfect cocoa combination, La Maison du Chocolat's Master Chef travels to Mexico to choose cocoa beans with a unique aromatic intensity. With their slight sharpness and spicy notes of red fruit, these beans showcase cocoa's full-bodied flavor. The addition of a pinch of brown sugar creates a sweetness which combines with natural spiciness for a warm flavor which is as addictive as it is unexpected.

Tasting

Our chocolates are best appreciated at room temperature. We advise that you cut your chocolate in two and let it melt in the mouth to allow time for the flavours to develop. When you are tasting several chocolates, it is best to start with a plain chocolate, then move on to flavoured varieties: first those with fruits, then spices, then alcohol.

Ingredients

cocoa beans from Mexico, brown sugar, cocoa butter, sugar, emulsifier (E322 soy lecithin). Dark chocolate (70% cocoa minimum, pure cocoa butter).

Craftsmanship and aromatic profiles

La Maison du Chocolat's Expert Bars are made with couverture chocolate and contain a significant amount of cocoa butter (over 30%) for an incredibly smooth texture. Each of La Maison du Chocolat's bespoke bars has been made from the finest cocoa. Nicolas Cloiseau, La Maison du Chocolat's chef and holder of the prestigious title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France, has chosen 6 cocoas with very different profiles, focusing on more than just their cocoa content to include their aromatic palettes. He believes that a cocoa content of 62% to 70% produces the ultimate taste: the authentic flavor is often lost with a cocoa content over 72%.
