Fruits and nuts. Seems artisan as well as mainstream confectioners can’t get enough of them. Be it pistachios, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, berries (of all kinds), apples, oranges, the list goes on. This year it appears that pistachios —in particular — have their time in the sun to shine as a trendy inclusion amongst a broad range of artisanal chocolatiers.
A quick Google search of the nut brought several hits: First, there’s Ethereal Chocolate’s Chocolate Bar – Pistachios + Cranberries + Sea Salt. It’s a 66% organic dark chocolate married with crunchy pistachios, the fruity sweetness of dried cranberries and the added bonus of flakes of fleur de sel.
