The packaging is pretty simple but a bit different, the square 80g bar comes wrapped in a little bag, this is then encased in a bright red box with a little bit of text and a pic of a chilli.
The chocolate is a bit chunkier than your average premium chocolate bar so its quite hard to snap into small chunks.
The first thing you notice is the smell, the chocolate smells very rich, the taste matches it, its quite rich and sweet so not something you could eat loads of, other than that there is just the faintest taste of chilli at the end.
Overall as a chocolate bar it was pretty tasty but as far as the chilli goes it’s not as punchy as some of the other chilli chocolate out there (like lindt chilli or lindt chilli and cherry)
Chilli Up North Verdict: Very rich and chocolatey with a very faint chilli flavour – 6.5/10 (Heat 1/10)
This is a nice simple dish that can be done as a starter or a main, i made it for the first time @ the weekend for the inlaws, it seemed to go down really well so i thought id post it and let you make up your own minds.
As usual the measurements are a bit iffy as i made it up as i went along!
They can be made in advance, up to the breadcrumb stage then kept in the fridge.
