Belize's Single Origin Spreadable Dark Chocolate
Dragonella was born out of the miracle of making mistakes. What was planned to be a well-tempered hatch of dark chocolate bars, resulted in a *not* well-tempered, mountain of unpackable chocolate. Tempering is one of the processes that makes chocolate the complex substance that it is. It ensures good structure and stability for an otherwise molten, traveling liquid. It's what allows you to pick up a bar of chocolate, snap a piece off of it and land it into your mouth. So even though we were presented with an unforeseen problem, we made way for a miraculous solution.
Like all of our crafts, the Cacao in this product comes from 1 single farmer dedicated to regenerative farming practices in the Toledo district of Belize.
5 simple ingredients - cacao, nuts, cane sugar, sunflower oil, sea salt
FAT, FAT , FAT!
A few things to note...
Let's re-frame our outlook on fat. It's not all bad. Inside our yummy jars of spread is a complex world of wonderful healthy fats found in both the Cacao as well as the nuts. Their ability to remain liquid at room temperature is what allows us to enjoy Dragonella as a chocolate spread. Like other nut butters, sseparation can occur. Let's take a look at what that looks like and how you can still enjoy your spread in case this were to happen.
If your spread looks like this...
Don't fret, don't fuss! It's just fat, you see.
This is the oil (or fat) from the Cacao that has settled to the top of the spread and begun to solidify.
Remember what Cacao Butter looks like?
