I’ve been meaning to try this since I spotted the ‘cold poached chocolate’ sign that Awfully Chocolate on Stanley St has on their glass window. It’s in front of a stainless steel bench top which is where I can only imagine the magic happens.
Only available at set times of the day, the poached chocolates come in various flavours and today’s choice were Kahlua, cointreau and whiskey. We decided to get the Kahlua one given my caffeine craving (and both the serving ladies said that it was their favourite) and the whipped cream in the shape of a lady with orange beads was selected in honour of the recent mothers day.
There was no holding us back – the chocolate was so incredibly smooth, light, yet rich and dark… The whipped cream balanced the richness nicely and I could hear the ladies behind the counter giggling as we passionately savoured every bite of the chocolate mound. A-mazing.
