Modica Chocolate with Orange Peels
Giannetti Artisans Modica Chocolate with Orange Peels is an excellent niche Chocolate from Sicily!
The small Italian town of Modica in Sicily is famous for their unique chocolate. In Modica they use the traditional recipe from the Aztecs. However, they have kept it crunchy rather than the smooth chocolate that we know. They have adapted the recipe a little bit for our taste buds by adding brown sugar to make it even more delicious for us.
The secret behind the Modican chocolate is that it has very little cocoa butter and no white sugar instead they use granulated brown sugar that you can see and taste in ever bite! Since there is very little cocoa butter, the best thing is that it doesn’t melt.
The cocoa beans are collected all together and then they are roasted to bring out the best flavor. Those roasted beans are then crushed and the cocoa butter is taken out of them. After this process, it is time to finally make the paste by heating up the crushed beans and adding different ingredients to it; the granulated sugar, the cocoa butter that was separated, and finally the flavoring for a different tastes.
After the paste is made, it is poured into the metallic molds shaped like a rectangle with four boxes. So if you want to eat chocolate and not feel bad about eating it, then eat chocolate di Modica. If you want to do as they did in the past, you can even drink the chocolate to keep yourself warm during winter.
