099: A secret ingredient

I was first introduced to chilli chocolate on a trip to Max Brenner while visiting Melbourne a few years ago. I have only stumbled across it a couple of times since, once at the Byron Bay chocolate shop which has now sadly closed down. So I was quite delighted to discover Lindt has this dark chocolate chilli bar out. My little Easter treat to myself, I couldn't go past it. I love the unusual combination of these 2 ingredients. I tried to capture the contrast within the photo and have kept it really simple and uncluttered. Happy Easter everyone. I hope you all enjoy the long weekend!


  1. Good news for you.. you can find Dagoba organic chocolate 'Xocolatl" locally at Biome. It has chillis in it! Also available through their website. I really like the Dagoba Chai choc with ginger. YUM!
