For a few weeks, the world stood still. And we, like so many others, had to shut down our chocolate factory. During that time I decided to visit the test lab, a place where I have spent a lot of time over the course of the past seven years and I decided to play around with the ingredients we already had on hand. The result is the birth of an irresistible chocolate bar.
I decided on 70% cocoa beans from Tanzania for this bar. The Tanzania beans are naturally sweet and fruity with hints of stone fruit and bananas, which is perfect for this particular bar.
To give them an extra flair, I sprinkled our roasted almonds bathed in Westfjords seawater on top along with our popped barley from the East Coast of Iceland. To give it that extra crispiness, I also sprinkled some cocoa nibs on top. Now we’re talking! And for the icing on the cake, I added cranberries into the mix to give it an extra sweet and soft tart flavour.
The final product is a cross country chocolate bar, with a flavour to match!
SuperChocoBerryBarleyNibblyNuttylicious (try saying that 10 times fast!) is truly a superfood. Silky smooth 70% dark chocolate topped with almonds, cocoa nibs, cranberries and popped barley. This bar will be your new favourite travel partner for the summer.
It’s our take on trail mix or a breakfast bar, chock full of good energy for your hike, camping trip or your road trip around Iceland.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do,
