I get a lot of chocolate to sample, so it is rare that I finish a bar myself. So the fact that I ate the entire Michel Cluizel Eclats Caramel Beurre Sale myself means that it is darn good.
This bar is a salted milk chocolate with crunchy bits of butter caramel — more commonly called toffee in the US. The milk chocolate is creamy and contrasts well with the wonderful crunch of the caramel bits. The salt is light-handed, brightening the flavor without making it taste salty.
While the bar I was sent by Michel Cluizel arrived a bit broken up, the chocolate was beautifully tempered.
This is a delicious bar which I could not resist — sneaking a square here and there over the past few days until it was gone. Find out more at the Michel Cluizel website.
