I just love the presentation of the chocolates that were kindly sent to me by Cowgirl Chocolates. It is so beautiful, it looks like a jewelry box, wrapped in ribbon with a western style cowgirl boot pin! Very sophisticated and tasteful! I really admire that!
The chocolates inside included nine fancy handmade truffles. There are no additives and preservatives in her chocolate. The flavors range from mild to spicy. I enjoyed the spicy kick to them, it was a unique treat. Everyone in my family tried a piece and they were all impressed. The spicy caramels were quite a surprise! I ate it in one bite and in a couple of seconds, my mouth was practically on fire. Not too overpowering, however! I would love to try the caramel sauce next time! When you are eating them, just in case you have a low tolerance to spicy foods, there is a color-coded flavor guide that is supplied with the chocolates. This is so there are no surprises.
Also included in my shipment was a catalog for future orders. Other products include spicy truffles, Nothin' Fancy Daisies chocolates, Chipotle or Habanero caramels, hot caramel sauce, peanut brittle and solid chocolate bars. Some of the products come with a reusable tin. The chocolate bars I would love to try include the mild sarsaparilla, mild lavender dark, and the mild lemonade white chocolate.
