Dark Chocolate + Toffee PistachiosMADE BY CLIF FAMILY KITCHEN IN ST. HELENA, CALIFORNIA
REAL SIMPLE SAYS...
"If you’ve outgrown peanut M&Ms, try this sophisticated alternative: it’s the perfect snack for every bitter chocolate lover out there."
Leave it to a winery in dreamy Napa Valley to concoct heavenly, chocolate-covered sweets that pair perfectly with final sips of Cabernet and lingering conversation. Their attractive tin digs keep things neat – no melty chocolate fingers to mussy wine glasses, or let’s be honest, computer keyboards, since these morsels are also top desk drawer material.
Looking like a million bucks in their green-topped tin, toasty California pistachios get a crackly toffee topping before being generously enrobed in dark chocolate. Talk about the VIP treatment.
TIP OF THE TONGUE
Italians know a thing or two about pistachios too, so we think Barbera – a lush, low-tannin Italian-born varietal – alongside these would make one tasty match.
