Salted Chocolate Crunch BarMADE BY CHUAO CHOCOLATIER IN CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA
A salty twist on your favorite crunch bar—this one is made with 60% dark chocolate and crispy bread crumbs scattered throughout. –Tina Ujlaki, Executive Food Editor, Food & Wine Magazine
Think of this as a chocolate croissant in reverse: Melty, rich chocolate with salty, caramelized, buttery crumbs that taste like that well-browned top layer of the pastry we love to peel off and eat by itself.
We also love the way the sweetness of the chocolate is offset by the savory, salty flavor of the panko breadcrumbs. This is one bar that we have trouble not devouring in one sitting.
