Mini cupcake decorated with artisan chocolate

Photobucket

There are many artisan chocolate & candy stores in Barcelona. Their quailty generally is very high while the price isn't killing at all. I've just received some dark chocolate coated toasty coffee beans and white chocolate "cups" as a gift.

Something great about the "cups" I want to tell you more... the "cup" is made out of white chocolate, which is more sensitive to the a warmer temperature, but it also means that it will melt in your mouth instantly. The "cup" is filled with mocha cream and topped with hazlnut flavored chocolate "foam". The whole chocolate so rich and creamy makes it also very suitable to pair with cake. So there they are, petit four for tea :)

The chocolate "cups" are available at Salón del Chocolate while the chocolate coffee beans are from Italy.
