Recently Tiara from Honey Acres, Inc. reached out to me to try their chocolate line. She shared with me that they are made with 100% Dark Chocolate and Raw Honey. They are gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and no added sugar. Being dairy free as well as gluten free can be hard sometimes because very few chocolates don’t incorporate milk into their recipe.
When the chocolate’s arrived they were also accompanied by other honey products I did not know even existed and some honey straws.
The first thing I did was try out the Cinnamon creme by sauteing some local pecans from Front Porch Pickings and then adding to a yummy King Arthur Flour banana bread mix. It was so yummy and a great recipe for the holidays.
I then tried the chocolates which are delicious! The dark chocolate taste is not too over powering and I just loved the creamy centers. The dark chocolate mint was my favorite and the dark chocolate cocoa was my second favorite.
Some other things I plan to do with these yummy honey products:
- Put some in my morning smoothie to naturally sweeten it up
- Add it to my morning hot tea
- Use it on pancakes like this suggested recipe
Currently their products are not available in the Jacksonville area but to see changes and updates to locations view their store locator. I hope they come soon because I am going to be craving these chocolates!
