Just bought the Firecracker as a gift for my wife at REI... and she loved it (so much that I decided to blog about it)! Cheers.

A chocolate a day keeps the Dr. away;)
 
An ode to one of my favorite weekday chocolate bars: +Chuao Chocolatier's Firecracker Bar 
I make no excuses for my daily Dr. Chocolate ritual (cheaper than actual therapy - I'd say!) or for my eccentric tastes in chocolate. One of my recurring unusual obsessions are chili-infused dark chocolate bars; I absolutely ...

Introduction

Chuao Chocolatier (pronounced chew-WOW) is the first Venezuelan Chocolatier based in the United States and Southern California’s premier artisan chocolatier.

Founded in 2002 by Master Chef Michael Antonorsi, Chuao Chocolatier is on a mission to spread joy to all by arousing the senses with delicious chocolate experiences.

The Venezuelan born chef, now San Diego resident, named the company Chuao Chocolatier after the legendary cacao-producing region of Chuao (pronounced chew-WOW) located in central Venezuela. Antonorsi’s decision was a reflection of their commitment to both high quality and their Venezuelan family heritage. Chocolate is part of Chef Michael’s roots, with ancestors who once ran a small family farm that was an important part of the criollo cacao plantation industry.

Initially, the company started with a single boutique in Encinitas, CA featuring a one-of-a-kind confectionary menu of chocolate barsbonbons, truffles and drinking chocolate. Their signature flavor was Spicy Maya, a modern twist on the Mayan’s ancient drinking chocolate recipe, infused with cinnamon, pasilla chile and cayenne pepper. The Spicy Maya flavor has since extended across all of Chuao’s product lines.

Creative flavor combinations are at the heart of Chuao Chocolatier’s decadent chocolate experience including: Firecracker, a chipotle caramel fudge truffle with popping candy, a hint of salt, and dark chocolate and Pan Con Chocolate, a dark chocolate bonbon filled with toasted Panko bread crumbs, olive oil ganache with a touch of sea salt.

"Creative flavor combinations are at the heart of Chuao Chocolatier’s decadent chocolate experience…"

Chuao Chocolatier has expanded the menu to include numerous drinking chocolate and espresso beverages, gelatos and seasonal creations. They now own and operate two chocolate cafes in San Diego county.

Today, you can discover Chuao Chocolatier across the United States at fine specialty retailers including Whole Foods Market, Dean and Deluca, and Crate & Barrel, as well as fine restaurants & hotels including Omni Hotels and W Hotels nationwide.
