Nat took a classic European (Ok, English) candy and redesigned it with Thai flavors. She figured since sweet, salt and spicy works for Thai food - then why wouldn't it work in a confection?
Well, it does. Fresh toasted kaffir lime leaf, coconut flakes, peanuts and chili are generously pressed into a peanut heavy buttercrunch slabbed with XN65, Nat's own in-house 65% dark chocolate couverture made with Thai cacao.
Nat's watched many dubious faces turn into delight after tasting the Phed Nit Noi Xoco Crunch -- which is one of her favorite things, turning doubters into believers that Thai flavors really do work well with chocolate.
Ingredients: Dark chocolate made with Thai cacao (65% cacao soilids, cocoa butter, sugar), peanuts, coconut, chillis, kaffir lime leaves, sugar, butter, baking soda, salt, vanilla extract.
