As part of the celebration of Maine Sea Weed Week, Bixby Chocolate has created two unique sea weed chocolate bon bons that are sure to please even the most discerning chocolate lover.
The first of these sea weed chocolate bon bons a Maine Dulse Bon Bonis made with a locally harvested dulse sea weed and fresh lemon zest. Dulse is a red algae that grows along the rocky coastline of Maine and is prized for its salty, umami flavor. The addition of fresh lemon zest to the ganache adds a bright and refreshing twist to this decadent treat. The combination of the rich, dark chocolate with the salty, white chocolate citrusy flavors of the dulse and lemon create a truly unique taste experience that is both satisfying and delicious.
The second sea weed chocolate bon bon is the Maine Kelp Bon Bonis made with a milk chocolate shell filled with a ganache made from locally harvested kelp sea weed. Kelp is a type of brown algae that is abundant along the coast of Maine and is known for its health benefits. The kelp ganache is creamy and slightly salty, with a delicate sweetness that complements the rich milk chocolate shell. This combination of flavors creates a luxurious and indulgent treat that is perfect for any chocolate lover.
