Caramelized Onion

This sweet and savory bar combines our El Carmen chocolate with caramelized onions sourced from single origin spice masters Ethan Frisch and Ori Zohar of Burlap & Barrel.   The carefully dried, caramelized onions are refined along with our chocolate in our stone grinders for maximum flavor development.  The intense, melt-in-your mouth onion flavor is umami at it’s best.  It’s truly a unique and supremely satisfying flavor experience!  As with all our bars these are made with cocoa butter we freshly press from the same beans we use to make the bars.

Caramelized Onion Dark Chocolate

Smooth and savory tasting experience. The intense, melt-in-your mouth SWEET onion flavor is incredible and never excessive. It’s truly a unique and supremely satisfying journey. Tasting Notes: Brown sugar, pear, sweet onions, potato chips (onion flavored). The finish is earthy, leaving an extremely pleasant dry mouthfeel. Do not be intimidated by the NAME & the TYPE OF INCLUSION because this chocolate bar is like cherries: once you start savoring it, you just can't stop! It is perfect at the end of a meal and, in particular, with beer and cheese. I truly think Tom & Monica absolutely smacked on this recipe.

This bar is AMAZING. Savoury chocolate is a whole other ballgame. If you’re open to it, I highly recommend you try this bar (assuming you like onion!). Burlap and Barrel, props to you! The onion is so flavourful, sweet and complex. And of course, to Tom and Monica too (you chocolate Dieties : ). Thank you! This bar should totally not be temporary!

Surprisingly delightful

Weird in concept, but actually tastes pretty good.

Unexpected comdo of fried onion and chocolate

I'll be honest, I was a bit afraid of this combo. Chocolate and onion, really? But I was pleasantly surprised with the results. Great chocolate taste with a subtle hint of onion makes a perfect combination
Highly recommend!
