Oliver Kita Chocolates? He's been an independent gourmet chocolatier for over 20 years and this year we are honored to include him in our 2012 Halloween Treat Challenge. He sent us an example of one of the five types of "Trickster Treats" you can still get if you hurry for Halloween. But you will have to hurry. For this year's challenge they sent us the Scare-a-mels, buttery caramel with sea salt covered in chocolate with a creepy story to accompany them.
Trickster Treats" are part gourmet chocolate and part art, you can see that just by looking at them. The more fine works are probably best for an adult or an adult Halloween party where their art can be appreciated. The Scare-a-mels are simple and the story is adorable if slightly creepy, just creepy enough to share at a children's Halloween party before you let them have a piece. While I can tell this is a darker chocolate I think the caramel essence is enough to balance that out for children who tend to not like more bitter flavors. Those among our volunteers who normally aren't too fan of dark chocolate really liked this. For craftsmanship and quality, this earns a Sacrament status and is a fine entry into this year's Halloween Treat Challenge.
