What’s a cholive? It’s like what it sounds…a chocolate olive. Not a chocolate covered olive but a chocolate olive, a cocktail chocolate that pairs well with cocktails or coffee laced with liquors and spirits. Cholives are a bit decadent but then again most really good chocolate is.
Cholives are made with 55 percent Swiss dark chocolate filled with smooth Vermont whole cream ganache. Every Cholive comes with a skewer to hang on your martini or classic cocktail.
The Cholive Co. also makes Chruffles based on 55 percent Swiss dark chocolate formula with whole cream ganache in 16 different flavors. Chruffles pair well with wine for a fun party. By slowly letting the shell and ganache melt in your mouth, you can pick up amazing nuances in wine that only chocolate can bring out.
Disclosure: The Cholive Co. sent me the samples and they were simply divine.
