Featured Dark Chocolate Candy Bar: Épicé - Our Spicy Chocolate Bar

We at Sulpice™ Chocolat want to feature one of our most popular dark chocolate bars - Épicé.  This bar is one of my personal favorites as it perfectly balances rich, indulgent dark chocolate with cinnamon and two types of chilis.  The secret behind our super premium chocolate is our use of the best cacao beans available, the criollo and trinitario cacao beans because the best beans make the best chocolate.  These beans make the most decadent chocolate when carefully sweetened with just enough sugar to round out the chocolate's various flavor notes.

Spiced Chocolate Mousse Recipe

My search for the perfect chocolate mousse ended after I discovered this recipe.  It uses Sulpice™ Chocolat's Épicé bar, which is gently spiced with cayenne and chipotle chili peppers and Ceylon cinnamon.  I love the kick that it gives to this chocolate mousse and how it modernizes a french classic.  One of the great things about this recipe is that it is so simple to make and yet it still gives a great impression.  I like to garnish this dessert with a few chocolate shavings for that extra touch.
