Modica’s chocolate represents one of the most significant agri-food excellences in Sicily. Modica’s chocolate is recognized thanks to the refined scent of spices and to the typical granular consistency. Singular is its working process called “cold” in which only the cocoa butter reaches its melting point, meanwhile sugar crystals give the chocolate its typical granularity. This very yummy version, with almonds and hazelnuts, is for the greediest ones!
Excellent combined with a liqueur wine such as Nero D’Avola, or surprisingly with tequila. It can be enjoyed as a drink, dissolved in water or milk, or as a pudding. Great also in the cappuccino if finely grated.
