You, more than anyone know how much I love Indian-inspired desserts. When the lovely guys at Devnaa sent me a box of their spice-infused chocolates, I couldn’t wait to get stuck in. Cinnamon-laced dark chocolate, chocolate burfi and cardamom truffles sent me into a very welcome sugar coma.
The first thing I noticed was the beautiful packaging. Deep purple and orange mendhi-inspired patterns, crepe paper and gold emboss – this beautiful box of chocs felt like it was created especially for me and my passion for fusion flavours.
The caramels were by far my favourite. And they weren’t just any caramels – they were silky smooth and full of rich, buttery flavours. I’d devour an entire box of these, without a doubt.
Another delicious surprise was the dark chocolate, cardamom and coconut number. With one little corner dipped in desiccated coconut, the coconut flavour wasn’t overpowered by the cardamom flavour which I was at first sceptical about.
Other flavours included strawberry burfi covered in white chocolate, chai masala milk chocolate, crunchy cinnamon praline, saffron and ginger fudge and a really lovely Turkish delight (I’m a sucker for Turkish delight). I’m sorry to say I ate this whole box of chocolates by myself. I’m not even ashamed.
Huge thanks to all at Devnaa. Order your chocolate tiffin box here. And don’t forget my caramels!
P.S. I’ve just come back from an amazing trip to Paris (during I was constantly eating – no word of a lie) but will be back with a recipe in the next couple of days.
