Celebrate Chinese New Year With The Year of The Rooster Chocolate Art Collections

 

Wild Sweets® By Dominique & Cindy Duby Releases Limited Edition ‘Year of the Rooster’ Chocolate Art Collections for 2017 Chinese New Year Celebration!

It’s superb to live in a city where we have so many reasons to celebrate, and many friends from diverse cultures to celebrate alongside of. I missed out on my usual Ukrainian Christmas Celebration this year, and am entirely short on perogies and cabbage rolls, but I will not miss out on Chinese New Year! I’ve already been fortunate enough to attend a dim sum celebration (more on that soon) and now I’m going to spoil a few friends with something sweeter, the chocolate collections from DC Duby.

Year of The Rooster Chocolate Art Collections

Quality chocolates, made with natural ingredients, are pretty much health food, don’t you think? It’s worth a little splurge on calories for these though as the 2017 Limited Edition Chocolate Art ‘Year of the Rooster’ Gift Collections are absolutely gorgeous and full of beautiful flavours. The first set, the ‘Year of the Rooster’ Chocolate Art Collection features a soft ganache made with different fruit-based liquid caramels. They are beautifully hand-painted with cocoa butter colours scheme in different artistic patterns. The Wild Sweets® ‘Year of the Rooster’ Collection is sold in gift boxes of 12-units and features the following assortment of flavours:

Year of The Rooster Chocolate Art Collections

  • Chestnut Vanilla Bean Caramel Ganache & Organic roasted chestnuts
  • Pomelo Fruit Caramel Ganache & Ginger Lemon Honey Nut Cream
  • Apricot Vanilla Bean Caramel Ganache & Cubed Sticky Rice Cake
  • Kumquat Orange Caramel Ganache & Citrus Honey Nut Cream

The other collection is even more special (well I think so). The Wild Sweets® ‘Year of the Rooster’ Chocolate Art ‘Bouchée’ Series is reminiscent of a cake for its symbolism of ‘rising fortune’ and features 3 textural elements including; a ‘dough’ component in the form of a buttery French ‘Sablé Breton’ cookie, a baked caramel nut jam made with different nuts & seeds, and a soft ganache made with fruit-based liquid caramels. The Bouchées are enrobed in chocolate and decorated with a disc of almond paste ‘printed’ with a rooster head design and hand-painted with ‘sparkling’ cocoa butter colours. The Wild Sweets® ‘Year of the Rooster’ Bouchée Series is sold in gift box sleeves of 4-units and features the following assortment of flavours:

Year of The Rooster Chocolate Art Collections

  • Lychee Longan Caramel Ganache, Sablé cookie & Black Sesame Nut Jam
  • Mandarin Orange Caramel Ganache,  Sablé cookie & Coconut Nut Jam
  • Peach Persimmon Caramel Ganache, Sablé cookie & Almond Nut Jam
  • Mango Green Tea Caramel Ganache, Sablé cookie & Peanut Nut Jam

I am currently trying not to devour these before I meet up with my friends to share them. I advise you buy a set for yourself too.
