THEO Fresh Sheet : AUGUST

31 July 2012 Theo Chocolate

 

In addition to our regular lineup of bars, caramels, confections and treats, here’s a list of seasonal, limited edition treats for the month of August!

(Unless otherwise noted, all items are available in our retail store only)

CHOCOLATE BARS… CARAMELS… CONFECTIONARY & BOUCHEES… BARK… BRITTLE… NIBS…

 

Confectionary (caramels, ganache, bouchees and more…)

CHERRY FEST CARAMELS: Our buttery caramel infused with cherry juice, these caramels pack intense, lipsmacking fruit (also available online)!

SUMMER CONFECTION BOX: A vibrant, 8-piece collection including the following (also available online):

  • Ganache: Raspberry, Basil, Burnt Sugar, Lemon and Mint
  • Caramel: Cherry Fest, Ghost Chile and Grey Salt Vanilla

BOUCHEES: Our small chocolate-shelled confections that contain various creamy fillings, handmade in very small batches

  • Maple almond praline: Our praline combines pure organic maple syrup, house made almond butter & feuillitine (Feuilletine is French for “crispy flake”) with a pinch of salt. Covered in 45% milk chocolate the center of this confection is ultra creamy, with a bit of shatter & crunch.
  • Vegan coconut-pecan caramels: Organic coconut and almond milks make this unique caramel slightly softer than our norm. Shredded coconut and toasted pecans add texture, all wrapped in a 70% dark chocolate shell.

 

CONFECTIONER’S CHOICE: Small batches & limited availability in our retail store only. With so many talented and creative people on staff, we need an outlet for all the incredible ideas!

……Going fast!

  • KEY LIME PIE: Our team juices and zests piquant key limes, blending them into a custard with sweetened condensed milk, adding white chocolate and table tempering to smooth perfection. We stack a tiny house-made graham crust atop the ganache, enrobe it in dark chocolate and top it with a white chocolate plaque (available July 13th through August 2nd).
  • PEACH RIESLING PATE DU FRUIT: Pate de fruit is a pure fruit jelly, like a larger version of the inside of a jelly bean. We puree ripe, juicy peaches from Tonnamaker Family Orchard in Royal City, WA. We blend in organic Riesling and fresh chopped sage, and cook to the perfect melt-in-your-mouth consistency (available July 16th through August 12th).
  • SESAME SNAP PRALINE: Organic tahini- sweetened with dates and crunchy sesame brittle is blended into smooth dark chocolate for a sweet-savory treat reminiscent of the popular Asian candy (available August 3rd through 23rd).
  • BLUEBERRY LAVENDER PATE DU FRUIT: Pate de fruit is a pure fruit jelly, like a larger version of the inside of a jelly bean. We make ours from fresh picked organic blueberries from Hayton Farms and local lavender, and then roll the pieces in sugar (available August 13th through September 13th).
  • WALLA WALLA SWEET ONION caramel: You may wait all summer to grill these special sweet onions, but we caramelize ours! Sweet onions, beautifully burnished, meld perfectly with buttery sweet caramel. Decorated with a stripe of caramelized white chocolate and a pinch of salt and pepper (available August 24th through September 13th).
