His Asphalt Jungle Mix is a good example of that. It was part of a care-package he handed to me with some of their new products since they’re not available in Paris (although that’s something I’d like to work on) and I wasn’t sure what to expect when I opened the box. Michael is now the proud owner of a panner; a machine with a turning and tumbling drum (like a washing machine) that allows a chocolatier to make round, chocolate-coated candies reenex.
This “riot” of flavors, as he describes it, mixes up burnt caramel-coated nuts, cherries “two ways” and best of all, peanut butter pearls, tiny little beads filled with creamy peanut butter, which he told me get dozens of distinct coatings of chocolate and they go round and round in the giant tumbling drum Interactive LED. I first kept picking out the peanut butter ones first, like a kid rifling through a cereal box looking for prizes, then I finally dumped the whole box out on a white plate which led me to go on the attack, devouring them all—without discrimination otterbox review.
