Askinosie Chocolate has launched its latest confection creation: chocolate covered malt balls. The team at Askinosie creates these chocolate covered malt balls using an eight hour, a multi-step process. Melted single origin chocolate (made with cocoa beans the company sources directly from a female-led farmer group in rural Tanzania) is hand ladled over rich malt balls. The chocolate covered malt balls are so special that the small Askinosie factory of 16 employees added a weekend shift dedicated to their creation. Shawn Askinosie, Founder and CEO of Askinosie Chocolate recalls, “I was inspired to make these because it’s my wife Caron’s favorite candy. We’re the first craft chocolate makers that I know of, who are producing them! They’re basically an artisanal Whopper. We’ve spent the last 14 months perfecting the process and the recipe. We couldn’t be more excited with the results.” To retail Askinosie Chocolate Covered Malt Balls, go to www.askinosie.com.
