A shop that I stopped into (but didn't mention in my last post) when I was in Jiyugaoka was called Chube do Chocolat (not sure what it means but it maybe trying to be French?). They had a big sign outside their shop saying, "melt in your mouth chocolate here"....which made me curious to see what they had.
Most of their chocolates are couverture, which means they can be eaten as is, but are mainly used to be melted and used to make bon-bons, dip fruit in, or cover things like cakes, nuts. It is creamier and has a little gloss.
I bought the 100g package...this place advertises their dark chocolate as bitter(which is what the Japanese call dark chocolate), but I looked on their site and it is only 56%, which I think would make it more like a semi-sweet.
Anyway, I melted it all and mixed in 3 graham crackers (broken up), 5 marshmallows (cut into fourths) and a handful of almonds....
Rocky road? s'mores? rocky s'more?.....whatever you want to call it, it was delicious with coffee in the afternoon.
