Exotic chocolate blends are pretty hot right now and I love to come up with exciting combinations. I've always loved slightly salty chocolate and was looking for a spice to complement my favorite Himalayan salt–and to offer a bright contrasting color. The pink peppercorn was perfect! It's actually a berry–a bit sweeter than black pepper, but still spicy with hints of citrus. The raw chocolate truffle base here is ultra simple, so feel free to get creative and mix up your own favorite flavors.
