If you’re feeling bold, try baking these squares into a batch of fudge brownies.

Birchbox Breakdown

If milk chocolate is the confectionery equivalent of the waltz, then intense dark chocolate is most certainly the tango. Throw in some tart cherry pieces and crunchy roasted almonds, and we’re ready to put on our dancing shoes. These melt-in-your-mouth treats from Ghirardelli’s Intense Dark collection make for a deeply satisfying, yet unexpected tasting experience. We love the contrast between the velvety dark chocolate and the crunchy-tart filling. Bonus: the individually wrapped squares come in at only 50 calories apiece.

How to Use

Unwrap. Place on tongue. Experience delight.

Semi-sweet chocolate (sugar, unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter, milk fat, soy lecithin- an emulsifier, vanilla), almonds, freeze dried cherries, natural flavors.

Tastes like chocolate cough syrup

I love dark chocolate and I love (actual) cherries, but I couldn't even finish this small square. To be fair, I'm not a big fan of chocolate + fruit, but this tasted like cherry Robitussin with a chocolate side.

Flavorful

This chocolate was very tart and sweet at the same time, a nice combination. The almonds gave it a nice crunchy texture as well. I would buy in stores.

CHOCOLATE!

Who doesn't love chocolate! Wonderful surprise in my birchbox! Rich flavors of the cherry complement the chocolate well, or maybe it is the other way around. However, it is delicious!

it's chocolate. so that guarantees at least 3-4 stars. The cherry and almond bits and texture and flavor. Perfect to satisfy a chocolate craving and not consume too many calories. Definitely 5 star worthy chocolate.

This was a great find in my March Birchbox. The dark chocolate was nice and the cheer just topped it off.

Hmm...

Not a fan. Honestly, it tasted like chocolate covered cough syrup. Some people might like that, but not me!
