What a whimsical product! A semi-sweet chocolate covered truffle in an olive shape, with its own little adorable skewer. If I were a bartender I’d jump on these in a flash.
As for the truffle itself, it is perfectly good but not extraordinary. It doesn’t have to be. The whole idea is captivating. There are accompanying recipes for a cholivtini and a chocolate malt martini; both sound divine. If you’re into making martinis at home this takes them up a notch, and your chocoholic friends will be blown away.
If you’re bored with the traditional Valentine’s Day gift of chocolates in a heart-shaped box, surprise your Sweetie with a tin of Cholives. You’ll certainly get points for creativity, and the chocolate part makes them a safe bet. Find them at http://www.thecholive.com
