Turns out we aren’t the only ones who think cheese and chocolate have serious chemistry. Several chocolate makers (and even some cheesemakers) have capitalized on this flavor combo, crafting products that highlight the love connection between the two ingredients.
Lillie Belle Farms’ Smokey Blue Truffles enrobe Rogue Creamery blue and toasted Almonds in milky sweet chocolate.
Rogue Creamery’s Cacow Belle Cheddar gets its lacey marbling from Lillie Belle chocolate.
Yellow Door Creamery Mayan Cocoa Coffee Fontina is hand-rubbed with ground cocoa, coffee, and spices.
Vella Dry Jack gets rubbed with cocoa and olive oil to achieve its leathery sheen.
Westfield Farm’s Chocolate Capri Log is a chèvre that walks the line between fudge and cheese.
