A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of both meeting Ailey Mae and also the delight of tasting Ailey Mae's Raw Chocolate. As well as being delicious, each bar of chocolate has a high cocoa content of 70% Peruvian cocoa. I was very excited to learn this, as one of my favourite travel destinations so far is Peru!
Cusco Coco Museum
During my visit to Peru I had the opportunity to visit the Choco Museum just off the main square, Cusco. It has a wealth of knowledge on chocolate and provides delicious chocolate making workshops.

Ailey Mae's Raw Chocolate
Ailey Mae's handcrafted Raw Chocolate was born in 2012 just outside of Edinburgh in the East Lothian seaside town of North Berwick. The cocoa is grown and locally quality sourced in Peru. There are a number of flavours and limited edition bars/truffles available, including Peruvian chocolate with chunks of mango, roasted hazelnuts, raspberry & salted caramel and coconut, cardamom & lime. They are just too delicious to be healthy! Ideal gifts for all your family, friends and are also suitable for vegans, gluten free and dairy free too.
Ailey Mae's Raw Chocolate with Chunks of Mango
If you love mango and chocolate, you will love it. Moist, sweet and bursting with flavour. If it starts to melt, put it in the fridge and enjoy chilled. Yum!
Ailey Mae's Raw Chocolate with Roasted Hazelnuts
Another delicious recipe from Ailey Mae, with real hazelnuts!
Ailey Mae's Raw Chocolate with Raspberry and Salted Caramel
The salty caramel and sweet raspberry works really well together. With each bite, you get both taste sensations of the sweet and the salty. The bar has an abundance of these great ingredients, so you can enjoy every mouth full.
Ailey Mae's Raw Chocolate with Coconut, Cardamom and Lime
Out of all the bars mentioned above, this is my all time favourite! I love the fresh, cool taste of the coconut, cardamom and lime mixed together with the smooth creamy dark chocolate. I wonder if this would count as one of your five a day? ha ha.
I hope I have inspired you to try one of Ailey Mae's delicious raw chocolate bars today. For more information on chocolate package bundles and stockists visit Ailey Mae's Raw Chocolate on Facebook and Website.
