Cacao Barry Chocolate Pie


Summer doesn’t have to be all about fruit pies.  

The chocolate geniuses at Cacao Barry have put together this dream of a chocolate pie featuring three different chocolates from their incredible selection:  ALUNGA™ is slightly sweet milk chocolate with a dominant taste of cocoa and milk.  OCOA™ is a distinctive dark chocolate with good cocoa taste and a hint of acidity, with their Extra Brute™ cacao powder, bringing intense colour to the mix.  

Serves 4-6
