McDaniel and a representative from Remy Martin, a French firm that produces cognac, plan to offer a white, milk, and dark chocolate to complement three liqueurs: Remy Martin 1738, Cointreau, and Cointreau Noir.
Two examples of McDaniel’s creations include The Earl (milk chocolate infused with Earl Grey tea and honey, dipped into dark chocolate and topped with candied lemon peel and lemon salt) and The Scheherazade (milk chocolate infused with orange and cardamom and rolled in pistachio dust). Those two are her personal favorites. McDaniel only uses fair-trade and organic chocolate, which she says was a top priority when beginning her business. “It was important to me, especially with fair-trade, that the farmers get a living wage and that the companies take care of them,” she says.
