Modica is a beautiful chocolate town. There is a museum there, but it was closed when we visited. So instead we went to a chocolate café for hot chocolate with whipped cream. It wasn’t as good as Florence, but it was till good. Daddy had a Moroccan coffee (which had spices and chocolate in it) and Mummy had a baroque coffee (which was coffee with cinnamon and citrus), they were very small and strong.
There was no lunch at the café (only lots of chocolate!), so we went to a bakery, I got a delicious ball of rice, called Arancini. It had some filling and was covered in breadcrumbs and fried.
Next we went to some chocolate shops we go to do taste tests. My favourites were the Trapani salt one and the Jasmine blossom one.
Modica chocolate is crunchy and grainy. It is made a special way so the sugar doesn’t melt. It is dairy free and mostly just has chocolate, sugar and flavour in it. It is yummy, but different to normal chocolate. The recipe came to Sicily a long time ago from the Aztecs in South America.
