Calling all chocolate and orange lovers!
Il Colle del Gusto’s Chocolate Orange Spread is a sumptuous combination of bittersweet chocolate, Italian hazelnuts, candied orange peel and a touch of orange extract. This luscious spread is made with Italian extra virgin olive oil giving it a silky, velvety texture in addition to its out-of-this-world taste.
Il Colle del Gusto’s Cioccoarancia is stunning simply slathered on a piece of warm toasted bread or brioche . . . or let's be honest, straight out of the jar. But if you can put down the spoon, it is an amazing addition to both baking and sweet preparations. Also try it drizzled over pancakes, waffles or French toast. Spoon it over scoops of gelato and use it in tarts.
A baker's essential, use Cioccoarancia instead of jam to make out-of-this-world thumbprint cookies, swirl into vanilla gelato or combine with mascarpone cheese and beat until smooth for a creamy chocolate orange cake filling.
For the adults, indulge in a grown-up milkshake—blend vanilla ice cream, a couple spoonfuls of this oh-so-delish chocolate orange spread and Gran Marnier until smooth and pour into a frosty glass.

ABOUT IL COLLE GUSTO
When they met, Antonio della Corte was creating sweet sauces for gelaterie and pastry shops and Anna Maria Conti was running a farm and bed-and-breakfast. The two combined their talents (they're partners in life as well), to create Il Colle Gusto, producing a line of spreads made with Anna Maria’s own extra virgin olive oil and nuts grown on friends’ farms.
They started selling their incredible nut spreads from a cart with a yellow umbrella at the famers' market in Rieti, just outside of Rome, and as they say, the rest is history. And, we are very happy to bring them to you today!
