Emily had never had white chocolate chili before and several years ago, Ryan made some for her. Recently, we decided to try it again with wild game. The flavor is hearty with a slightly sweet taste from the white chocolate. You cannot necessarily taste chocolate in the flavor, but the slightly sweet taste definitely gives this chili a unique flavor.
