Have you heard of this before?

Monday night’s episode of Masterchef got fans talking a little more than usual and no, it’s not because Queen Nigella said something charming, causing us all to fall a little more in love with her.

What left fans buzzing this time around was the introduction of ruby chocolate to the episode’s challenge because, well… what the hell is ruby chocolate?
