Ways to enhance chocolate?

I recently learned that I could add a touch of licorice to chocolate to enhance its flavor.
Are there tricks or tips that you have to enhance the flavor and/or texture of chocolate for baking, cooking, etc.?
Salt. Any chocolate recipe should contain a little salt to bring out the chocolate flavor fully.
Vanilla, of course, is a natural (and almost always) necessary counterpart. Fruits are great for their acidity. Nuts, cacao nibs, espresso nibs, etc. provide a nice contrast to the smoothness of the chocolate.
