There's gold in them thar hills....well, maybe not gold, but there certainly is a little culinary treasure.
May I present
Can you say "Out of this World" good?
I have had some of the best chocolate the world has to offer. I have also had some of the worst. I have had chocolate from Jacques Torres, who, quite frankly, is the MASTER. With that being said, Chubby Chipmunk is a solid apprentice. Whoever runs the show KNOWS how to temper correctly, KNOWS how to, with exactness, combine flavor combinations perfectly and KNOWS that appearance can go a long way.
The truffles were absolutely perfect...creamy with a shell that was slightly firm. My favorite? Probably the Deadwood Toffee or the Espresso. But as you can tell, I obviously have enjoyed a few of the flavors.
And the mistake? Well, supposedly they made it mistake trying out a new caramel recipe. They made a caramel, added a little bit of Hawaiian Pink Salt, covered it with dark chocolate, and topped it with a touch more salt. So not a mistake. To die for...and I will be ordering more this week! I ate them so fast I couldn't take a picture...sorry. And yes, chocolate does make the world a better place.
