Chocolate Bliss

I went to a wonderful event tonight - chocolate, tea, massages and relaxation. Theo Chocolates hosted this wonderful night of indulgence. They had about 15 different kinds of hard chocolate samples, plus all their delicious caramels out for tasting.

Theo has unusual varieties of chocolate - coconut curry, fig and almond, lavender jalapeƱo, lime coriander, plus the usual varieties of dark chocolates, vanilla bean, and peanut butter. Stef - any interest in designing a cupcake using a coconut curry chocolate bar?

A local Ayurvedic massage center was offering free hand massages, and PCC Market had fair trade herbal teas and locally brewed beers for sampling.

I met a couple of girlfriends there, and we really enjoyed ourselves. Of course, I had to buy a few chocolates. I got the 3400 Phinney Fantasy Flavor Flights - 6 of their popular 3400 Phinney bars- plus a few caramels and some chocolate body scrub. All in all, an amazingly relaxing evening.

Sounds like a fantastic eve. I've actaully already made a cupcake based on a coconut curry chocolate bar: .

It was one of my really early cupcakes. Weird reading over the post just now. I should probably rewrite it in my current style sometime.
