Yes, there is such a thing as an "Artisan Chocolate Fair", and yes, it lasts over a week, and yes, it's about a 5 minute walk from my apartment. Talk about dangerous.
Whatever. I'm welcoming this delicious outdoor festival with open arms.
Caroline and I went on Sunday to browse, get as many free samples as possible, and of course, indulge a little.
Here's a few examples of things I've seen (or tried!):
Chocolate shot glasses for a shot of Bailey's
Waffles on Sticks
Truffles and Fudge (Nocciola means "Hazlenut", aka, it takes like Nutella)
I ended up getting a cup of strawberries covered in Italian "Hot Chocolate", essentially chocolate fondue. So, so good.
Andddd I went back today with a couple other friends. I'm pretty sure every five seconds we were asking for a sample, saying "oh my gosh this is so good" or "is there chocolate on my face?"
The answer was always yes.
Moral of the story: If you're here, you should go. If you're not, I feel very, very bad for you.
