Chocolate! Yes, it’s my favorite food and a regular topic of my blogs. I had more than my share of chocolate (and caramel) at the 6th Annual Chocolate Salon in Santa Monica on Sunday. This is also where I had my best bite of the week. I discovered a company called Droga Confections that had not only delicious chocolates but the cutest packaging and really clever names for their sweet bites. My favorite bite was…Put Your Money on Honey Caramels. These bites consisted of luscious caramel (made with honey!) drenched in dark chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt. I went by their table at least 5 times and snuck a few pieces home for Matt. And let’s be honest, there’s a piece in the kitchen now calling my name.
Their other samples deserve a mention too…Peppermint Peppies, Gingerbread Chookies and Rebel Rocky Road, which was the impetus for the company’s founding! But don’t forget…Put Your Money on Honey Caramels!
