This week a couple of recipes from Choclatique—150 Simply Elegant Desserts were named by Jennifer Jeanne Patterson, reporter for MORE.com, as two of the Best Chocolate Recipes Ever! Now this was in an article where renowned chocolatiers and pastry chefs shared their favorite dessert, candy and drinks recipes. The two she loved from Choclatique were Faultless Chocolate Soufflé and Bittersweet Chocolate Tart. It just so happens that these are a two of my favorites as well. Aside from the recipes there were several other interesting desserts that I will be making and tasting over the weekend. You can read all about it here.
Martha Stewart also had great things to say about Choclatique—the chocolate on her Bride’s Guide. We are always pleased when Choclatique is recognized for our fine work in both our recipes and in our chocolate products.
As we get closer to June and wedding season we have found that many brides and grooms are adding a beautiful chocolate table to their guest offerings. Why not be the first in your area to consider building a chocolate table?
Chocolate tables can be as simple as layers and layers of small traditional or personalized truffles, giant centerpieces or even a chocolate fountain that brings chocolate fondue to a higher, more participatory level. Chocolate tables are something that everyone always remembers. Don’t wait until the last minute… start thinking about a chocolate wedding today.
And if you didn’t already suspect it, more proposals for marriage are made on Valentine’s Day than any other time of the year. If you’re already thinking of something to give your honey for Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with chocolate.
Here are a few new things to ponder from Choclatique; they won’t disappoint even the most jaded chocolate aficionado. Think about these for both your betrothed and your future wedding guests. You can use our “Build-A-Box” website tool to pick whatever chocolates you want from over 150 choices to fill an 8-, 15- or 30-piece box. Another fun option is a Choclatique SweeTweet, which allows you to spell out a phrase of your choosing. How about something like “I love you… marry me!”? Of course, there are always our beautiful Love assortments—the most beautiful and decadent chocolate hearts in the world.
It’s almost February and love is definitely in the air. Think chocolate!
