News From Chocolate Cravings

Chocolate Cravings is a small, local business. The owner has been selling her chocolate creations... Guinness Brownies any one?... at local farmers markets for perhaps the last two years. She makes all kinds of chocolate barks, chocolate bars, chocolate tarts, brownies, and more. I have tried so many of her creations, but to date my two favorites remain her dark chocolate bar, and her banana curry coconut milk chocolate bark! This last one I got to try when a friend of ours hosted a party, and was so generous as to buy enough bags of all different flavors of the Chocolate Cravings bark as to allow each guest to take two bags home as a party favor.
A few months ago the owner was able to open up her own shop on Lakeside Avenue just across from the site of the Lakeside farmers market. If you haven't checked it out stop in at the upcoming Lakeside holiday shoppers event listed at the bottom of this post. Everyone I know who has attended this Lakeside event in the past couple years has had a really nice time. With samples sure to be handed out, this event may be a great time to try some of the more adventurous creations.

Here are the updates from Chocolate Cravings...
