Hedonist Artisan Chocolates
Hedonist Artisan Chocolates specializes in handcrafting a wide variety of sweet delights, hewn from French chocolate and all-natural ingredients. Saunter in to the shop while clad in a wide apron for gathering truffles, which run the gamut from five goat-cheese truffles ($12) of black currant, chile cinnamon, and more, to 10 classic truffles ($20), flavored in hints of espresso, hazelnut, and white mint. The goat-cheese truffles are made with goat cheese from the local Lively Run Goat Dairy. A relaxing cup of lavender-and-lemongrass drinking chocolate ($6.50 for a two-ounce packet), mingled with vanilla and white chocolate, melts Jack Frost's cold heart on a snowy summer's day, while the pistachio ginger bark ($10 for a five-ounce bag), semi-sweet chocolate shards sprinkled with salt, tingles the tongue with an offbeat mouthful of deliciousness. Silence the moans of your sweet tooth with the treats of Hedonist Artisan Chocolates.
