What You'll Get
Chocolates make a better dessert than cake: they're smaller and more flavorful, and they never surprise snackers by concealing an entire person. Today's Groupon is chock-full of shock-free fare: for $13, you get $26 worth of truffles and chocolates from CocoAndrè on West Davis Street.
CocoAndrè handcrafts 100% cocoa butter-based raw chocolate into European-style truffles and whimsical molds. Truffles span more than 20 flavors and, like engagement rings, come in packs of two ($3), four ($6), eight ($12), 16 ($24), or 32 ($48). Caffeine cravers can dig into a turkish-coffee-infused truffle, and Francophiles can feast on a french-vanilla truffle. The strawberry-passion fruit piece encloses fruity overtones in a chocolate dome topped with a crystalline crown of sugar. CocoAndré also stocks its shelves with specialty molds shaped like playful mustache lollies ($2.50 each) and miniature states of Texas ($1.75)—ideal for tricking finicky geographers into eating dessert.

About [[m:#### Cocoandré Chocolatier
In Mexico, life’s milestones are inextricably linked to chocolate. And Andrea Pedraza will never forget sipping her first mug of delicious hot chocolate on the morning of her first communion.
Her early memories of chocolate blossomed into a lifelong obsession. Now, at Cocoandré Chocolatier, Ms. Pedraza strives to match the purity of that first mug. She imports 100% natural, cocoa-butter-based raw chocolate from Belgium and Mexico to craft her European-style truffles, flavors them with exotic spices, and covers them with ganache made with butter and heavy whipping cream.
Her confections have earned a slew of positive press, including a spot on Good Morning Texas, which showcases her inventive chocolate molds in holiday-appropriate shapes. Her team can also create custom molds, allowing patrons to fulfill a lifelong dream of eating Rodin’s The Thinker.:m]]
