The only people who should avoid chocolate that melts on the hands are fine-art dusters and crab walkers visiting a home with white carpets. Embrace the fleeting nature of culinary bliss with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of confections at Gearharts Fine Chocolates on Libbie Avenue. This Groupon is only valid for in-store purchases.
Gearhart’s artisans craft a menu of chocolates with Venezuelan Criolla cacao, local sweet cream and butter, and a cornucopia of fruits, nuts, and liquors. The Venezuelan dark chocolate bar ($4.50 each) coaxes dynamic cacao from its dark, delicious lair with ginger, espresso, or Mayan chocolate-flavored lullabies. Chai lovers can extend morning buzzes into the afternoon with caramelized Georgia pecans ($8) swathed in dark chocolate and dusted with chai-spiced cocoa.
Sate children’s natural tendencies toward precious gem thievery with a Jewel Bar ($6), featuring roasted almonds and pistachios, dried cherries, and candied orange peel set elegantly into bittersweet or milk chocolate. Equally sparkling options include crystallized Australian ginger ($9) dipped in dark chocolate.
Gearhart’s line of specialty fine chocolates is available in a variety of chic assortments, including a sampler containing 16 goody-filled orbs ($23). Sophisticated flavors such as an Ancho chili-dusted Maya chocolate, tea-infused Earl Grey, and a tequila-lime variety dipped in white chocolate are sure to impress every guest at uncouth Crunch bar-themed dinner parties.
