Rachel Dunn Chocolates
Surprisingly enough, the most popular item at Rachel Dunn Chocolates is an apple. The Unbelievable Apple, in fact. A true dessert behemoth, this nearly 3-pound fruit is painted with hearty coats of caramel, chocolate, and fresh-roasted almonds. There’s not even any room left for the stick. Feeding as many as 12 people when sliced up, the apple has earned the attention of celebrity sweets-lovers ranging from Rosie O’Donnell to Williams-Sonoma founder Chuck Williams.
That’s not to say that Rachel, a chocolatier with 30 years of experience, is a one-treat pony. Her beloved dark honeycomb chocolate was selected as one of the 101 Best Bites of the East Bay by Diablo magazine in 2011, and her kitchen has churned out more than 72 million of her addictive Ebird’s perfect peppermint cookies. Though esteemed, Rachel’s hardly secretive about her methods, she personally hosts regular chocolate-making classes in her very own factory.
