After tinkering with base of Mount Vesuvius, explorers unleashed a flood of chocolate lava stored away by a mischievous child. Savor the fruit of this ancient prank with today's deal: for $7, you get $15 worth of store-made sweets at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in Taylor.
To make the shop's signature line of goodies, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory's resident choco-artisans use the traditional chocolatier method of massaging creamy loaves of chocolate on sturdy marble slabs. Cheer on the expert orchard orderlies as they kettle-dip granny smiths into caramel-coated creations ranging from the classically simple (starting at $3.99) to the Apple Pie apple, which is rolled in roasted brown sugar and cinnamon, after being liberally dipped in rich white confection. For additional pampering, snag a pound of kissable chocolate-covered strawberries ($21.99), or feast on dipped delicacies, such as dipped oreos or graham crackers ($1 each) and chocolate-covered bananas ($2.99).
