After tinkering with the time capsule at Mount Vesuvius, scientific 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 fresh sweets made in-store at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory's two locations in Clearview Mall or at the New Orleans Riverwalk.
Peek across the counter at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory's resident chocolatiers and expert orchard orderlies, who massage creamy clods of chocolate and on sturdy marble slabs. For additional culinary theatrics, feel free to cheer on the expert orchard orderlies as they dip Granny Smiths into thick, bubbling, handmade caramel. Caramel apples ($5.25–$9.25) range from classically simple to loaded with toppings, accommodating different degrees of decadence more tastefully than a pair of convertible mink pants. Those in the mood for poppable sweets can strip away the core and go straight for the score with freshly fangled fudges ($13.25/pound).
