5 Of Our Favorite Chocolate Souffles In Dallas Just In Time For Mother’s Day

souffle2by Steven Doyle

Dallas has so many wonderful hot spots that can supply your secret stash of chocolate for Mother’s Day. We would certainly recommend Dude, Sweet Chocolate with three locations in the DFW area, CocoAndre in Oak Cliff, and Kate Wiser in Trinity Groves for starters. Don’t forget Katy Priore’s bark Chocolate that she sells at Carbone’s and other Dallas locations such a Bolsa Mercado.

We do love our chocolate. We also also enjoy it in souffle form, and we have found some of the best places to drop a few dollars on the light and airy dessert that makes a meal more special, especially this time of year when hearts go fluttering at the mere mention of the sweet dish.     Continue reading

An Easter Pop Up With A Cause


A group of pastry chefs will be holding a pop-up shop for Easter on April 4th from 10am-3pm at 3001 Gaston Ave at the Big E’s store. This pop-up is extra special because they are all including something to donate to a charity of their choice.

Bark Chocolate is sponsoring DFW German Shepherd Rescue as the charity they will be donating to. More specifically, to a particular dog named Jake, who was surrendered by his owners in extremely poor condition. He will need a lot of vet care and TLC until he’s healed enough to be available for adoption. Bark  will be selling organic dog treats and 100% of the proceeds will go to Jake’s vet bills. Additionally, they will have a donation jar set up for him, and people are welcome to bring dog toys for Jake as well.   Continue reading

DSC03535by Steven Doyle

Your wait for something terrifically sweet is nearly over. What has been almost two years in the making is about to come to fruition in Trinity Groves. When chocolatier Kate Weiser opens her doors August 19th it will have much the same wonderment of Wonkaland when Gene Wilder waved his cane as the flowing colors of sweets sparkled in the eyes of the children who stood in glee.

We were able to slow Kate down just for a moment this week to chat a bit about her grand opening. That in itself is a feat of magic since she is highhandedly orchestrating the operations with her tiny band of pastry chefs. Kate is a human dynamo, packed with energy with on setting: full steam. Read on for our chat with Kate.   Continue reading
