DallasChocolate.org is sharing its love of artisan chocolate this holiday season with a five-bar all-Texas chocolate collection. Called “Friends with Chocolate,” the curated collection features bars from top chocolate makers and chocolatiers from around the Lone Star State. DallasChocolate.org founder, Sander Wolf, has called upon prominent chocolatiers and Dallas Chocolate Festival favorites to assemble this collection. The result is a unique set of bars sure to delight lovers of chocolate and artisan small businesses. Each chocolatier had their own take on holiday flavors, and no two in the collection are alike. What they do have in common: rich, dark chocolate and the finest ingredients.

Dallas has so many wonderful hot spots that can supply your secret stash of chocolate. We would certainly recommend Dude, Sweet Chocolate with three locations in the DFW area (with a fourth about to open in McKinney), CocoAndre in Oak Cliff, and Kate Weiser in Trinity Groves (soon to open another location) for starters. Don’t forget Katy Priore’s bark Chocolate that she sells at Carbone’s and other Dallas locations such a Bolsa Mercado who is also about to open her own shop at the Dallas Farmers Market.
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. Continue reading

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
