From my RV kitchen
Are you a fan of boutique chocolates? If so, explore some of my personal favorites right here:
Dagoba Organic Chocolate from Ashland, Oregon - specializing in single source chocolates and infused flavors like lavendar, chili or raspberry/rosehips. If you can get their baking chocolate use it in this recipe!
Scharffen Berger, made in Berkley, California by a former winemaker, offers a nice variety of chocolates online and in many retail locations such as Trader Joe's. Take a virtual factory tour at their website.
Another Bay Area chocolatier, Recchiuti Confections is truly pinnacle of indulgence. Handcrafted with love and care by Michael Recchiuti in his small San Francisco kitchen, you can find these unique chocolates online and in San Francisco's Ferry Building Market.
