Love and Chocolate

Pin it

This past weekend, a group of us went on a lady excursion around our neighborhood in North Oakland. We try to do this at least once a month: get together for lunch, drink fancy cocktails way too early in the day, then end up at some little spot for delectable end-of-the-day treats. Saturday’s spot? Bittersweet — an amazing little chocolate shop that specializes in all things utterly sinful. Their specialty is hot chocolate of pretty much every variety you’ve heard of, including Euro, American-style, spicy, iced,  and dark… and that’s just the beginning.

I ordered up a salted caramel hot chocolate, and I’ve got to admit, it was the most delicious thing I’ve had in a while. It got me thinking that a fancy cup of hot chocolate is pretty much a surefire way to win the heart of whoever you’ve got your eye on. Trust me — even if she doesn’t love chocolate, this’ll melt her completely.
