Pixie Dust Chocolates

Chocolate flows in deep dark, sweet waves, a river to ignite my mind and alert my senses. Add wine and it's divine.

I had a delicious meeting yesterday with Melissa of Pixie Dust Chocolates, which is a small family business that is getting "sweet" reviews in and around town.

All of the solid dark, milk and white chocolates are handmade and painted with either cocoa butter or shimmer dust (pixie dust). Melissa also creates custom bars featuring your logo or design which I'm thinking would be great for about any event imaginable.

So what's the latest trend in chocolate?  For Pixie Dust it is frogs and huckleberries.

Melissa says her molded frog chocolates have been extremely popular. Admittedly they are cute and about the perfect size for a mini indulgence. This dark chocolate is the perfect pairing for Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. I tried one or two (okay three) of the dark chocolate frogs with Barrister 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, “Sagemoor” which was perfectly paired. The Huckleberry white chocolate was a natural with Latah Creek Huckleberry D'Latah, (Riesling) and the Raspberry Jammer heart was wonderful with Whitestone's Piece of Red.

So how did I make this sweet encounter. On facebook! Melissa commented on a tweet post that linked to an article entitled "Forget Love...I'd rather fall in Chocolate" http://www.sipofspokane.com/2010/03/forget-loveid-rather-fall-in-chocolate.html She sweetly suggested I was missing out on something indulgently delicious in local chocolate. How could I not meet her and her chocolate? After I indulged her delectable art, I promptly added her to the article of places to get your chocolate fix. Pixie Dust Chocolates are magical and I am a fan.

Ahh Chocolate...

"It's not that chocolates are a substitute for love. Love is a substitute for chocolate. Chocolate is, let's face it, far more reliable than a man (woman)". Miranda Ingram
