Pre-Bar Treats

Ok...quick post.  I just have to share.  My college roommate, Ashley (Mo), is more than just a biotech engineer (or whatever she does, lol), she's also super thoughtful.  This seems to be a theme with my college roommates...super smart and super thoughtful...right girls?  Anyway, for my graduation she sent me wine and chocolate of the month club for the bar exam.  Last month I got Chilean and Spanish wine.  Yesterday, some fabulous chocolates came in the mail...5 days before the bar exam.  PERFECT timing.  So, I open up the newsletter that accompanied the chocolate and it turns out that the chocolatier is a lawyer.  About 10 years ago, he left the legal profession to do what he loved - make chocolates.  This is yet another lawyer gone creative foodie genius.  How appropriate for The Law of Cupcakes and the week before the bar exam.  Not that I needed an excuse to devour the entire box, but now I feel like it's going to give me good mojo.

Oh, and I should also mention that they not only look pretty but there are some AWESOME flavors in there.  Cinnamon honey, cayenne, passion fruit, mojito, and lavender lime, just to name a few.  I just had the coconut pineapple and it was seriously DREAMY!  Here's his website if you're interested:

One more thing: the newsletter also said this, "we'll wager Gourmet Chocolate of the Month Club members will agree we need more chocolatiers in the world a heck of a lot more than we need more lawyers!"  Just a little food for thought.  Although, I think you can be both.  :)

Can't wait to get back to baking!  Next post will involve something homemade, I promise.  Wish me luck!
