C-Hounders, I am shocked to find nothing on this board about this gem (if I missed it in my search, my apologies).
If you love chocolate (and who doesn't?!), you need to go here immediately. For the men on the board, this would be an excellent place to get sweets for your sweetie since a certain commercial holiday is upon us. Took a drive through the lovely Litchfield Hills out here and was not disappointed at all. First, you must order the hot chocolate--hands down, best one I've ever had. Its rich and velvety with a generous dollop of fresh whipped cream atop. Next--the chocolate. They have quite the array of chocolates you can buy by the piece (or pound) but be prepared--it is expensive. They also have croissants, mousse, belgian fruit candies and other delectable delights. My husband and I were like kids in a candy store :) If the drive is daunting, make a day trip out of it by stopping at Kent Falls--beautiful even this time of the year.
