Downtown Middletown's got a new chocolate shop! It replaces Sweet Smelling Savour Chocolates and, while not inexpensive, offers some tasty and innovative treats. Some of my favorites include chocolate-covered marzipan, amaretti truffles and a walnut bonbon (?) filled with almond paste and ground nuts. The proprietor makes his own tootsie rolls (they're somewhat fudge-like), marshmallows (we sampled an anise-flavored one) and has plenty of "experimental" flavors--one I tried was "Porky Porcini." I already let him know if he's gonna call it Porky, it really should include bacon. ;) I couldn't taste the truffle oil in the chocolate, but it's an interesting concept. I haven't tried many of his more creative combos as I really love the almond variations, but you'll find chocolates with all sorts of unusual spices if that's of interest!
The chocolate shop is right next to Amici's on the corner of Main and Court Streets if you're looking for a sweet treat after your meal downtown.
