Since I returned from Tabasco and the exploration of the cacao plantations I have stayed very busy making chocolate and getting ready for the Strawberry Festival in Long Grove IL. In order to keep things fresh I always try to keep my eye out for new and exciting products for you to try. Since the Aztecs, Mayans and Olmec gave chocolate to the world I thought it might be nice to honor them with a small chocolate piece in the shape of one of the stone carvings I saw in Mexico. I am currently exploring mold making to see how to get a mold of this guy:
Imagine a cute little bite sized piece of chocolate looking like this. You tell me, is this something you'd like to eat a box of?
I hope to see everyone in Long Grove though I know many of my friends will be at the RCI convention and you will be missed. I'll see you at the reunion though.
