I saw that Erin posted about Christopher Elbow in the past, but I wanted to document my experience! This weekend I discovered the most delicious (and beautiful) chocolates in Kansas City! No Lie!

Christopher Elbow has a GORGEOUS minimalistic chocolate boutique in downtown Kansas City, I was introduced to his delicious treats by a good friend of mine. I wanted to just look at the chocolates up close because they looked amazing online. I ended up buying a box of 9 and picked the flavors I wanted. So worth it!

My camera broke :C so I had to take a photo using my iSight, this pictures does not do the chocolates justice (they were like little jewels) ! The flavors I got were (from left to right) - Lavender Caramel, Dark Milk, Vanilla Bean, Banana Curry (MY FAVE!), Caramel With Fluer de Sel (Sea Salt), Passion Fruit, Spiced Apple, Fresh Lime, Jamaican Rum

Wow! I need to go back. He also sells Hot Chocolate, which I'm hoping to try soon. I found out after doing some online research on him that he has been featured on Oprah, Food & Wine, Fine Cooking, InStyle, the Food Network, and a few other!

If you click on the 'Christopher Elbow' Label below you can read Erin's great post about him as well!
