I have a friend who makes the best chocolate. Like, you’d have no idea it wasn’t from some crazy chocolatier. (She actually started up her own company but it was too much to deal with in addition to her day job and if it were up to me she’d start it up again. Ahem…Megan!)
But no matter. Because even if you’re not gifted in the chocolates department, you can gift in the chocolates department (see what I did there?).
LA’s Benchic Chocolate just launched chocolate-making kits complete with a reusable mould, organic Peruvian cocoa butter, wild California Honey (from near Long Beach), organic Peruvian Lucuma Powder, and the like. They’re not cheap — $79 USD before shipping — but you can’t put a price on chocolate-flavoured fun.
