So we’re heading home from the Long Beach Grand Prix and decide to find a place to get some chocolate goodies. Essential Chocolate Desserts is on the way home so we stop in for a visit. Walking in you get embraced by truffles and handmade goodies that make your eyes pop. Our choices (as shown in the photo above):
Ding Dong – Must have! Tastes like the real thing, but doesn’t leave a weird, waxy taste in your mouth. Cake is thick and the filling is dense and creamy. Great chocolate shell. Not overly sweet, it balances the flavors nicely.
Mini flourless cake – No thanks. Lacked flavor and the texture was more like a muffin.
Cake truffle – We took more of these home, as you see from the photo above. Awesome flavor and texture. About the size of a golf ball, they take a few bites to enjoy and are worth every one. I am not a cake fan, but these are more like frosting/cake balls covered in chocolate. The cake is barely noticeable. German chocolate was our favorite.
Another tasty treat we took home was a chocolate macaroon. Again, I am not a big fan, but wanted to try it. Glad we did because it was fabulous and had the consistency of a fudgy brownie. Great flavor, too.
If you are ever in the neighborhood of Essential Chocolate Desserts, I highly recommend stopping in for some goodies. In the market for premium chocolate? Check out the selection at Drexelius Chocolates and have some delivered today.
