Essential Chocolate Desserts – Review

Essential Chocolate Desserts - Ding Dong
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.

Essential Chocolate Desserts - Cake TrufflesCake 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.

    Thank you for the review on yelp and the wonderful things you had to say about our desserts in your blog. We do our best to offer our customers the best product and the best service possible. Next time, come in for the ice cream but before you do print out our coupon from our website.

    Sorry about the mini flourless chocolate cake bites. They must have dried out in the dry chocolate case. We’ll pull them today!

    Till next time,
