Charmed by Chocolate

This Sunday I am hosting a small chocolate bar tasting at my place, and last night I purchased the chocolate for the party from Biagio (my favorite chocolate shop near Adams Morgan). I brought a list of the top ten bars from, but I also asked the shop guys what their favorites were. I ended up buying some of their favs, my favs, and some tops from I also bought several small sample sizes for my guests’ favors. Oh, and the people at Biagio were fantastic, offering me complimentary samples so I knew more about the bars I was purchasing. From that mini tasting, I discovered a new favorite of mine is Michel Cluizel’s Maralumi. It’s so smooth! Below are the bars I purchased in large or sample sizes for this weekend’s get-together. Can’t wait!
