Piece, Love & Chocolate in Boulder
June 8, 2012
I’ve been wanting to get some pictures of the display cases in Piece, Love & Chocolate since I first went there last year. Recently my husband and I stopped by after dinner to get some cake to go, and I finally got some halfway decent ones.
Featuring chocolates made both in-house and from various other artisan chocolatiers, Piece, Love & Chocolate has some of the most gorgeous things I’ve ever seen. Such vibrant colors, encasing such delectable flavor combinations. It’s so incredibly difficult to narrow the choices down to just a few at a time whenever I stop by. (I like to limit myself to two or three. Well, I don’t LIKE it, but it’s necessary for caloric reasons.)
This section of the case is my favorite. Just look at the purple, red, burgundy and green chocolates. Aren’t they beyond gorgeous? And the little turtles with golden shells – so cool!
Here’s another area with some of my favorites. Check out the blue ones and the little green turtles!
You can get a small preview of the flavors available from their chocolate menu. Any stop here to pick up a small sampling will make you smile for the rest of the day.
In addition to having gorgeous truffles and bonbons, they also carry a dizzying selection of artisan chocolate bars for serious chocolate connoisseurs. (One bar that they carry is that of Ritual Chocolate, a company where I had the privilege of taking a private tour for local food bloggers).
Piece, Love & Chocolate also has a wonderful pastry case with gorgeous looking (and tasting) cakes and cheesecakes, made in-house. We took this lovely piece of chocolate salted caramel cake home with us that night:
Another very unique offering of Piece, Love & Chocolate is a variety of technique classes. They have classes for making chocolates, cakes, eclairs, chocolate sauces, and on and on. Yum!
I highly recommend checking this place out. It’s located on the west end of Pearl Street near Nick-N-Willy’s.
