Schakolad Chocolate Factory

On yesterday, I went to Fort Worth, Texas with friends and by fortune, ran into a lovely chocolate shop in Sundance Square. If you ever find yourself in the area, please pay a visit to Schakolad. The smell will draw you in and the chocolate will not disappoint!


Chocolate Velvet Dessert

Standard

This creamy concoction is the result of several attempts to duplicate a dessert I enjoyed on vacation. It looks so beautiful on a buffet table that many folks are tempted to forgo the main course in favor of this chocolaty treat!
