Chocolates | Christopher Elbow | Wedding Favors


Last night, Mike and I attended the Chocolate and Wine tasting at the Chocolate exhibit at Union Station.  The chocolate tasting was hosted by Christopher Elbow - Kansas City's very own (nationally acclaimed - voted #1 by Food & Wine!) chocolate artisan.    



For us to sample, he brought a raspberry chocolate, "A layer of fresh raspberry pate de fruit topped with a dark chocolate-raspberry infused ganache"  (via elbowchocolates.com) and a fig and ganache (hello holidays!) - it was delightful.  As a person does not typically ooh and aah over chocolates, I have to tell you, these chocolates blew me away.  They have such a delicate and luxurious texture, flavor, and ultimate decadent quality.   


This is the sample box Christopher brought.  He also brought a sampling of his chocolate bar collection (left).  I think the tiny confections would be a dream as a favor for a wedding.  Can you imagine one of the chocolates below served with coffee or champagne?!  Crazy good.   The flavors below would be perfect for your wedding...

Passion Fruit - need I say more?!
Gran Marnier
Champagne - so sophisticated.  
These are a sampling of the other products they create - perfect for a welcome gift for your guests staying at the hotel!

And this gift box would be a great 'thank you' gift for anyone helping with your wedding (like your coordinator, wink, wink) - a little bit of a splurge - but I'm positive it is worth every penny.
