Chocolate Tasting in Cologne

Apparently this week is chocolate week in the UK. So, never mind that it sounds like nothing more than an excuse to buy, sell, eat, scoff and dream of chocolate…I thought I’d join in with photos from my last chocolate adventure. The ever-so-educational chocolate museum in Cologne.

Chocolate Tasting – A Vital Part of Any Educational Institution

 Disclosure – I travelled to Cologne as a guest of Eurostar Explorer. Double disclosure…I am off to get my hands on some chocolate as soon as I’ve pressed publish…

May Your Chocolate Fountain Overflow…

What a gorgeous view from that chocolate factory! You caught me with the simple headline – can’t resist a chocolate post :)

Like Shannon, I saw the headline and beelined over to this post.

OMG chocolate! OMG.

I just tried making some honey-lime chocolate truffles. Good news is they tasted pretty good. Bad news is they wouldn’t harden so now they are frozen trufflesque chocolates.
