San Diego: Chuao Chocolatier

I found a great little, but highly designed chocolate maker in San Diego a few years ago.
Now they have 5 or 6 locations in Southern California.

Known for unusual combinations of chocolates, truffles, hot chocolate and bars. Their Cafe at the Forum Shops in Carlsbad is a great little hangout, if your looking for some dynamite chocolate and a place to sit.

I am a sucker for honey and chocolate and the combination is out of this world. The Chuao Honey Truffle is a five star delicacy.
Made with: Orange blossom honey blended in Venezuelan dark and milk chocolate ganache, finely coated in dark chocolate and rolled in powder sugar. I LOVE THIS ONE!

Everything is worth the drive, so go and get some if you're in the area.
