Meet our new BFFs. Seriously, these two brothers, Nick and Chris, have the best job in the world and are seriously two of the funniest guys in the Seattle area. They own Oh! Chocolate AKA our new favorite place ever to exist.
A few months ago we booked a chocolate class and patiently waited for our special chocolate day. Um, it was worth the wait because this class is AMAZING!! Seriously, it is "died and gone to heaven" amazing.
When we arrived they served us the best hot chocolate we've ever had. It tasted like melted chocolate with whipped cream on top. Nick shared his hot chocolate secret with us and let's just say we vowed to hit the treadmill or put in our favorite workout DVD in the morning. The hot chocolate alone is worth a trip to their stores.
They then served us a plate full of chocolate for the taste testing portion of the class. Look at this. We each got our OWN plate. They shared with us how chocolate is made, what the differences are and we had so much fun taste testing them all. It was all very entertaining and we were laughing as much as we were eating.
We were interested to know that their bittersweet and their semi-sweet are vegan. They did not contain any milk at all and they were DELISH.
Once we finished up tasting all of the different kinds of chocolate we moved on to the chocolate tempering part of the class. They taught us the best way to dip goodies in chocolate, brought out pitchers of chocolate and then let us go. (Yes, you read it right--PITCHERS of chocolate!!!)
We experimented with different items and had a lot of fun. I think the most unusual combo is the chocolate potato chip.
Store rules say you have to lick your fingers clean when you are done because chocolate clogs up the drain. Of course, we were good little birdies and did as we were told. They didn't have to ask us twice to eat more chocolate.
At the end of the night we were sent home with a heavy box of chocolate dipped goodies. I think we have enough to last us a good month or so.
Well, what do you think? Did we make you want to go to Oh! Chocolate too? Seriously, if you are ever in the vicinity of an Oh! Chocolate RUN do not walk to the nearest store and see what it is all about. Take a class if you can. If you happen to bump into Nick or Chris make sure you tell them, "Hello!" and tell them a little birdie sent you.
