Got my trail name 'cause I kept getting introduced as "This is Rich--the chocolatier." Became official when Bleemus wrote it in the log at the top of Stratton Mountain.
You guys (and gals) are way too kind. Anyway, chocolate's awfully satisfying at the end of a long hiking day. Heck, I eat the beans straight. You join me for a hang, there will always be good chocolate!
Here's the sort of stuff I usually do, btw. A bit too nice to hike with, but the customers like 'em. The last batch of these was fresh strawberries and crushed cacao beans in milk chocolate.
Skypainter, what'd your wife think of the truffles & bonbons?
