It’s the toasty malt flavor running throughout that makes this dense, rich malted chocolatey, fudgey, chocolate tower so intoxicatingly good. Eating it makes you feel bad in a really good way.

Pig Candy @ Roni-Sue’s Chocolates

You remember when you were five, and mumsy made delicious, fluffy pancakes drenched in sweet maple syrup, and she added a few strips of bacon on the side? And remember how your brain exploded in a delicious burst of culinary WTF when you bit down on a piece of salty bacon that had somehow become drenched in syrup? You didn’t know it then, but you were munching on an early, non-twee version of what would eventually come to be known as “pig candy.” Strips of crispy bacon coated and fried in brown sugar or syrup is usually the way it’s done, but Roni- Sue’s has a dark chocolate/milk chocolate version that’s toe-curlingly yummy. For just under ten dollars a quarter pound, you’ll get a lovely bag of of tangy salt and carmelized sweet goodness. Serve it up at your next dinner party or tear into the bag yourself as soon as you walk out of the shop.

Everything @The Chocolate Room

If Willy Wonka had long since retired to Majorca and Charlie was busy with a dozen other factories on the European continent but had proteges named Jon Payson and Naomi Josepher who moved to Brooklyn to resolve the borough’s shortage of fabulous chocolate eateries, you’d have The Chocolate Room. Naturally, everything is made of chocolate here, and everything is good. If you need help narrowing down your choices, the Flourless Chocolate Cake is basically a plate full of heaven. A rich, mellow chocolate mold is nestled in a plate of raspberry framboise and topped off with dense rich cream. This cocoa palace only uses fresh, all-natural ingredients, and everything is made by hand. If you’re thinking that the only thing that would make this place even better would be a glass of port or a glass of Medoc, you’re in luck; The Chocolate Room serves wine and spirits.
