Jewels You Can Eat



Do you remember those gorgeous chocolates that I featured on my blog two years ago? 


That chocolate maker, XO Confections recently opened of retail store of his own in the Scottsdale Old Town area and yesterday was the grand opening.  When I heard about the grand opening I made a point of putting it on my calendar so I wouldn't miss it.



I'm so glad I went.  I got to meet Jason Wasser, the founder and chocolate maker.  And, to top things off, they sell beautiful pastries as well as those gorgeous chocolates.  Jason is holding one of his creations in the photo to the left.

I read that Jason has a degree in molecular biology and has used that knowledge to learn how to make exquisite chocolates and desserts.  Now that is putting a science degree to delicious use. 

As you might guess, I brought some home with me and I'm thrilled to know where I can go to get a really spectacular dessert.

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  I'm visiting one of the historic California missions.

Why do you do this? I have no control when it comes to chocolate and I'd write more but I have to check to see if our refrigerator has any Snickers bars left! Sheesh!
