This week’s #FriFotos theme is CHOCOLATE! I had a blast looking through my old pictures and finding my favorite photos of chocolate around the world, from Austria to Italy to Massachusetts.
You may notice a significant absence — Southeast Asia. Chocolate isn’t much of an attraction there, and most of my chocolate intake there was in the form of a bar clandestinely purchased at 7-Eleven.
Behold — some chocolate pictures that will make your mouth water!
I was delighted by the grapes, chocolate and cocoa powder outlines of utensils at the Duomo Hotel in Rimini, Italy. One of my favorite hotel welcomes!
This chocolate cake was a belated birthday surprise at the Interalpen Hotel-Tyrol, in Seefeld, Austria, sent by my sister!
THE WORLD’S LARGEST CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN! It’s at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Chocolate tiffin — made with biscuits (eek, I said it!), shortbread, raisins, and tons of melted chocolate. It’s one of my favorite culinary discoveries in England.
My friend Mike LOVES Volkswagens — he even has a Volkswagen tattoo! — so for his birthday in Chester, England, he got chocolate Volkswagen cupcakes!
A must in Vienna — the Sacher Torte. It’s chocolate cake layered with apricot jam — it sounds like an odd combination, but it’s absolutely delicious!
Fudge! At the Fudgery in Rockport, Massachusetts, the smallest size of fudge they sell lasts me about a week and a half. It’s that rich.
And finally, one of the most unusual and perfect chocolate desserts I’ve had: raw vegan chocolate mousse made with avocado, at Haramara Retreat in Sayulita, Mexico, with Nourish Retreats.
That’s the end of the chocolate photos for now — but I’m sure they will continue here in Spain! I hear that Barcelona is the place for trendiness in Spain, and if anyone has good Spanish chocolate, it’s them. For apartment rentals in Barcelona, click here for the best deals.
