Look at this.
It is a hot chocolate shot. As in, a serving of hot chocolate that is so decadent, so creamy, so mind-blowingly fantastic that you can’t handle a normal-sized serving.
Get in your car.
Enter this building.
Never ever leave.
In this glorious place of business you will find all of your chocolate-covered dreams come true. No joke, The Chocolate Bar is one of my favorite places in Houston, if not the entire world. Within those doors there are colossal cakes, ambrosial drinks, ice creams galore, and every single food known to man—covered in chocolate. Like any amazing foodie location, it’s a place where you check your dignity, diet, and budget at the door, completely surrendering to the bliss-fest that awaits.
This past visit, I picked up my fair share of goodies, to be shared amongst the fam, of course.
There were chocolate-covered pringles…
…cake slices bigger than my head…
…chocolate-covered salted caramels…
…chocolate-covered mint Milano cookies…
…as well as an assortment of peanut butter cups, chocolate-covered rice krispies, chocolate-covered twinkies, and chocolate-covered caramel pretzels.
If none of that floats your boat, I’ve also come across traditional chocolate-covered fruits—both fresh and candied—all the way to chocolate-covered piles of Capn’ Crunch cereal. This place has everything.
Last but not least, I brought home this mysterious box. Can you guess what it contained?
Fortune cookies covered in three different kinds of chocolate.
They were yum-tastic.
Truly, my friends, if any of you ever find yourselves hanging around the Houston area, make sure to pay a visit to The Chocolate Bar.
Schmooze with the tables of college kids attempting to finish a piece of Night & Day cake and fight the pharmacy reps for the last bag of chocolate-covered oreos that they use to butter up the doctors in the Medical Center.
Rehydrate with a hot chocolate shot.
Buy me a chocolate pizza and Texas Frito brittle as a thank you.
