Locals Guide: March
Ten years ago, the owner of a local restaurant asked me to create a chocolate sauce that he could use with his espresso machine. We have perfected our Chocolate Sauce recipe and now make it by the kettleful. We mix sugar, vanilla, and water with pure chocolate liquor–which is made by grinding the nib of the cocoa bean into a thick paste that melts when heated. Chocolate liquor contains no alcohol, as opposed to chocolate liqueur, which is alcohol with chocolate added to it. Chocolate Sauce is delicious on ice cream, fruit, waffles, and is perfect as a base for hot cocoa and chocolate milk. One of our customers even swears it’s best just eaten straight from the bottle. However you like it, and whatever you like it on, we have your Chocolate Sauce!
If you want to catch us out and about, we’ll be—
- March 9th-11th, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we will be at the Oregon Chocolate Festival at Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites.
- March 17th-18th, Saturday 11-5 and Sunday 11-4, we will be at the Oregon Cheese Festival at Rogue Creamery in Central Point.
Easter is Sunday, April 1st this year. We are busy making chocolate treats, including everyone’s favorite bunnies, so stop in, get your favorites, and fill your baskets. We’re at 1662 Siskiyou Boulevard, just a block south of 7-11, in the Minute Market shopping center. We’re open Monday-Saturday 10-5:30.
