The Art of Chocolate

The food scene across the river in Arlington, Va., keeps getting better and better. The latest proof is Artisan Confections.

My friends who live in Arlington brought us a box of chocolates by Artisan, and those chocolates were amazing. I was a little suspicious initially because I've been disappointed before by "pretty looking" chocolates.

But these Artisan chocolates were as dazzling to the taste buds as they were to the eyes. The bourbon-infused chocolates were excellent, as were the orange-cardamom. Yet our favorites were the salted butter caramel. Absolutely decadent.
