Great Chocolate in OC?

  • 4

My daughter wants an expensive box of chocolates for Christmas and I'm at a loss as to where to begin looking for this. She doesn't mean See's or Helen Grace.

  1. How about Chuao at the Irvine Spectrum? I love them, but they're exactly as you requested; expensive.

      I second Chuao. I just picked up one of their big boxes and will be analyzing each type of chocolate for a special Christmas article.

    2. Chuao Chocolatier at Irvine Spectrum: great unusual flavor combinations (eg: strawberry balsamic or chocolate with chili powder).

      Teuscher at Fashion Island: more traditional

      1. Thanks for the input. I shall take myself off to either Fashion Island or Irvine Spectrum post haste.
