Forget Love, I’d Rather Fall in Chocolate!

Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.  ~Ernestine Ulmer

Ernestine, we don’t know who you are, but we have been living by your quote. Before LeeJee met Dax, she thought that there was no one in the world who was as obsessed with chocolate as she was. But then she met Dax, and everything changed.

Together, they feed off of each other’s obsession and basically live a life revolved around chocolate. We continue to search New York City, inside out, to find the best chocolate desserts. Here are our favorites so far! We have also included some excellent chocolate advice from Dax’s Father, Luis Acosta.

Advice #2: Chocolate is a vegetable. It is derived from cacao beans, and a bean is a vegetable. Sugar is derived from sugar cane or sugar beets, which places them in the vegetable category, so chocolate is a vegetable.

Advice #7: A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories at once. Isn’t that handy? If you can’t eat all of your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can’t eat all of your chocolate, something is wrong with you!
