Perhaps it was this little known and not widely celebrated holiday that had entered my thoughts that led me and my friend T. to a lovely shop in Phillipsburg, New Jersey called Antoinette Chocolatier.

Antoinette and her husband, Joe, work together in their meticulous kitchen and turn out the most delectable and really gorgeous pieces of chocolate. One of a kind. Chocolate to melt slowly in your mouth and to be savored. A really cool gift for the chocolate lover in your life.

Going clockwise: champagne truffle, salted caramel, nut cluster, chipotle (striped), peanut butter cup, Jane, raz-ma-taz (raspberry filling), and in the center raspberry swirl. My favorite? All of them!
You can visit their website and order online. You can also read more about the health benefits of chocolate here.
I think everyone should have a chocolatier. It might just be the key to inner peace. And with enough endorphins coursing through our veins, perhaps a world at peace.
