Liquid Nitro Chocolate-Almond Truffle with Warm Whiskey Caramel –  $4.75

The Liquid Nitro Truffle is still a delight and still on our absolute must list for the event for all the reasons we have been saying for years now.

Sweet Dark Chocolate Raspberry Torte with Whipped Cream and Raspberry Dust –  $4.25

For those who prefer a dark chocolate flavor, the raspberry torte is absolutely sublime. A nice alternative to the truffle… or you could just get both…

Justin Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles –  $7.00

This comes in around $30 a bottle outside of the festival, so $7 for a glass isn’t a terrible deal considering the majority of the festival prices. Pairs well with either chocolate dessert and it’s perfectly enjoyable.

Banfi Rosa Regale, Piedmont –  $9.00

This is that bright red translucent wine that comes up whenever chocolate is advertised somewhere. It’s not bad, but $9 a glass is hard to swallow considering how readily available and inexpensive the wine is elsewhere.

Lenotti Recioto della Valpolicella, Veneto –  $10.00

Fairly unique and difficult to find outside of the festival, we recommend this purchase which pairs well with the chocolates.

RL Buller Fine Muscat, Rutherglen –  $6.00

Another fairly interesting wine for the festival, high ratings across the board on many wine enthusiast websites, and at $6 a glass it feels validated.
