OK, I already have many chocolate-box-sized reasons to go to Boon Chocolate, which is one of my fave places in Sydney. Just before Christmas, they even added a new passionfruit/caramel flavour, which had me re-ranking my most-loved chocs there.
But now they’ve really upped the ante, with this gorgeous Flores de Mayo Chocolate Bag. It’s named after a popular Filippino festival (Flowers of May is the literal translation – and the bag’s raining pattern of petals spells out the connection quite sweetly).
How Fanny, Boon’s chocolatier, manages to hand-make all these intricate creations astounds my lazy-brained self. I’m sure any new ideas she comes up with for choc-dipped events such as Valentine’s Day and Easter will be similarly mind-stunning.
