Okay, where I did I leave off? Oh yes! I was introducing you to one of the most amazing men…ever…Matthew Shepherd:
Owner and Chocolatier of Matthew’s Chocolates in downtown Hillsborough
As I mentioned I was scanning the main chocolate case, and I was completely thrilled to see how many of the treats were gluten free!
So many in fact, that I ended up purchasing a few treats for Parrish and I to share!
Each chocolate is like a tiny piece of art! When looking online for other reviews of Matthew’s, I noticed a few comments on the expense of the chocolates. Each one I bought was around $2, and while some folks would scoff at that price, I think it’s pretty reasonable. Handmade, hand molded, hand painted chocolates that are a tiny bite of heaven. I would much rather have one serving of delicious chocolate, than a bar of so-so chocolate. But enough about that, back to the chocolate!
They’re so pretty. My absolute favorite was the piece I let you preview. It was fun reading your guesses on the flavor, and one of you was spot on!
Key Lime White Chocolate Truffle
So. Good. Light, tangy, with a light sweetness. Up next:
Peanut Butter Crunch!
My absolute FAVORITE! Vanilla Butter cream!! O.MI.GOODNESS
I would choose just one of these over a piece of wedding cake any day!
Definitely one of the prettiest! Coconut Cherry Chocolate
I love coconut. I really, really love coconut.
I don’t have a picture of the inside of this particular piece, because I savored it in one full bite. It was perfection.
PHEW! What a review. Looking at all the pictures sort of makes me want to drive to Hillsborough, just for a little fix. Not a big box, just a couple…well maybe a few. :)
What are your favorite flavors of chocolates?
I typically choose peanut butter and chocolate over everything…but now that I’ve tried vanilla butter cream and black coffee truffle, I’m torn!
