I took a quick field trip over to Moonstruck Chocolates this morning because, well, do I need to have a reason?? Actually, I went there because Mother’s Day is this weekend, and my birthday is just around the corner, so I thought good chocolate was in order. Moonstruck Chocolates is a local Portland company that has received loads of awards, honors, and national press (Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, Rachael Ray, Academy Awards, Emmy Awards, etc.). They have several cafe locations in the Portland metro area, and are carried at various retailers across the US. Or you can buy them online.
One of the things I like about Moonstruck chocolates is that some of their truffles feature Oregon products like Clear Creek Distillery brandy, Oregon huckleberry preserves, and Pinot Noirs from several different wineries (Sokol Blosser, Lachini, Ayoub).
I hand-picked a 4-pc. box of for myself: a Kir Royale Truffle, a Champagne Truffle, an Ayoub Pinot Noir Truffle, and a Clear Creek Apple Brandy Truffle (a Limited Edition Anniversary truffle). The chocolates are a delicious splurge that any chocolate lover would treasure! Now I just need to find a good hiding spot for mine so my family doesn’t eat them!!
