Spa Treat: Free Chocolate

Every spa needs a few treats and here's a chocolate dream. On Friday, while walking on Lincoln Road (an outdoor mall on Miami Beach), I passed by a Ghiradelli chocolate store and received a free square of gourmet chocolate: a yummy piece of dark chocolate filled with caramel.

I asked and found out that all of Ghiradelli shops offer regular free chocolate treats. Most of the stores are in California, but there are locations in other regions of the country.

What's more the company website has free recipes for making your own chocolate candy, including White Chocolate Mousse and Chocolate Truffles.

I'm not much of cook or baker, but the recipes looked easy to me.

And the company is also having chocolate contests at state fairs all over the country. Here is the schedule.
