El Diablo

One of my lovely Valentine's Day surprises was this devilishly delectable treat my parents picked up at Alma Chocolate. It's a hand-made chocolate actually covered with edible 23 karat gold leaf, and is damn cool lookin'. Portlander Sarah Hart, in true DIY fashion, started off selling chocolates from her home, at Farmer's Market, First Thursday and the like. She has now opened her own little brick-and-mortar shop on NE 28th and the buzz is great. Apparently she can't keep up with the demand for her amazing edible icons. And this must be true, as my dad went back for more the next day and the place was completely cleaned out. Fancy that! I'm enjoying looking at it so much, though, that I don't know if I can bring myself to actually eating it...well just maybe some from his ear...

It's about 2 inches tall by 1 inch wide...and no, I chickened out. Eric was gone all day, and he definitely must be included. I almost feel like there should be some sacred rituals before consuming!

This is the coolest thing I've seen today. Wow! What a neat gift. Maybe light some candles and do a little dance around it before he is consumed. Te he he 8-)
