Christy Visits Las Vegas

Christy's Gourmet Gifts - Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas NevadaFirst day in Vegas we arrived early. Headed out to Grand Canyon and found our first chocolate shop. Okay so its not “Vegas style”, but I loved the vintage sign. Chocolate in the desert? Mmm…. Interesting concept. Have to wonder what kind of chocolate doesn’t melt in this heat??????

Yesterday was a very exciting and busy day filled with chocolate adventures. We started our day at the Ethel M chocolate shop. They have a fantastic pecan brittle that we watched them make. Then we enjoyed some Mexican hot chocolate with chili and cinnamon. Next stop Vosges Haut Chocolat. Vosges was beautiful and carried many exotic flavours. Bernie tried the “bacon bar”. I enjoyed the more traditional exotic caramels. Next stop Jean Phillipe patisserie! Great day in Vegas!

Wow, what a site at the Jean Philippe Patisserie in Las Vegas! A beautiful chocolate fountain that mixed milk, white and dark chocolate. Other gourmet treats included designer cakes, truffles, nut brittles and nougat. Bernie and I enjoyed the most wonderful coffee and of course a treat. I couldn’t resist the vanilla nougat with almonds and pistachios. Delicious!
