Treasure Map
Whether hunting for goodies in your own backyard, or searching for chocolate jems in say Dubai, Chocomap is quite a handy companion. It locates and reviews chocolatiers world wide and it seems to be pretty thorough, although I don't see any arrows for the Vosges that just opened on 83rd or the MarieBelle that landed on 65th, but in all fairness, MarieBelle hasn't quite opened her doors just yet and Vosges is brand spanking new. I know, I'm so excited! It'll save me a few bucks on cabfare to Soho.

Rock Stars
I couldn't resist splurging on these adorable little blingy baubles from Teuscher in Rockefeller Center. Real bits of banana (gold), blueberry (blue), and
amaretto (silver) go down quite luxuriously in yummy swiss dark chocolate ganache. And at $7.50 a pop they don't break the bank quite like Cartier, which is why chocolate is this girl's best friend!

Bring Home The Bacon
Chef Katrina Markoff has outdone herself this time and while I am a fan of smoky hints in my chocolate, I'm hardly a bacon girl, so you'll have to check out what our brave friend at Chocolate Obsession had to say about Vosges brand new Bacon Bar. That's about as close as I dare get to this one!
