Beer Market

Today is Kakao’s first second market, which is to say that it’s our first time at our second farmers’ market.

Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 to 7:00, now through the end of October, you’ll find Kakao Chocolate at the Maplewood Farmers’ Market at Schlafly Bottleworks (and, thus, a beer market).

Here’s what we’ll have on our menu:

  • Truffles! Mint with candied lemon peel, Rose Petal and Red Tea, Chile-Vanilla with cocoa nibs and Maker’s Mark Bourbon
  • Dragees (dra-ZHAYS), those amazing almonds, toasted in caramelizing sugar and coated three times with chocolate, then dusted with cocoa powder
  • Caramels — made with real cream, honey and vanilla beans, dipped in chocolate and topped with a touch of sea salt
  • Marshmallow Pies — toasted pecans and chocolate, layered between homemade marshmallow and coated with chocolate (seriously, these are decadent)
  • Brownies — three kinds made from vanilla ganache, mint ganache, and caramel
  • Dark Chocolate Ginger Bark and Milk Chocolate Coffee Bark

For our blog readers, we’ll also have some French Raspberry Liqueur Truffles — be sure to ask for them!
