Great chocolate desserts and treats in Evanston?

If anyone was curious about the results of our taste test -- at least for the students tasting, Bennison's chocolate rum balls and Al's Deli's cookies were universally panned, but Tag's Florentines were well-received.

Any other suggestions, especially for great cafe-type treats or restaurant chocolate desserts?

Great chocolate desserts and treats in Evanston?

Hi,

I'm an editor for a student publication at Northwestern University. We're rounding up and reviewing 100 top chocolates in the Evanston area (within walking distance of downtown). It can be anything with chocolate: Cakes, brownies, cookies, milkshakes, bars, crepes, etc.

Any suggestions? We'd love to hear 'em! =)

Thanks,
Tom Giratikanon

Places to buy specialty chocolate near Seattle?

These bars range from about $4 to $10, at the places I've visited, though I'm not so much of an expert to give you a breakdown by brand, unfortunately.

Thanks for the tips, everyone!

For all those other North Seattle chocolate fans out there, Central Market in Shoreline and Metropolitan Market in Queen Anne both do sell delicious, delicious Michel Cluizels, though only the dark varieties. They also have limited selection of brands such as Valrhona and Dolfin. The only place I've found Amadei is still Chocolopolis.

Besides Chocolopolis (a long way south from where I live), does anyone know of places in Seattle or North Seattle to buy specialty chocolates like Amedei or Michel Cluizel? I'd like to feed this addiction with a more convenient drive! Thanks.
