I had Christmas with my F3 again this year and I received some beer, wine and fancy chocolate.
One of them is the monstrous peanut butter cup pictured above and the other was something called a coconut fantasy (essentially a glorified, dense Mounds bar) which isn’t pictured because I ate it already.
They come from a local chocolate place called Extreme Chocolates in Salem, which is still the abode of my F3 as he sets up his law practice.
By the way if you need a lawyer in the Oregon area, here is their website: http://www.mastandunolaw.com/
Anyways, the peanut butter cup was quite delicious.
It had a softer approach that was different from the Reese’s classic, and we would hope so because this is a gourmet chocolaterie.
There is a thick dark chocolate shell that gives way to a smooth pale peanut butter center.
It also is dusted with blanched peanuts on top.
These treats have inspired me to try the other creations they have at the store. So I might bug my F3 to take me there next time I am in Salem.
Extreme chocolates has a really interesting website because they have great pictures of sweet confections, special events and recipes that put cocoa and meat entrees together.

And stay tuned for when I actually visit the shop!
