Chocolate anyone?

I know that just a few chocolate lovers may read my blog. So please be careful not to drool onto your keyboards. Our 4-H group went on a wonderful field trip today. We were able to go into the production building of Baker's Chocolate. They produce a very high quality chocolate in this building and I can say that it is very creamy and has a wonderful taste. This is the machine that the melted chocolate is pumped onto and then it is quickly cooled down.
Here is where the chocolate is sliced and diced then covered with a very creamy melt in your mouth chocolate. The inner chocolate is harder and that is what they add the flavor to.
Pre-coated chocolates. Yum!
Constence is looking into a large box of chocolate. Does anyone need a chocolate fix?
These are the final products before they are wrapped. Of course we did not leave without buying any of their delicious goodies. I pick up some champagne dark chocolate raspberry meltaways and some milk chocolate raspberry meltways. Wouldn't you know it, my two daughter like the dark chocolate. You can click on the title to go to their web page.

Wow, what a great field trip!! I should arrange a field trip to the local chocolate factory around here sometime! Hey, have you ever seen the story of Rack, Shack and Benny? :)

Yes, I have seen that movie and I can say that there was not a gaint bunny at this factory. Otherwise we would have been in the firey furnace. Ha Ha!

The raspberry champagne chocolates sound divine.

Any chance you can bring some to Mamapalooza Sioux City? Don't you think we should have a chocolate tasting?

Definatly! Of course homeschooling Moms will need to have a chocolate tasting. I will pick something special for the mamapaloza.
