The Practical Cook on Location at the Chocolate Tree (with video)

Gentle Readers, this post is nothing short than a love note to chocolate. It wouldn’t be practical to make it myself, for so many reasons, so I must go forth and sample the chocolate the world has to offer. The Practical Cook hopes you appreciate her sacrifice. Roll the tape.

While on location in Beaufort, SC, The Practical Cook always visits The Chocolate Tree. It’s amazing. These folks are creative and skilled, sitting happily at the crossroads of humor and chocolate.

Watch the video to see the infamous white chocolate deviled egg consumed. It was good, but surprising. Do you have a favorite local chocolate shop? Post a comment or send a Tweet.
