TIPsy Tuesday - Chocolate for Cinco De Mayo

In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I thought I would blog about one of my favorite places in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Todos Santos Chocolates and Confections. Owner and self taught chocolatier, Hayward Simoneaux has a quaint little shop in the heart of Santa Fe and offers these extraordinary and delectable chocolate Milagros. Talk about chocolate as a religion!

Hayward uses Milagros not only to convey the culture that he lives in but to give chocoholics and others little miracles in every bite of his creations. His chocolates are masterfully and delicately covered with a thin veneer of 23-carat edible gold or silver leaf and infused with such flavors as chili and peppercorn. These chocolate Milagros are his signature pieces and it looks more like artwork than something edible. Once you take a bite...you'll know you have gone to heaven.

He packages his creations in great "Mexican" themed papers tying all of his products to a very fun and distinctive look. These chocolates would make great party favors for a Day of the Dead or Cinco de Mayo Party or just for the heck of it. Additionally brides and party throwers can use these chocolates to wish happiness and miracles in the lives of their guests.

Todos Santos Chocolates and Confections can be reached at (505) 982-3855 or by visiting their showroom in Santa Fe's Sena Plaza at 125 East Palace Avenue #31, Santa Fe, New Mexico, 87501. They do not have a Website so make a pilgrimage to this holiest of holy chocolate places or call and have them mail you their mouth watering wonders.
