Pretty Chocolate Bars

I came across these chocolate bars when I was in NYC last summer and shopping at Murray's Cheese Shop. I was taken by how beautiful the wrappings were, and upon closer inspection I noticed that they were made in Brooklyn! Chalk up yet another one for my home city!

They are the masterpieces of Mast Brothers Chocolates. The talented brothers are making this fine chocolate in Williamsburg. They come from a combined background of food, music, film and finance. It's so great to see the love of chocolate being turned into a successful business! The paper they use to wrap the chocolate is Florentine paper and rumor has it they will soon be using papers designed by local artists. Meanwhile the chocolate can be ordered online at their website or through Murray's Cheese Shop and can be found at various shops and restaurants around the country. ( see their website for details!) I noticed that Thomas Keller is serving it at Per Se and The French it must be good!

Here are some of the flavors to try:

Single Origin, Madagascar 72%
Dark chocolate with Fleur de Sel
Dark Chocolate with Almonds and Sea Salt
Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs
