KAKAO CHOCO­LATE

The choco­latiers here are se­ri­ous about their choco­late con­coc­tions, whether dark, milk, white or even laven­der- or chipo­tle-laden. While the prod­uct may end up whim­si­cal, the kitchen chem­istry is fo­cused on mak­ing un­beat­able prod­ucts: truf­fles, con­fec­tions, barks, drink mixes, ice creams, marsh­mal­lows and more. Open M-Sa 10 am-7 pm, Su noon-5 pm. www.kakao­choco­late.com. 7272 Manch­ester Rd., 314.645.4446. Map 4- 4B.
