Ah, those custom-dipped chocolate beignets! I learned more about them and wanted to share what I found.
I previously mentioned that Chocolee Chocolates is a new chocolate store opening on February 8 in Boston's South End. And during Valentine's Day week, the custom-dipped chocolate beignets will be available on a limited basis.
Today's Boston Globe had an article, "Pastry Chef's Choice" which described the beignets and even provided a smal picture. The beignets do not look like what you get in New Orleans. They more look like large donut holes. They are filled with Callebaut chocolate and Mascarpone cheese. You get several of the beignets and they are drizzled with some chocolate sauce and served with some bourbon spice ice cream.
They sound very tempting. I hope the beignets are served warm. I definitely think I need to check them out very soon.
