Stuff Yourself With Gourmet Chocolate This Friday At Katherine Anne Confections

By Anthony Todd in Food on Jan 23, 2013 4:00PM


It's cold. Really cold. You know happens when it's cold? Your body has to burn calories to warm you up. When your body burns all of your calories, you get angry and skinny and start to starve. The best way we know to beat that: eat a ton of really, really good chocolate at Katherine Anne Confections.

This Friday, Jan. 25 at 5:30 p.m., Katherine Duncan is rolling out all of her February truffles and caramels. The full list is below, and they look great. For just $25, you get to taste all the truffles, plus appetizers from FIG Catering and wines from Provenance. We dare you to find another deal that good.

A few of the truffles feature our new favorite libations from Illinois Sparkling Company. If you're longing for summer, try a strawberry, champagne and thyme truffle. Maybe you can forget it's winter for a few minutes. If you want something more warming, how about a Maker's Mark caramel?
