Sure, the sleekly modern interior of Christopher Elbow’s boutique is worth a second look. But just try and peel your eyes away from a tantalizing glass case filled with exquisite hand-painted chocolates graced with unexpected flavors like champagne, lime, and cinnamon.
During the winter, a sinfully rich cup of Christopher Elbow’s drinking chocolate is a must, with a handmade marshmallow garnish instead of whipped cream.
Kansas City ’s celebrated chocolatier also makes delicately sugared pate de fruits and lightly dusted truffles, perfect for satisfying any sweet tooth.
