The Chocolate Tarte

31 May

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend! Summer is certainly coming in with a BANG!

A few weeks ago I got the chance to check out The Chocolate Tarte which is located just outside Davis Sq with a couple of other fantastic bloggers. I don’t normally hang out around Davis Sq because I live so far away but whenever I get the chance to get out there I love it. Definitely my favorite square in Somerville.

Before consuming vast amounts of chocolate and baked good I checked out Highland Kitchen with Kathy. Oh man, was it good. Even though we didn’t order much, we still managed to not finish everything!

You know with a sign like this on the front, good things are coming. The owner, Linda Hein is a TOTAL sweetheart. You can totally tell she loves what she does. We got to sample so many delicious things, I’m just going to let the pictures do the talking.

Red velvet cake. So pretty.

Even pretty on the inside. And freaking delicious.

I heart mini cupcake. Red velvet, chocolate and WHITE velvet. Holy smokes, I would like 5000 of the white velvet cupcakes. Please and thanks.

Dark chocolate truffles. Oh. Man. So smooth. So chocolatey. Very difficult not to consume everything.

More chocolate. More love. Powdered sugar. Om nom nom.

Chocolate and rosemary tart. GENIUS. I need to combine chocolate with herbs more often.

Ice cream from SoCo Creamery. FIG ICE CREAM. OH EM GEE. Subtle, yet full of amazing flavor.

Not pictures, there were some delicious chocolates filled with such amazing things as tequila, anise, more chocolate, and lots more.

Basically, when you need or want a delicious confectionery treat, head over to the Chocolate Tarte and you will NOT be disappointed!

    Even though I feel like we had some intense sugar overload that night, I still wish I could’ve eaten more! haha. I fell in love with the truffles and the chocolate with tequila – yum!
