* About Chuao Chocolate Chuao Chocolatier (pronounced chew-WOW) is the first Venezuelan Chocolatier based in the United States and Southern California’s premier artisan chocolatier.
Founded in 2002 by Master Chef Michael Antonorsi and his brother Richard Antonorsi – the company’s Chairman of the Board; Chuao Chocolatier is known for creatively blending ethically sourced cacao and the finest all-natural ingredients into gourmet handcrafted chocolate.
The Venezuelan born brothers, now San Diego residents, named the company Chuao Chocolatier after the legendary cacao-producing region of Chuao (pronounced chew-WOW) located in central Venezuela. The Antonorsi’s decision was a reflection of their commitment to both high quality and their Venezuelan family heritage. Chocolate is part of their roots, as their ancestors once ran a small family farm that was an important part of the criollo cacao plantation industry.
Initially, the company started with a single boutique in Encinitas, CA featuring a one-of-a-kind confectionery menu of chocolate bars, bonbons, truffles and hot chocolate. Their signature flavor was Spicy Maya, a modern twist on the Mayan’s ancient hot chocolate recipe made with pasilla chile and cayenne pepper. At both of the Southern California Chuao Chocolatier cafes & boutiques, patrons delight in a menu of luscious bonbons & truffles, innovative chocolate bars, luxurious sipping chocolates, exotic gelato and sorbet flavors and decadent seasonal creations.
Unusual flavor combinations are at the heart of Chuao Chocolatier’s unique experience including: Firecracker, a chipotle caramel fudge truffle with popping candy,
a hint of salt, and dark chocolate and Pan Con Chocolate, a dark chocolate bonbon filled with roasted Panko bread crumbs and olive oil ganache with a touch of sea salt.
Chuao Chocolatier has expanded the menu to include numerous drinking Chocolates , pastries, gelatos and decadent seasonal creations. They now own and operate two chocolate cafes in San Diego county.
Today, you can discover Chuao Chocolatier chocolate confections around the United States at fine specialty retailers including Whole Foods Market, Dean and Deluca, and Crate & Barrel, as well as fine restaurants & hotels including Omni Hotels nationwide, La Costa Resort & Spa, Coupa Cafe, and Hard Rock Hotel.

I and the kidlets were so excited when this arrived they could not wait to set it to their own taste in music, We have Music on Demand on our TV, so we tried it with various type of music from Classic Rock, to Pop Rock and even turned on a little Country Twang and you could see the lights flickering with the beat of the music, though I do recommend that it is best to view in low lighting areas and keep it close to the speakers, With the holidays approaching we set the music to Christmas theme and were gleefully met by an array of colors and lights. So if you are looking to add some cheer to your next get together please check out the LightShow DJ, at my house we truly enjoyed and we think you would too.

Can you believe that in 49 More days Christmas will be upon us, I’m slowly getting gifts for the family, With the kidlets being older it gets more and more of a guessing game with them. One week they want this and the next it is something different . I know that Thanksgiving is close too and that means that stores on and offline will be getting their massive deals coming out soon, Personally I’m not the type that will wait in line for bargains , I prefer to shop on line or go to the stores when all the hustle and bustle of the crowds are down to a minimum. I’ve noticed that Christmas decor and music are being shoved in our faces, I understand that it is that “time ” of year but it seems like each year it starts earlier. I’m not a grinch I just want to enjoy Halloween and Thanksgiving with out being persuaded to rush the next holiday. I hope you all have a Blessed Day ~Laura
Wonderful weather continues and that means no need for the air conditioner ,Yes even during the “winter” months here in FL we may need to use it, But so far for the past 4 days we have not had it on, My budget and wallet will be pleased. I truly enjoy opening the windows and letting fresh air come in the house. Not much going on today with the exception of cleaning and doing some grocery shopping to prepare for Thanksgiving, Though this year will most likely be just the 5 of us, Hubby , I and the three kidlets, That is fine means less cooking and we can pass out from our food overload in the comfort of our house, Wishing you all a Blessed Day . Laura
