In honor of the "American Eat Chocolate Week," we've rounded up a few suggestions on how to celebrate this oh-so-difficult holiday. You already know where to have your cake and eat it, too, but if you're interested in chocolate of a different form, check out one of these.
White Chocolate Grill: You can sort of guess what this establishment specializes in, but if not, the fact that desserts are listed first on the menu ought to clue you in. Try the French White Chocolate Bread Pudding ($7.59) -- fresh croissants, Godiva white chocolate liquer and golden raisins, topped with caramel and white chocolate sauces -- or the Silky Chocolate Soufflé Cake ($7.59) served with créme Anglaise and whipped topping.
8421 Park Meadows Drive, Lone Tree; 303-799-4841
Roberta's Chocolates: Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, truffles, nonpareils ... whatever you guilty pleasure, you'll find a form of it in this gourmet sweet shop, many in individual servings. For a treat to share, pick up a chocolate pizza, including the three and a half pound "Hot Stuff" -- a white chocolate pizza smothered in red hots, hot tamales, cinnamon popcorn and topped with a bit more chocolate -- or a "S'mores" pizza pie created with all the usual suspects.
4840 W. 29th Ave.; 303-824-2069
Tryst Lounge: On the chance you like your chocolate in liquid form, stop in at Tryst for their signature Trystini by Van Gogh ($8.50): Van Gogh vodka, Godiva white and dark chocolate, Chambord, Frangelico and strawberry juice. This decadent drink will satisfy your chocolate cravings. For those with a die-hard sweet tooth -- sip slowly; you may not taste the alcohol but you'll feel it soon enough.
