The French have always been known for their culinary successes. They have long since mastered wine. Their pastry skills are phenomenal. And now, they're breaking some new ground in chocolates -- more specifically, in chocolate-covered strawberries.

Sorry Godiva, but your chocolate-covered strawberries have got nothing on Jean-Charles Rochoux's version. While Godiva's strawberries may make many mouths happy come Valentine's Day, Jean-Charles Rochoux (a Parisian chocolatier) is joining the ranks of new chocolate artisans who are redefining classic confections such as this one.

This chocolate-covered strawberry bar, named the Ephemeral Chocolate Bar, is part of Jean-Charles Rochoux's temporary collection. And given the, well, ephemeral nature of these chocolates, you can't order them online. But if you should happen to find yourself on a trip to Paris, walking through the sixth arrondissement, you should make a stop into this little chocolate boutique. And until then, you can always try to make them at home.
