Chocolate Rocks

If you haven't encountered chocolate rocks before, you'll be surprised at just how much like polished rocks they actually look -- you literally have to bite into them to truly believe they're candy instead of rocks! I first came across chocolate rocks here in Houston, at a dessert shop called The Chocolate Bar, where according to their website, "every hour is happy hour"! (They have 20 or 30 types of chocolate ice cream, and obscenely rich cakes....) In any case, I don't know who actually invented chocolate rocks, but a search online shows a number of different suppliers, such as Duluth Pack. They're sort of an M&M taken to a new place!

What: Chocolate Rocks
Where: Duluth Pack website (or specialty candy stores)
How much (as of today's post): $7.00 for 7.2 oz (plus shipping)
