Dandelion Chocolate's Main Ingredient Exposed

From cacao bean to bar

dandelion chocolate!

Guess who just arrived at the Dandelion Chocolate mansion?

Tipsters report that a very sun-roasted Miss Dominican Republic and in-demand Madagascar are shacking up in the sweet new spot.

The cacao party’s not open to the public until tomorrow, but leaked photos have the gossip mill churning. The interior? Purposefully minimalist. Think exposed brick, a cozy cafe and retail space (sweet, but always elite), plus a full view of the factory (beans on the rise love an audience).

Natural beauties never stay single for long. They’ve reportedly already hooked up with a pastry chef (stay tuned for a menu of brownies, hot chocolate, and more decadent treats in the coming weeks) and tapped some of the Bay Area’s top chocolatiers for collaborative confections.

How do they do it? Take one of the monthly Chocolate 101 classes to find out.

That’s show beans for you.
