We dipped into Alison Nelson's Chocolate Bar, which opened yesterday. The new West Village location is directly across the street from the former shop, only this one is roomier and more inviting.
The Chocolate Bar's classic pastries and sweets are still there, including the chocolate chip cookies. After the jump, close-ups of all the other goodies.
Rice Krispie bars—chocolate-coated, of course!
A completely new line of sweets made by pastry chef Gustaf Mabrouk, formerly of Aureole, which included a collection of chocolate truffles.
And what might be the most adorable Mallomars in town.
And because we shouldn't be limited to liquid chocolate during winter months, the hot chocolate comes iced (with whipped cream) for the summer to come.
Oh! And don't forget bites from the atomic collection. The Elvis, pictured here, is a dark chocolate shell harboring homemade banana marshmallows and crunchy peanut butter. Congrats to Alison and welcome back to the neighborhood!
