I attended the 15th anniversary of the Chocolate Show New York a few weeks ago. It is always a great show, they had a few vendors that had to cancel due to Sandy, but had close to 50 that did attend to show their confections. I made the ride into the city with Cameo House Tours, run by my godparents, who introduced me to New York City at a young age.
These lovely ladies were working the Chocolate Show Boutique, which sold I love chocolate bracelets. They were a great welcome as soon as you walked into the show.
Macaron necklaces were calling my name but I just kept walking (so darn adorable)
These truffles are one of the best at the show, and I believe they are 3 boxes for $15.00, which you cannot beat at all. They melt in your mouth. Never chew a truffle, is what I have been told.
Francois Payard and his amazing french macarons

This was all hand made, and edible, for a baby shower by Les Cinq Amandes or The Five Almonds, and I couldn't stop staring at it
