Jacques Torres on the Upper West Side

Jacques Torres is known as Mr. Chocolate and has earned that title over the years. His shop on the Upper West Side is really adorable and inside you will find some of the BEST chocolate in the world!! In the warmer months, he even has homemade ice cream to all visitors delight!!

You can also find here chocolate covered cheerios and corn flakes. Yes, you read this correctly. Yes, they are pretty amazing and would make great gifts to bring back home. He even ships them to you from his website. Happy Day!!

The inside decor is really lovely, very elegant. The chocolate deserves to be in such a setting.
How can you choose just one item here? Pretty hard, which is why you need to come back more than once. His cookies are out-of-this-world. You can purchase his chocolate to add to your own cookie recipe and make it sublime.
Chocolate bars in very unique flavors and names you will find here. I love when you walk in a shop like this and it makes you smile at every turn. I think that is what shopping in New York City is all about, smiles!!

More cookies. Life should be all about cookies, don't you think? And a big glass of milk as I am really a big milk drinker. Speaking of milk, he makes what he calls "Wicked Hot Chocolate". I told you this guy was amazing, didn't I? He has many locations within the city, but I find this shop on the Upper West Side quite fabulous. When I am in the area, I am sure I will be stopping in for some type of grand chocolate creation.

 You can always pick up some gorgeous flowers to go with your candy at Daisy Flower Shop and then, you are set for the night. Chocolate, flowers make a happy person. We all need some happiness in our lives!!

Today's Words of Wisdom: “My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake. I feel better already.” ― Dave Barry
