Hunt for Quebec's best chocolatiersSept 16, 2016 - When I attended the Je t'aime en chocolat show held at Marche Bonsecours on Feb 5-7, 2016, I made it a mission to find the best chocolaterie in Quebec. Ronan and I started this quest and our mission took us to places like Cacao 70 and Chocolats Genevieve Grandbois.
C'Chocolat in Montreal
My sister is happiest near chocolate, hehe.
Ah, but I digress. I am sure you are reading this entry to find out more about C'Chocolat and its renowned chocolate bomb. Take a gander at the instagram video below.
Fancy some chocolate?

...Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce C'Wow, a 70% chocolate dome filled with pieces of C'Chocolat's Liege waffle, brownie, gelato, crumble, mixed berries, and pecans. Don't let my sister's excited hmms distract you from taking in all that gooey chocolate-y goodness.
So, what is our verdict when it comes to C'Wow, C'Chocolate's chocolate bomb dessert? It was incredibly rich, luscious, and wonderfully creamy. I wouldn't recommend eating it all to yourself - not that I would judge. I have to emphasize that the dome is a lot for one person! My sister and I struggled to finish the one we shared. I do have to give the warning that it is packed full of sugar (yah, I know, duh) which means if you are not accustomed to that much sugar like me (dietary restrictions at home, remember?), you may feel a bit woozy after eating a huge helping. So, just stressing this again, it's best to share.
The C'wow post-caramel
Ronan had a Chocolate Soufflé. He does not even know what a soufflé is but he ordered it anyway. I admit that I didn't sample a bite since I already had more than my sugar fill after the C'Wow. My sister, however, tasted it and both Ronan and her gave it a two thumbs up. My sister describes it had a light airy quality to it that made the chocolate taste all the more delicious.

We went during a weekday (early lunch) and beat the crowds
My sister Alessa and Ronan were busy trying to catch Pokemon (free wifi in C'Chocolat)
Love the view of the charming older houses outside of C'Chocolat
The chocolate show held at Marche Bonsecours has inspired me to start a quest to find the best chocolatier in Quebec. There were so many remarkable chocolatiers offering tasty and unique chocolate concoctions. Je t'aime en chocolate introduced me to chocolatiers who I have not heard of previously. I realized I barely scratched the surface when it comes to trying chocolate shops in Quebec. So, my readers, help me out and time to start hunting!
How can you get involved in this quest for the best chocolatier? Use hashtag #circuslivingchocolatiers on instagram, facebook, and twitter to tag chocolatiers you have visited worth mentioning, and maybe, just maybe, we will pay them a visit and feature them on the blog!
