Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

2013 Taste of Solvang Pro Winner Dessert-Ingeborgs Dark-Light TrufflesYou know that Valentine’s Day is this Friday, February 14—and shopping and presenting your sweetheart with a treat is a delicious way to show you care! Solvang satisfies sweet cravings year-round yet right now, if you’re like me, you want chocolate! Discover family-owned/operated Ingeborg’s Danish Chocolates that has been using authentic recipes for handmade confections since 1961 (how can you possibly choose between truffles made with raspberry or rum or mocha or amaretto or chocolate mousse?) Also founded in 1961 (was that the Year of Chocolate?) is the Old Danish Fudge Kitchen that makes the real deal using a massive copper pot heated over a gas-burning stove mixing 25-pound batches with all-natural ingredients; then poured onto marble tables for cooling (you can watch and sample, try the chocolate peanut butter or yummy dark chocolate.) And if you can’t make it to town in person right now, both of these shops will ship direct to you! And of course, Solvang’s five authentic Danish bakeries have plenty of chocolate options—my personal favorite is the Sarah Bernhardt cookie with an almond macaroon base, topped with chocolate filling and covered in melted chocolate! Chocoholics unite right here in Solvang! Visit  for delicious details and check out this video:
