Valentine’s Sweet Treats for Your Sweetheart

2013 Taste of Solvang Pro Winner Dessert-Ingeborgs Dark-Light TrufflesYou already know that Valentine’s Day is this Saturday, February 14, right? Have you shopped for something special for your sweetheart yet? Sharing a sweet treat is a delicious way to show you care—and it’s so easy to do in Solvang since this is the place to satisfy sweet cravings year-round. Right now, I’ll bet you’re probably craving 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 (what was going on that year?) 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.) And if you can’t make it to town in person right now, both of these shops will ship direct to your sweetheart!
