Ever since Denise posted Being an Intentional Topekan, I’ve really tried to follow her lead and make a concerted effort to shop local. This weekend Brandon and I stopped by Hazel Hill Chocolates – a homemade chocolate shop located downtown at 7th and Kansas.
One step in the shop, and I immediately felt like a kid again, staring wide-eyed at all of the beautiful handmade candies neatly displayed in cases all over the shop. My husband and I spent our first 10 minutes in the store trying to take in everything Hazel Hill has to offer – a large variety of truffles, hills, stacks, clusters and fudges, various chocolate dipped fruits, and hand-dipped caramel apples. We chatted with store owners, Nick and Terri Xidis, and slowly started making some selections.
We decided to share a Snickers-dipped caramel apple, and each selected a truffle (Amaretto for me and Cappacino for Brandon), and then threw in a haystack for good measure. Everything was so delicious. But, I have to say the Snickers apple is really over-the-top! I’m going to have to make another trip next weekend … if I can last that long.
I would highly recommend Hazel Hill to anyone!
