Chamak Chocolates Takes Edible Art to a New Level

It's rare that I describe something as "too pretty to eat," and I have to admit, when I do, I'm usually exaggerating, especially if I'm talking about anything sweet. My hunger for chocolate, candy, and baked goods is so rapacious, I really can't be satisfied with merely admiring a dessert. Consumption is how I show my love and respect. To food, I mean. (No cannibal here, no thank you.)
The offerings at Chamak Chocolates have posed the strongest challenge to this practice in recent history. They are so lovely that I stared at them for a full 24 hours, then I willed myself to eat them only after my husband noted their lasting beauty may be hiding declining freshness.
