It's tough for me to pass up a chocolate shop.

While walking around Charleston, South Carolina, I stumbled upon Christophe Artisan Chocolatier.

Christopher’s Artisan Chocolates
This shop is well-known for their handpainted chocolates - many of which inspire galactic images for me.

But they also have classic truffles - like vanilla bean, star anise and more.

And they have more than chocolate: coffee, croissants, macarons, pastries and more.

So I wanted to try a few different things.

First, I went for a praline macaron! Can never go wrong with a macaron.

Then I tried the salted caramel hand-painted chocolate.

Finally, I tried a canele, which is a small French pastry flavored with rum and vanilla with a soft and tender custard center and a dark, thick caramelized crust. It takes the shape of a small, striated cylinder up to five centimeters in height with a depression at the top, according to Wikipedia.

Everything was delicious.
