frida and fresh coconut

i am always grateful for a new taste temptation, especially a chocolate one.

the local and exotic market inspiration behind each handmade truffle at roni-sue's is reason enough to sample all the flavors.

i started with Frida, followed by fresh coconut and passion and was offered a perfect chocolate rose.

it was only after i had left to walk up Forsyth street in search of cw pencil enterprise that i realized i had to backtrack a few blocks to find my intended destination. 

mistakes in new york can be serendipitous, not to mention delicious.

a return visit is in order to try the caramel corn and buttercrunch or to enjoy a "make and take" class on the premises.

please read more about roni-sue's inspiring story
