Discover and indulge yourself (while purchasing memorable holiday gifts) at four Los Angeles chocolate confectioneries. Led by choc-holic John Powers, you will begin your day at the mothership of See’s Candies stores on La Cienega Boulevard. Next, tour Letterpress Chocolates, one of only three bean-to-bar manufacturers in the city – that is, chocolatiers who process their own cocoa beans. Here, every step of the chocolate making process is done on site. Next, explore the Hungarian chocolate tradition at K Chocolatier in Beverly Hills where Diane Kron brings her family tradition to the U.S. with crisp rice chocolate bears, rum truffles, and much more. Finally, if there can be a finally with chocolate, indulge at landmark Edelweiss Chocolates known for its vintage equipment, much of which dates back to 1942 when the shop first opened. Their enrobing machine, which is still in use, famously inspired the I Love Lucy chocolate-making conveyer belt fiasco. Excursion fee includes factory tour and tasting fees. Depart: El Camino College lot J (in front of the Marsee auditorium) @ 9:00AM, Return: 4:00PM.
