The Top Ten Places for Chocolate

Excerpted from the book Food Journeys of a Lifetime, NatGeo Traveler's new food section brings us a list of the best places in the world to find chocolate -or should that be the places in the world to find the best chocolate? Either way, it's mouth-watering time. For example, you should know where to get chocolate at 4AM in Madrid.
Few institutions offer better evidence of Madrid’s insomnia than its perennially popular chocolaterías (also known as churrerías), typically abuzz with late-night revelers from 4 a.m. to breakfast time. Their trademark dish is the churro, a long waffle-like stick of savory fried dough, eaten dunked into very thick bittersweet hot chocolate. Stop in at the venerable Chocolatería San Ginés, an 1894 throwback. Expect entertainingly brusque service, bright lights, and a frenzied atmosphere.
Planning: Chocolatería San Ginés is downtown on Pasadizo San Ginés. It's open all night.

And that's just number eight on the list. Link -Thanks, Marilyn Terrell!

This isn't the best place to get chocolate, but I live one mile from an M&M/Mars factory. Many days I can walk out of my house and smell chocolate in the air. The best days are when they make the Twix.

My favorite place for chocolate is a West Coast chain restaurant called Claim Jumper. The best dessert I've ever had is their Chocolate Chip Calzone. You place your order for it near the end of your meal, because they bring the calzone hot to your table. It is pizza dough with white & dark chocolate chips melted inside, served with fresh whipped cream and vanilla ice cream. It's so rich, you'll want to make sure people are there to share it with. So amazing.
