Something sweet for art month. Chocolatier rr chocolats has introduced a line of candy bars designed by artists. Two of the bars feature images by local Chicago artist Kim Hoffman and the candy led us to check out her other work...
Kim got the chocolate gig through a competition, and in looking through the news section of her website, it seems she keeps busy making beautiful things and diplaying them throughout the city.
She makes paintings and prints and her work is accessibly priced. Click on over to madebykim.com to check it out.
Kim created the two candy bar designs above featuring avian imagery. The blue is filled with mango-passionfruit and the orange and green is basil (which sounds amazing in combination with chocolate).
rr chocolates was established by Chef Randall Raaflaub in 2005, here in Chicago. The bars ($8) are available at several local shops, including Binny's, Chalet Wine & Cheese, Southport Grocery and Fox & Obel.
