The theme of the San Diego County Fair this year was "Out of this World" all space and science fiction stuff. Sci-fi isn't really my thing (I'm a romantic comedy or British classics type of girl) but even I got into the fun and I won 2nd place in the Candy Box Division for my Out of this World Chocolate Box filled with all Sugar Free Homemade Chocolates.
Top Left: "Total Eclipse of the Sun" - Sugar free dark chocolate dipped dried apricots
Top Right: "Bark at the Moon" - Sugar free white chocolate toasted pistachio and cranberry bark
Bottom Left: "Protein Planets" - You all know these as Shelly's Espresso Protein Truffles
Bottom Right: "Moon Rocks" - Sugar free dark chocolate with toasted unsweetened coconut and almonds
If you are a local SoCal pal and headed to the fair be sure to hit one of the gift shops or gift tents and pick up this year's fair cookbook where my last year's first place winning Ghirardelli Chocolate Covered Cherry Protein Smoothie (it's weight loss surgery friendly too) is featured on page 36.
