Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week. The Oakland Chocolate Co. (based, fittingly enough, in Oakland, CA), offers a variety of chocolates, using fresh flavors and ingredients, including at this hand-rolled Coconut Crunch truffle.

Nancy Nadel, the owner and chief chocolatier at this bean-to-bar-to-bonbon company, uses dark chocolate from a single region (St. Mary's Parish) in Jamaica, for truffles, filled and molded chocolates, drops, and chocolate dipped fruit pieces.
