Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Wild West Theme Week.

Today's chocolates were from South Dakota.

Mostly Chocolates - Dark Chocolate buffalo
First, there was a large, molded dark chocolate* iconic bison (buffalo) from Mostly Chocolates (Rapid City, SD). This buffalo was dark, delicious and almost creamy in texture.

Chubby Chipmunk, Deadwood, SD
Second, were two chocolate "pattys" from Chubby Chipmunk (Deadwood, SD)—part of a 4-patty series made by this chocolatier based in one of the wildest gold rush towns (at least in the 1800s) in the west.

I enjoyed the Dark Salty Patty (dark chocolate base, caramel in the middle and topped with a mass of dark lines chocolate to contain the buttery, rich caramel and a light touch of salt.

The second Turtle Patty was made with milk chocolate, caramel and pecans and had the flavor and soft chew of a classic caramel milk chocolate and nut turtle confection.

Sadly, I missed getting Chubby Chipmunk's "Calamity Patty," (a reference to famous Deadwood resident, Calamity Jane) with caramel and toffee. And, more sadly still, I lost my camera and memory card that contained pictures of these chocolates and part of the trip.

*The bison (buffalo) was made from Guittard chocolate.
