Dallas By Chocolate’s Christmas tours whip up a recipe for holiday decadence
The secret ingredient is ... well, chocolate. Or is it the wine?
DALLAS Dallas By Chocolate is kicking off the holiday season with its Christmas Lights, Chocolate and Wine Tour.
The tour offers guests the opportunity to sip on wine or hot chocolate while making stops to sample chocolate treats at local bakeries and chocolatiers throughout Dallas.
The tour also gives attendees a chance to view the holiday lights at Highland Park and Kessler Park.
Tours occur each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through December 30.
The holiday excursion lasts approximately three hours and takes guests to two or three different venues for chocolate samplings.
Dallas by Chocolate also provides other themed-tours for occasions such as birthdays, bachelorette parties, and an upcoming Valentine’s Day tour in January and February that will feature chocolate sweets ranging from truffles to chocolate croissants and cakes.
All tours are conducted by food experts who accompany guests to three or four different venues around in the Dallas area for chocolate and wine pairings. They also introduce participants to local eateries and shops.
The tours stop at destinations in Deep Ellum, Oak Cliff, Carrollton, and Plano. Guests enjoy decadent treats such as dark chocolate truffles, fudge, and bars at a place called Dude, Sweet Chocolate.
Guests also enjoy cake balls at Zen Bistro and a variety of chocolate desserts at The Dark Chocolate Bakery. Throughout the tour, experts provide commentary on various landmarks and neighborhoods in between stops.
Also during the excursion is a chocolate trivia game where winners are awarded sweet prizes.
Dallas by Chocolate tours are $30 and include bus transportation, hot chocolate or coffee, water, two different kinds of wine, and chocolate treats at each destination.
Dallas by Chocolate also offers private tours for groups of 18 to 24 people.
