One of the great charms—if you will—of Baltimore is that for how small it sometimes seems, it’s actually full of surprises. And since so many folks are finding Baltimore to be a great place to start a small business, those surprises often take the form of smart and talented entrepreneurs—and the fabulous creations they’ve brought with them. One new local treasure is Charm School Chocolates (and its chef—the perfectly charming Josh Rosen, whom you might have seen last week on the Food Network’s Sweet Genius [um, footnote: he won!]). Smartly, Ma Petite Shoe (our favorite spot for an unparalleled selection of gourmet chocolates from around the world) has jumped at the opportunity to be one of the first Baltimore retailers to offer Charm School Chocolates—and boy, are we grateful. Josh will be at Ma Petite Shoe this Friday for the store’s weekly Chocolate Happy Hour from 6pm-9pm.

Headquartered in Reisterstown, Charm School Chocolates specializes in vegan chocolates—that means absolutely no dairy, egg, or gelatin is ever used. The chocolates are made without high fructose corn syrup, or refined sugar, and strives to use as many organic ingredients as possible. If this leaves you asking, Well then what is in this chocolate? we recommend that you just bite into the stuff.Take it from someone who knows: Susannah Siger, of Ma Petite Shoe, says of his Vanilla Bean Rice Crisp Bark, “It’s by far the best white chocolate I’ve ever tasted. Now there’s an endorsement from someone who presumably has tasted quite a bit, given her line of work. At the Chocolate Happy Hour, Josh will be sampling a variety of his products (with soy-nog on the side, of course), and answering all of your questions about how in the world he’s managed to work this confectionery magic.

Ma Petite Shoe is located at 832 W. 36th Street in Hampden. The Chocolate Happy Hour takes place on Friday, December 14th from 6pm-9pm. In addition to that event, the 14th is also the 7th day of Ma Petite Shoe’s “12 Days of Awesomeness” where shoppers will be able to get 10 % off a chosen brand, not to be revealed until the day before.
