Restaurant talk: CoCoAndré’s whimsical chocolates

We stopped into CoCoAndré Thursday night during the cocktail crawl, and we found the accessory of the season: a chocolate moustache. Cindy Pedraza, who owns the shop with her mom, chocolatier Andrea Pedraza, says it’s the No. 1 seller right now. At $2.50 a pop, these chocolate ‘staches are loads of fun. Advocate art director Julianne Rice models the dark chocolate one here, but white and milk chocolate varieties also are available.

Aside from that, CoCoAndré has chocolate high heels filled with hand-made truffles, which sell for about $33. And there are more traditional Easter treats like chicks and bunnies starting at around $6.50. Plus, they have choco-pops with bicycles, motorcycles and other fun designs.

And the hand-made truffles are awesome.
