Over by the Barcelona cathedral and about halfway down a narrow street sits a magical place called the Chocolat-Box, a boutique I would have liked to swallow whole. Could have swallowed whole, in fact. Have a look see.

Several Chocolat-Box shops dot Barcelona. Lucky for me, no? I can now seek chocolate therapy at various spots throughout the city, starting with truffles.

And moving on to enrobed nuts. (Very therapeutic.)

Or going for the real calories: a truly religious experience involving generous amounts of chocolate spread on a hunk of baguette (which the nice ladies behind the counter were only too delighted to provide).

Or is hot chocolate your therapy? How about the perfect spoon, which yields the perfect hot chocolate? (Take your pick.)

And have you heard of chocolate infused herbal teas??  Certain to put some zen in your day.

Olive oil? Mm-hmm.

Yep. It’s all here. Come hungry. Expect enlightenment. Leave a new person. (Promise.)
