In the process of planning my wedding reception, I have decided that instead of a groom's cake I would rather have a spread of high quality chocolate tasting squares. I have just begun to get into the "good stuff" and found this site while doing my research. However, I imagine most of my guests will have never tasted really top notch chocolate. Which ones would you guys recommend? I'd prefer to have a fairly wide range of tastes available, but the priority is definitely quality over quantity. Thanks!

There are various things you can do, how about a "chocolate dessert table"? You can offer a range of chocolate tarts, pastries, etc. and include a chocolate fountain or fondue. If you just want to stick to premium bars then if you offer some different bittersweet chocolates paired with a nice port wine for an after dinner acoutrement. Just a thought. Valrhona, ElRey, Domori, are some of my suggestions for premium chocolate.

You might check out http://www.chocosphere.com/. They have a good selection of chocolates and many of them are available in "tasting squares". I have been planning on a chocolate tasting event as a grand opening for my shop (when that will be I have no ideas though).

Also, my company in CO does truffles and caramels in nice little favor sized boxes or on big party trays.

Thanks for all the responses!

I have been looking at chocosphere.com and agree that its selection is pretty good for tasting squares. I haven't been able to find the Domori Porcelana or Puertomar in tasting squares, but I may have to either bite the bullet and buy some full bars. Others I'm considering based on reviews I have read on the site are Amedei Chuao and Madagascar.

I would rather stick to straight chocolate rather than do chocolate based pastries or desserts.

After tasting samples of some different chocolates, I have decided to go with Amedei's Chuao and Madagascar and Domori's Porcelana. The Porcelana isn't tasting square size, so it will have to be broken or cut along its perforations into fourths. Overall, though, I'm very pleased with the selection. It might not have a lot of variety, but it's within my budget, and I really enjoyed all 3 in the tasting.

You might want to offer a delicious Port wine or Merlot with that chocolate, depending, also a good Cabernet Saugvignon would go great as well.
