Along Glendale Boulevard, in the tiny area of Atwater Village, hides a small bakery bursting at the seams with delicious chocolate treats. Chocolate that is packed with such a rich flavor and punch you’d swear you had died and gone to chocolate heaven. Trust me on this!
Sweets for the Soul, is a hidden gem full of delectable chocolate treats. Run by a former television producer and breast cancer survivor whose life long affection for baking finally became a reality when she decided life was to short, go out and do what you love! And that is especially true when it comes to indulging in chocolate! You can taste the handmade love and goodness in each bite.Brownies, cupcakes and my favorite, the Brownie Shots are just a few of the items on this bakery’s menu. Made “exclusively with Valrhona chocolate, farmer’s market eggs, organic flour and spices and the purest of other ingredients” these chocolate treats melt in your mouth.
If you want to try a different take on the brownie, the Brownie Shot is a good choice that comes in various flavors. The “Hotter Shot” made with cayenne, cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger was tasty. Full of flavor and a little heat, this is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy! If you are looking to step out of the brownie realm, try the Billionaire Bliss; a shortbread cookie topped with Madagascar chocolate, caramel, and Fleur de sel. Who doesn’t like chocolate and salt?!?!
Guaranteed to make your heart sing tunes of blissful chocolate joy, Sweets for the Soul is a bakery that you will go back to again and again and I can guarantee each time will be a little sweeter!
