Craving something decadent and sinful to get me through the day,
I departed the Style office and headed to Historic Folsom for a sweet treat from Snooks Chocolate Factory, a family-run chocolate and candy shop since 1963.
The moment I entered, aromas of fine chocolate filled my nose. An expansive glass case – featuring a multitude of desserts on display – was positioned next to an ice cream bar; drinks and other candies were presented throughout the store. After five minutes of contemplating whether I wanted chocolate, taffy, peanut brittle...or everything, I realized I was longing for something covered in soft, chewy caramel and settled on the Pecan Roll. The roll weighed in at nearly half a pound, which afforded me plenty of sugary indulgence without buying every treat on display. The creamy caramel center juxtaposed with the oven-roasted pecans scored a perfect 10 with its marriage of salty and sweet. I had the roll sliced into small pieces – making it perfect to share. Next time you’re perusing Sutter Street and find your sweet tooth throbbing, stop in at Snooks. Snooks Chocolate Factory, 731 Sutter Street, Folsom. 916-985-0620, snookscandies.com.
