    What ever you do DONT leave brussels without a few extra chocolates in the backpack.

    It might be a little more expensive but the smaller chocolate shops are definately worth a look, and just try leaving there without buying something...

    If you leave belgium without having a belgian waffle I will be very disappointed in you. There are 2 kinds: the liege and the brussels. I prefer the liege (it has chunks of sugar. mmm) The brussels is good too if you get icecream on it. Or strawberries with whipped cream. sooo good.
    Don't forget belgian chocolates! My favorite being leonitas (sp?!) Godiva is good too though. Just be sure to avoid getting marsipan (sp?) in them cuz that stuff is just nasty. Also some have alcohol.. just so you know.

  • Chocolate Quest! There are...

    Chocolate Quest! There are some fantastic chocolate shops throughout Brussels. Buy some at each, and choose your favorite! For starters: Neuhaus, Godiva and Leonidas. (Leonidas is my personal favorite.)
    If you are from the US: European chocolate makers call all filled chocolates 'pralines'. This is not the Southern US version of a praline, which is made with caramel and nuts (no chocolate).

    Explanation in English how chocolates are made. Chocolate melted to the right temperature (about 34 degr. Celsius), the outer layer, filling and bottom.

    Treat yourself to some Belgian chocolate......much better than Godiva, I must say!! There are many shops throughout Brussels, but this one is in the the Grand Place next to the Maison du Roi.
