Pick of the Month
As January temperatures plunge, you may begin to feel as if you are living in the Arctic instead of Oklahoma. So why not indulge in a Polar Bear truffle this month? You will find these gourmet treats at chocolatier Steven Howard’s newest KoKoa location in Utica Square. The truffles also are available at KoKoa’s other two locations on Brookside and downtown.
“They are probably my biggest seller,” Howard says.
Each is hand made with ivory chocolate, fresh vanilla bean, peppermint and fresh cream, which is then rolled in dark chocolate — because polar bears have dark skin, Howard says — and shaved white chocolate. $2.50 per truffle.
1722 Utica Square, 742-7944; 3410 S. Peoria Ave., Suite 200, 742-4069; 510 S. Boston Ave., 592-5656.
