Eggleston, Virginia (WVVA) --The Palisades Restaurant is known for it's unique atmosphere and offerings, which just got a little sweeter.  "Everybody is very excited that we've got something local, and that we've got our own chocolate line," said Palisades Owner Shaena Muldoon.

Chances are, this isn't the chocolate you grew up on.  "He (Milton Hershey) wanted everyone to be able to enjoy chocolate so the quality of chocolate from Hershey is a lower quality than if you were going to go to Switzerland and buy chocolate," added Devon Giles, the Palisades' Pastry Chef.  Giles studied chocolate-making at DCT University of Switzerland and has now perfected the chocolate making process.  She says, "There are a lot of things that go into making good chocolates, and making great chocolates." 

Giles demonstrates that both patience and preparation, are key.  "One thing I was taught in Switzerland, is that when you take your chocolates out you should always polish your molds."

Then it's time to get into the chocolate, which is tempered for an even texture and flavor.  Giles says "Your working temperature for the chocolate should be about 86-88 degrees Fahrenheit."

Next we carefully brushed the molds.  Finally, pour the chocolate, let it cool and harden and then if everything was done just right it's ready to be packaged and sold. 

Muldoon says, "We'll eventually have it for sale online, and in retail stores around the region."@
