San Francisco S'mores

I love San Francisco.  It's my second favorite city after Santa Fe.  I could spend days and days there.  The atmosphere, the architecture, the history.  THE CHOCOLATE.  In case you didn't know, San Francisco is the home of  Ghirardelli Chocolate.  The company started there more than 160 years ago, making them America's oldest continuously operating chocolate maker and my personal hero :)  When you visit Ghirardelli Square, the original chocolate manufactory, they give you a square of Ghirardelli chocolate upon your entrance.  You can buy any and all things chocolate-related there.  I have their cookbook and a big tote bag.  If sampling the candy isn't enough for you, they have a soda fountain where you can enjoy all kinds of treats.  My favorite is the Sea Salt Caramel Hot Chocolate.  It is rich and amazing and sprinkled with sea salt and of course one of their signature chocolates with caramel filling is served on the side.  Their Monterey, California location in Cannery Row has a balcony that overlooks the bay.  Sitting outside watching the waves and sipping on that hot chocolate is one of my favorite memories.  Another way we love to reminisce about our San Francisco vacations is enjoying some San Francisco S'Mores.  If you can't make it to Ghirardelli Square, at least you can enjoy a little taste at home! 
A S'more unlike any other.
Quick! Follow that sign!
