My friend Rhonda and I love to have adventures. Today was one of the days we decided to have one. Only Rhonda calls our adventures "field trips." I bet you can guess what Rhonda's profession is.
After dropping off two huge bags of toys at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, we decided to explore Atwater Village, and I'm glad we did. I couldn't ask for a better "field trip" buddy! One of our stops was Sweets for the Soul. Owner Lilly LaBonge, who bakes
the perfect brownie, is a former tv commercial producer. Her gourmet brownies are made using French Valrhona chocolates and all fresh high quality organic ingredients. Brownies are creamy, rich and there is a wide variety to choose from. We
especially enjoyed the homemade Tootsie Rolls! Try the Billionaire's Bliss ($3.25), an amazing shortbread cookie bar topped with Madagascar chocolate, caramel and fleur de sel. This is the way to use sea salt my friends! Chocolate Chip cookies ($1.85) are
big and beautiful! Madagascar dark chocolate chips are packed into a dairy-free flavorful tasty treat. The Salted Caramel Shot ($2.85) is not to be missed either. Shots are simply "bite-sized balls of goodness." This shot is a cocoa based brownie with a fleur
de sel caramel on top. The brownie is so good that I was willing to part with the caramel. With so many amazing choices like Peanut Butter Shots (Organic peanut butter topped with organic peanut brittle) and the Obama Brownie (cocoa base with white and dark
chocolate chips), we can't wait to come back! We're getting our permission slips ready, because the next field trip is coming soon! Sweets for the Soul 3169 Glendale Blvd. Los Angeles (Atwater Village) (323) 668-9338. Hours: Tues-Wed:
11 a.m.-8 p.m. Thurs.-Sat: 11 a.m.- 8 p.m. Sun: 12 p.m.-6 p.m.
