On a recent site inspection at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay we learned it’s an amazing place for chocolate lovers.  Among the large array of amenities and activities the hotel boasts an outdoor hot chocolate bar, chocolate tastings in the wine bar ENO and s'mores kits for roasting marshmallows in the outdoor fire pits.  We were treated to Spiced Chocolate Chunk cookies on our tour and brought back the recipe with us.  Don't forget to check out the hotel HERE
