Angela Smith, owner of Sweet Eatz, won the “Best Decorated Booth” award as judged by the Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park staff on May 15th at the Big Island Chocolate Festival. Angela provided us a tasty recipe to “continue the party” after the Festival and thus, we are sharing it with you here!
“I serve this recipe and variations of it when I do private chef work or if someone places a special order for it. It can be easily made with local chocolate instead of Valrhona. I have used Waialua Estate from Oahu in the past, as well”, Angela shared. “I just recently opened The Cake Box by Sweet Eatz which offers cake design and production for all occasions including weddings. I also have a healthy meal service called Healthy Eatz Hawaii and last but not least, I do freelance work as a private chef. Sweet Eatz is located on the upper road to Costco by Rainbow Cafe. The physical address is 73-5612 Kauhola Street. The Cake Box is by appointment only, although I am almost always available for drop ins. Healthy Eatz is a pre-order service only. All of the information for ordering can be found on my website at www.healthyeatzhawaii.com.” Angela stated. Mahalo nui loa for this tasty recipe Angela and we look forward to seeing you next year on April 29th, 2017 at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel!
