|Every six months or so, San Francisco chocolatier Michael Recchiuti adds a new Bay Area artist to his Artisan Collection, an “edible chocolate gallery” of limited edition chocolates. The artist creates four representative images, and both the chocolatier and his customers have a new way to support the arts! A new collection has just debuted, featuring the work of Michele Carlson, an Oakland-based artist whose ink drawings and collages investigate the intersections of history, memory and popular culture. They’ve been screened onto the surface of Recchiuti’s most popular chocolate, Burnt Caramel. Send some to your favorite art and chocolate connoisseurs. Candied Orange Peel, hand cut and enrobed in dark chocolate, is also available, through the end of the month.||

|Eight pieces, 3.5 ounces, are $18.00 at Recchiuti.com. Previous artists in the Collection include Brian Barneclo, Sherry Olsen, Paul Madonna, Rex Ray, Kelly Tunstall and Beth Weintraub. Pieces from the most recent collection, Liz Saintsing, whose work features eccentric images of birds, insects and other creatures, are still available. Read our full review of Recchuiti Confections.|
