Restaurant Review: Cocoa Lounge 2013!

My favorite time of the year is here! That's right it's time for the return of the Cocoa Lounge at the Palm Terrace Restaurant located inside The Islands Hotel in Newport Beach! This year it is the fifth anniversary of the Cocoa Lounge and they decided it was time to change things up a bit. First, the price was dropped from $24 to $18. Second, they brightened the lounge area up. Third, they added more new chocolate concoctions than ever before!

So, I took ten of my closest chocolate loving friends and went to the Cocoa Lounge!
 My friend Sophia and I decided to try to eat the sign but that didn't work out.
Chocolate caramel lollipops!
These peanut butter chocolate bars tasted better than any Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!
I don't want to tell you how many of these Cookies and Cream Pots de Creme we ate!
You could taste the honey in each bite!
 These were so sweet with a bit of sourness to them!
I loved these delicious bites of German chocolate cake!
I actually think I didn't get around to trying this one =(
The almond cake was nice and light! The dark chocolate made it just perfect!
These had way too much banana in them! LOL!
Multiple layers of chocolate made this a winner!
These blew me away! They tasted like the strawberry shortcake popsicles!
I was too full to try one of these but maybe I will have to go back again soon!
One of the best puddings I have ever eaten!
Can I take some home? These were so good!
White chocolate margarita mousse? So amazingly perfect! My absolute favorite of the night!
My first of many plates for the night!

If you love chocolate you owe it to yourself to come out to the Cocoa Lounge. The Cocoa Lounge is available until February 17th.
