More macarons for everyone, and Sprinkles, watch out. Another Boule may open in Beverly Hills.

‘As a result of the popular demand for products, Boule is opening up another location in Beverly Hills,’ confirms publicist Susan Hosmer of Bullfrog & Baum. The location hasn’t been disclosed, and they can’t yet estimate an opening date. But there’s bound to be all those yummy macarons, chiffon marshmallows, fleur de sel caramels and, of course, chocolates.

Meanwhile, the original La Cienega store is moving down the street and will open next month, with a production facility for viennoisserie, ice cream, chocolates and bread.

In other chocolate news, Valerie Confections -- which makes that amazing Valrhona-chocolate-covered (hand-dipped) toffee -- is expanding its line of confections to include truffles, tea cakes and petit fours and is adding a retail area to its kitchen.
