Portland chocolate maestro may have world's best job

PORTLAND, Ore. - Master Chocolatier Julien Rose makes Willy Wonka look like a muddling amateur.

Rose's confections look like miniature works of art. Or jewelry. Or both. And, of course, they taste as good as the look.

Rose is the man behind many of the amazing treats at Moonstruck Chocolate, where he said he is head of "research and development."

But most people would admit he probably has the best job in the world - and he clearly loves his work.

KATU photographer Monty Orrick captured the master at work.
