Bringing the beauty and history of the Animas River and San Juan Mountains into simple, yet elegant chocolate. Handmade truffles, bars, and a variety of chocolate confections, are made using the highest quality chocolate. We strive to use only simple ingredients and no added preservatives, to create fresh and unique flavors in each piece. Animas Chocolate Company was inspired by the beauty and nature of the Animas River, and all of the majesty that surrounds it. We take our slogan from the river's historical name, Rio de las Animas Perdidas, meaning The River of Lost Souls. When applied to Animas Chocolate Company, we invite you to - Lose your Soul to Chocolate.

What a darling shoppe. Like going back in town, you can cozy up to the bar and get your favorite cup of Hot Chocolate! There are various chocolates available as well. Perfect for a cold day!
