Artisan chocolates made in small batches using Belgian chocolate, the finest, freshest ingredients, and no preservatives. We offer a wide array of truffles, sea salt caramels, butter crunches, (including our infamous Tamarack Sea Salt Butter Crunch), barks, s'mores, homemade marshmallows, bars and other delight specialty confections. And we offer the best hot chocolate in town made with real dark Belgian chocolate and our own homemade marshmallows.

This is my 2nd review and I still LOVE the chocolate and the owner. We stop every time we are in the area. Chocolate is made there and is delicious and worth the price.

We hoped you enjoyed your chocolates, especially the chocolate buttercrunch (toffee), which we also love to eat (it is like potato chips--can't eat just one!). Thanks for the nice review, too.
