We stopped here and got great hand crafter local chocolate for gifts to take home. Lots of choices of bars and truffles. Best were fudge circle treats we ate on the spot. Samples too! May seem pricey to some but you are paying for quality....More

Fudgecicle on the porch. Delicious!! Worth the drive for one of those!! But why stop there? True artisan chocolates in flavors you might not expect like dark chocolate with basil. Yum.

New building in town. Very nicely done. More spacious and comfortable. Stop by for a coffee and chocolate. Specialty artisan chocolates. Also makes the perfect gift. Every piece is carefully crafted.

This is a must when ever in the area. Their artisan chocolates are gorgeous, with the sea salt dark being our favorite. They just moved to a new location and is a wonderful place to sit down and sample. Do not miss it!

Description
We are a small family-owned chocolate business that focuses on sourcing as many natural, local ingredients as possible. Our chocolate is ethically traded from Ecuador and of the highest quality. We LOVE great chocolate and we look forward to sharing it with you. Because we are committed to sourcing the best ingredient - local dairy, honey, fruits, spirits, etc - and chocolate, our prices are higher than what you'll find at a typical Northern Michigan chocolate shop.
