Chocolate Corner's friendly staff calls on family recipes and fresh butter and cream to concoct tasty confections in a mélange of styles. White-chocolate almond bark ($16/lb.) traps cranberries in a wave of creamy sweetness, and caramel-pecan paws ($19.95/lb.) douse nuts in gooey caramel before the mixture bathes in dark or milk chocolate. Fudge ($12/lb.) comes in numerous flavors— such as cookies ‘n’ cream and chocolate pecan with Alabama pecans—all of which melt in mouths the same way the armor of a knight melts in the belly of a dragon.
