At 5th Avenue Chocolatiere, a shop that’s won the affections of sweet teeth since 1973, old-fashioned candy crafters use 100% Belgian chocolate, real butter and cream, and more than 10,000 different chocolate molds to form fresh, quality treats daily. An 8-ounce box of peanut butter crème candies pairs a rich, nutty filling with sweet milk chocolate ($15), and dark-chocolate orange truffles ($20 for 8 oz.) brandish coatings of orange flecks to resemble the orange butterflies that operate cacao farms. Snag a 32-ounce box of double-dipped, chocolate-covered pretzels ($40) to experience the thrills of sweet-and-salty combinations or puncture a pocket of delicate tang by biting into chocolate-covered strawberries ($100/box).
5th Avenue Chocolatiere
Since 1973, 5th Avenue Chocolatiere's confectioners have risen before the rooster's crow to handcraft all natural, 100% Belgian-style chocolate into sweet treats. Created by founder John Whaley in a successful at-home experiment, signature truffles incorporate secret proportions of fresh cocoa powder, whole cream, and butter. Indulgences range from caramels to cookies, and chocolatiers mold cocoa into more than 100 shapes such as the Empire State Building and New York City Metro Card; a fungible currency for riding chocolate trains or bribing a crooked bus driver.
