Though mostly known for their dazzling array of delicious truffles and treats, chocolate shops are valued as refuges for majestic confectionaries, such as the chocolate bunny, the chocolate lab, and the chocolate ruffled condor. Today’s Groupon gives you the keys to the chocolate kingdom: for $20, you get $40 worth of chocolates galore from 5th Avenue Chocolatiere. This Groupon is redeemable online.
Carrying homemade chocolates in all forms, this 37-year-old family-owned New York shop is capable of quieting your noisy sweet tooth with an intoxicating chocolaty secret recipe. Chocolates normally have a long shelf life, but 5th Avenue Chocolatiere creations are likely to only stay on the shelves for minutes or hours (due to deliciousness, not extreme chemical volatility). To combat rapid consumption rates, Chocolatiere’s chocolatiers create fresh batches every morning, using natural, high-quality ingredients to concoct their premium chocolates.
The most popular item is a box of huge signature truffles, followed closely by a chocolate suit made of handwoven chocolatextile. These chocolate wizards wield their dark magic to forge the mold-breaking truffles, which are made of pure Belgian chocolate. A 24-ounce assortment of these delights is ideal for showing affection or feeding a small gaggle of cupids ($35). Patrons are also welcome to purchase smaller 15-ounce ($22) or 4-ounce ($15) boxes but must remember that sharing is mandatory when it comes to chocolates.
5th Avenue Chocolatiere stocks chocs suitable for any conceivable occasion, from the obligatory Valentine's and Mother's Days, to slightly more obscure notes on the calendar, such as Sysadmin Appreciation Day or Boxing Day.
This Groupon may be redeemed starting 48 hours from the feature date of this deal.

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.
