Featured on the Today show and Extra!, Christopher Michael Chocolates enamors chocolate connoisseurs and everyday milk-chocolate-mustache wearers alike with specialty hand-painted chocolates.

Obtain the secrets of crafting creative chocolates by enrolling in the chocolate-making class. During the class, cocoa disciples learn to temper chocolate and make their own truffles and caramels under the guidance of an award-winning chocolatier, who may or may not be filled with nougat. In addition to taking home a handful of confections, students will also enjoy copies of the recipes to further entertain loved ones with public displays of chocolate affection.

Whether hearts beat for truffles (gift boxes $10+), bars ($6+), or candy confections ($5+), watering mouths will find a soul mate with a number of chocolate flavors, such as Hawaiian ginger, lemongrass, and rosemary caramel. Treat tongues to tantalizing flavor combinations, such as milk-chocolate-covered marshmallows ($5) or the famed sizzling bacon bar made from 41% Venezuelan milk chocolate, smoked bacon, sea salt, and popping candy ($6+).

The official chocolatier to the Grammy Awards and the Academy Awards, Christopher Michael Chocolates uses mostly single-origin, fair-trade Venezuelan chocolate, locally sourced fresh cream and butter, and homegrown mint, rosemary, and oranges from the family orchard. No preservatives and artificial favors are used in the process, ensuring that eaters get an unadulterated chocolate experience usually reserved for esteemed oompa-loompas.

Christopher Michael Chocolates

The confectioners at Christopher Michael Chocolates challenge the palate's expectations with inventive flavor combinations, often balancing a sweet base with savory accents. The complex treats begin their lives as simple, preservative-free ingredients, including fair-trade Venezuelan cacao beans, organic dairy from local farms, and homegrown herbs and citrus fruits.

Christopher Michael's renowned creations, which stole hearts from their position in the 51st Grammy Awards's gift baskets in 2009, include the Sizzling Bacon bar, which marries smoky bacon with sweet milk chocolate, and the Aztec Spiced bar, sizzling with chilies and cinnamon. Handcrafted and painted truffles burst on tongues with traditional and nontraditional flavor infusions, including chipotle and honey, rosemary and grapefruit, and caramelized banana.

In addition to slinging premade candies, the team shares its expertise by hosting regular classes, including truffle-making sessions, where students learn to temper chocolate and lick ganache out of the bowl while the instructor isn't looking, as well as courses in caramel and ice-cream creation.
