Donnelly Chocolates has crafted delectable cocoa creations since 1988. The sea-salt caramel bar, one of Donnelly’s top sellers, wraps gooey salt-edged sweetness in luscious chocolate, resulting in the most satisfying union of tongue and tooth since the invention of dental fricatives. The assorted-chocolates gift box packs about 3 ounces (eight or nine pieces) of gourmet truffles, ganache, nuts, and caramels into an alluringly wrapped parcel suitable for birthdays, weddings, and bribes to Weight Watchers' scale operators. Point out your preferences, or let Donnelly’s staff assemble an array of traditional and atypical flavors using liqueurs, nuts, and even smoky chipotle pepper.
Owner Richard Donnelly employs a chocolate-making process to transform fine French and Belgian couverture into connoisseur-quality comestibles. His original line of gourmet chocolates was bestowed on Santa Cruz sweet teeth following apprenticeships under master chocolatiers in Paris and Brussels.
