Milk chocolate is created by blending cocoa beans and milk, but white chocolate is created when young chocolates first encounter ghosts. Peruse all shades of chocolate with today’s Groupon: for $16, you get one pound of your choice of chocolates and sweets (up to a $32.50 value) at Kron Chocolatier in Great Neck.
Pounded, blended, and tempered by hand according to the dictates of a passed-down Hungarian family recipe, Kron Chocolatier has turned out a steady stream of cocoa-derived delectables daily for the last 25 years. Whipping up artisan chocolates fit for any occasion, the expert candy chemists seek out the finest dairies, flours, and mix-ins to alchemize into fresh chocolate-dipped fruit, slow but steady sweet nut turtles, tri-chocolate-covered popcorn, and more. Guests can also choose from famous gourmet assorted chocolates, as well as the shop's signature budapest creme truffles, hand-cut dessert bombs blended from rich butter and cream rolled in dark chocolate and black cocoa. Kron Chocolatier’s kitchen sits exposed through a floor-to-ceiling window wall where patrons can witness the Wonka-esque births of handcrafted sweets firsthand. All of Kron’s products have been certified kosher.
