The confectioners at Maroon Bells swirl together fruits, nuts, and caramel to form 40 ice-cream flavors and eight varieties of artisanal chocolates. Fresh cream, original recipes, and gourmand leprechauns conspire to create a rainbow of ice-cream flavors ($2.89 for one scoop), such as decadent red velvet, butter beer, and chocolate batter. Tongues can lap up specialty flavored coffee or hot cocoa ($1.45–$3.95) or relish the moist cake layer on festive ice-cream cakes ($24.95+). The shop’s recipes prescribe the use of high-quality cocoa and nuts in the creation of boxed chocolates ($12.45–$24.95 for 8 oz.), which marry milk and dark chocolate with cherry cordials, melty mint filling, and enough nuts to drive a squirrel cop to corruption.
