Oh! Chocolate’s gift boxes fulfill the mouth's sweetest desires with delicate, pre-selected arrangements of bite-size, handmade chocolates. Buttery caramels dunked in dark and milk chocolate headline the 19-ounce Bumbershoot Box that, like a cookbook folded into origami, impresses with its combination of craftsmanship and various tastes. Elsewhere in the cachet of treats, irish-cream-infused coffee truffles tickle taste sensors, whereas each crunch of the butter-almond toffee pieces adds rhythm to the melodious flavors.

Started by Hawaii transplants Gertie Han and Karl Krautheim more than 50 years ago, Oh! Chocolate is now run by the couple’s two daughters, who uphold Gertie and Karl’s reputation for quality as they handcraft French–style chocolate morsels. USA Today named the neighborhood establishment one of Seattle's foremost chocolatiers for its “old-fashioned… melt-in-your-mouth” creations, which include raspberry, cabernet, and mango-habanero truffles, as well as caramels with a sprinkle of sea salt harvested from one of the peninsula's naturally occurring saltshakers. Oh! Chocolate’s warm and inviting Madison Park location spreads cocoa-themed knowledge with a slate of classes in which small groups of students glean valuable information such as tempering methods and ideal placement atop a just-fluffed pillow.
