Whisk your sweet tooth to any of Oh! Chocolate’s three quaint chocolate shops where he'll be met with gleaming display cases lined with everything from hand-dipped truffles and nutty chews to fully stocked gift boxes and whimsical treats. Sixteen fleur de sel chocolates conceal buttery caramel hearts that are hinted with honey, blanketed in dark chocolate, and sprinkled with sea-salt-flooding taste sensors with the memory of Mr. Goodbar's tearful goodbye kiss. Those who opt for the wine-and-chocolate pairing at the Madison Park shop can slip into an exotic Xanadu truffle dotted with habanero mango, or stick to familiar shores with the chocolate-chocolate truffle, both of which are made by hand in small batches and expertly matched with a selection of seasonal red wines.
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.
