A delicately prepared chocolate can make a woman's heart sing, a child's mouth smile, and a crossing guard's whistle taste even more like justice. Stock up on tasty times with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of candy and other treats at Richardson's Candy Kitchen in Deerfield.
Sweet teeth wave the sugary white flag of defeat at Richardson's Candy Kitchen, voted the Best Sweet Shop/Confectioner by the Valley Advocate in 2010. Like the tortoise, the dixie ($27.99/15 pieces) is inspired by the classic chocolate turtle, and its clandestine chocolate, nut, and caramel formula was recently lauded on Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate. Fudge-friendly boxes can be customized with three choices from ten types of dixie, such as the dark-almond, milk-pecan, and milk-rice-crispy varieties. The sugar-free sampler ($20.99/24 pieces) offers tongues a guiltless way to enjoy chocolaty sensations, sweetened with maltitol and the powdered dreams of care bears. Any quantity of candies can be purchased within Richardson's Candy Kitchen's inviting store.
Seven Yelpers give Richardson's Candy Kitchen an average of four stars:
- The chocolate tasted fresh, homemade and not sickeningly sweet. I ordered a lot of the Dixies and mailed them to family around the US. The Dixies were divine and I intend to get more if I am ever in the area. – Jane E., Yelp, 10/30/10
- Great for gifts! If I'm in a bind for a present, this is a go-to place. – Clif P., Yelp, 12/7/10
