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 $16, you get a one-pound box of assorted chocolates at Schakolad Chocolate Factory (up to a $33 value).
Schakolad Chocolate Factory's confectionery craftspeople hand dip more than 70 varieties of European-style chocolates and truffles constructed in custom molds. The boutique greets customers with themed displays hosting cacao comestibles such as milk-chocolate cars, chocobunnies snuggled into cellophane nests, or a series of chocolate busts depicting Potter County school superintendents. A one-pound assorted box abounds with 35 creamy squares of white, dark, and milk chocolate. Before parceling them out, well-fed artists crown each milky morsel with a festive motif including stars, hearts, and Buicks.
Though Schakolad Chocolate Factory sometimes offers discounted prices online, this Groupon still presents the best deal available.
Schakolad Chocolate Factory
Though cloaked in a velvety chocolate shell, the shape is unmistakable—a tail curved into a half-moon, claws frozen mid-snap. It’s definitely a scorpion. And, if the opinions of the chocolate summer camp’s 8-year-old gourmands can be trusted, it’s also delicious.
Though Schakolad Chocolate Factory owners DeRima and Gary Johnson have been trained in meticulous European chocolate-making techniques that date back three generations, they encourage playfulness and experimentation at their shop. For example, chocolate-making events empower chocolate aficionados to experiment with flavor combinations, and Ms. Johnson recently unveiled chocolate quesadillas for a Cinco de Mayo celebration. The chocolatiers are also happy to customize orders, from scribing messages atop glossy chocolate bars to creating chocolate molds that match the circumferences of customers’ mouths.
