What You'll Get
With spring on the horizon, children will soon be hunting down and rounding up the townspeople's chocolate for trials that mock the very notion of justice. Stock and secure your private chocolate cellar with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of handmade European-style chocolates at Schakolad Chocolate Factory in Birmingham. At Schakolad, a parade of artistic confections derives from rich deposits of truffles and ganache, to the great satisfaction of sweet-toothed chocologists.
Schakolad Chocolate Factory, pronounced just like the chocolate factory it's named after, exemplifies chocolate craft by freshly preparing all of its decadent morsels on site and out of the highest-quality ingredients. The Schakolad world is one in which strawberries enjoy a casual bath in chocolate streams and one-bite truffles dress themselves in polite paper ruffles under the meticulous eye of trained chocolate artists. A boutique experience greets all customers, with seasonal chocolate snowmen ($60), santas, and Christmas trees ($45), in addition to dreidels ($10) and more.
While today's deal is good toward any of Schakolad's truffles, pretzels, bark, fruits, and novelty creations, $20 fully covers a variety of shareable edibles. Chocolate business-card boxes leave an impression on the hungry corporate elite (starting at $20), and truffle assortments pack variety for candy-grubbing coworkers and pecan-loving socialites (starting at $10). Sugar- and dairy-free options are also available, and chocolate creations may be ordered kosher.
- They serve the thick, velvety European-style drinking chocolate, in regular and often a specialty flavor such as Mayan (spicy). It's real hot chocolate, not merely hot cocoa, and made with cream. Thick, melty heaven in a cup - similar to that served at NYC's famous City Bakery. –asheblogs, Urbanspoon
- If you have an extreme sweet tooth, and love chocolate, I definitely suggest coming by here after dinner time. – Cherice J., Yelp

About Schakolad Birmingham Chocolate
As with a fine bonbon, finding out what's inside of Schakolad Birmingham Chocolate is the most exciting part. Inside the sunny storefront, glass shelves and counters ramble past a seating area, brimming with chocolates, cookies, and other confections. The swirls of frosting and twists of tissue paper attest to the knowledge of the staff, who have appeared on Fox 2 Detroit to talk about holiday chocolates.
Their own supply of confections includes signature chocolate ganache truffles infused with raspberries, rum, amaretto, and other flavors. Those treats as well as vegan dark chocolates, cake pops, and Italian gelatos match the vibrant colors of the paintings arrayed on the walls, adding to the feeling that everyone should be racing through the shop like an excited kid.
