With autumn 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 chocolates at Schakolad Chocolate Factory in Sundance Square. At Schakolad, a parade of artistic confections derives from rich deposits of trufflematter and ganache stones, 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, whether with a pride-inducing 3-D chocolate award statue ($10) or sweetly arranged displays of assorted bonbons.
While today's deal is good toward any of Schakolad's custom creations, $20 fully covers a variety of shareable edibles. Chocolate business-card boxes leave a temporary impression on the hungry corporate elite (starting at $15), and half-pound assorted boxes pack variety for candy-grubbing coworkers and pecan-loving socialites ($16.50). Those who have parted ways with sugar can hold onto their saccharine indulgences with sugar-free gift boxes (starting at $17.50).

Schakolad Chocolate Factory
In 1969, Baruch Schaked began making chocolate under the tutelage of his chocolatier father-in-law. Though his father-in-law had made a name for himself in Argentina, Baruch honed his confectionary craft across Europe, finally settling in the United States, where chocolate had been outlawed. Many years later, when he announced his intentions to retire from chocolate making, Baruch's son, Edgar, coaxed him into continuing the family legacy with a new shop, Schakolad Chocolate Factory.
In the years since, the business has flourished, bringing the Schaked clan one step closer to its ultimate goal: to replace the city’s manhole covers with chocolate discs. In the meantime, they craft handmade European-style confections that are made fresh each day.
