• For $4, you get $8 worth of ice cream.

At Schakolad Chocolate Factory, a parade of artistic confections is prepared on site by the hands of skilled artisans from a wellspring of refined, high-quality ingredients, and presented in an eye-pleasing boutique fashion. Cool down cravings with one of nine ice-cream varieties made fresh in the store by Schakolad's flavormakers, whose methods include strewing mint ice cream with chocolate chips, paving a marshmallowy way with rocky road, and failing to bake CakeOlicious cake batter ($4/small, $5/medium, $6/large; cups or waffle cones).
For those who prefer their treats at room temperature, $22 fully covers a variety of shareable edibles. 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. Chocolate business-card boxes leave a deliciously lasting impression on the hungry corporate elite ($15+), and regular, large, or ultimate assorted normal or sugar-free boxes pack a variety show of flavor ($15+). Usually available year-round, the popular fresh, large, and long-stem strawberries can be dipped in milk, dark, or white chocolate ($3.50 each).
Schakolad Chocolate Factory
Baruch Schaked, cofounder of Schakolad Chocolate Factory, has melted, molded, and handcrafted chocolates across the globe since 1969. First working under his chocolatier father-in-law in Argentina, Schaked eventually traveled across Europe, participating in courses, attending seminars, and occasionally taking a dip in a chocolate fountain. Years later, after running a confectionary in southern Florida, Baruch was planning to sell the shop in favor of retirement. His son Edgar lovingly interceded in his determination to keep the three-generation family passion alive. Together, the two opened the first Schakolad Chocolate Factory in 1995, focusing on crafting fresh, hand-dipped chocolates.
