Like crayons, chocolate comes in many varieties and tastes better when unwrapped before consumption. Scribble out cocoa cravings with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of handmade chocolates and confections at Sweet Chocolat in Roseville.
Sweet Chocolat's confectioners create chocolates from scratch in the factory just behind its retail store and pour cocoa into more than 6,000 different molds before arranging confections into a potpourri of assorted boxes and gift baskets. Handmade sea-salt caramels constitute one of the Sweet Chocolat's most popular sweets ($2.25 for two; $9.99 for eight), and custom-dipped oreos ($0.99 each) adorn themselves in cloaks of milk, dark, white, or mint chocolate. The chocolatiers also package boxes of assorted truffles ($8.99/quarter-pound; $15.99/half-pound) as diverse as the contents of the United Nations' vending machines. Sweet Chocolat contributes to the community by holding special events and open houses at its store and factory.
