If not sated, a strong sweet tooth may grow a mind of its own, leading mouths to gnaw on newspaper ads for ice-cream parlors and vanilla-scented soap. Give teeth what they really crave with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet chocolates, fudge, and caramels at The Chocolate Haus. Customers may redeem this Groupon online or at the shop located in the Amana Colonies.
Wielding a wooden spoon, copper kettle, and century-old recipes, the confectioners at The Chocolate Haus hand-craft an array of tasty goodies from natural, preservative-free ingredients. Visitors gaze through a wide, glass partition as chocolatiers mix signature fudge in flavors such as old-fashioned chocolate, rocky road, or vanilla pecan from scratch. Patrons can blend these three together in a custom box ($23) or explore other realms of temptation with a half-pound of ganache-filled cappuccino truffles ($12) or chocolate-coated s’mores ($21). For dentists who practice what they preach, The Chocolate Haus also boasts a hefty collection of sugar-free treats ranging from almond butter crunch ($11) to milk-chocolate-, pecan-, and caramel-filled turtles ($11).
