The European-trained confections crafter behind The Velvet Chocolatier designs and hand-makes each chocolate confection from pure ingredients undiluted by liquors or preservatives. The Velvet Chocolatier places focus on the texture and intensity of treats, rather than on sweetness, coating tongues with tempered chocolate bark speckled with nuts, dried fruit, and memories of the nougat-filled trees it came from. The milk-chocolate bark, emblazoned with tart cranberries and crispy pepitas, snaps apart in satisfying bites, and toffee bark brandishes toffee bits in a luxurious dark chocolate. A single-serving, 2-ounce nut cluster comes in the form of an edible frisbee of dark chocolate bursting with toasted almonds or a colorful disk of blueberries and green pistachios set against a white-chocolate canvas.
Or opt to sample from the sweet spectrum of chocolate-themed comestibles. The thin, chocolate-drizzled layer of the artisan truffles adorns a hand-rolled ganache brimming with a rich cacao-and-cream mixture infused with coffee, vanilla, or cinnamon ($18 for a single box). The Velvet Chocolatier also whips up enrobed chocolates, each topped with an artistic flourish that, like the cliff notes to a Captain Crunch cereal box, denotes the flavors hidden within ($24 for a double box).
