Third Avenue Chocolate Shoppe
In the kitchen at Third Avenue Chocolate Shoppe, artisan chocolatier Matt Magyar is hard at work sprinkling real sea salt over his handmade dark-chocolate caramels. As he describes to the Manasquan-Belmar Patch, “I had on-the-job training when I started making chocolate on the boardwalk in Seaside when I was 14.” Decades later, his training is evident in the vast array of tasty treats he crafts each day. Trays proudly showcase homemade treats such as chocolate nut clusters, caramel cranberry sea turtles, and rooster leggs.
