HIDDEN chocolate companies that are a true TREAT

In my travels I always keep my eyes open for new family chocolate shoppes and chocolate manufacturers. A recent find was Chocoholics Divine Desserts in the tiny N. California town of Clements. Clements is best known for its annual rodeo, the Clements Stampede, but after sampling the Chocoholics products, I think the rodeo may have a “run for its money” for the first place notoriety in Clements. Chocoholics Divine Desserts offer some exquisitely luscious treats.

Another recent discovery is Woodhouse chocolates in the famous Napa Valley wine town of Saint Helena, Ca. Located conveniently on Main street, they have some truly luxurious offerings. Woodhouse features handmade chocolate confections of unique design made with fresh nuts and spices. An amazing treat for the really well-heeled tourists.

Carmel, Ca is a great place to spend a weekend. Several luscious chocolate stops produce even sweeter memories. Cottage of Sweets offers specialty licorice in addition to chocolate. Pieces of Heaven Fine Chocolates is located in the Barnyard Center. It offers delightful treats in the midst of a popular shopping venue. And you must absolutely try the cherry cordials from Lula’s chocolates, at the Cornucopia Community Market – wow!
