Artisan chocolates made in small batches using Belgian chocolate, the finest, freshest ingredients, and no preservatives. We offer a wide array of truffles, sea salt caramels, butter crunches, (including our infamous Tamarack Sea Salt Butter Crunch), barks, s'mores, homemade marshmallows, bars and other delight specialty confections. And we offer the best hot chocolate in town made with real dark Belgian chocolate and our own homemade marshmallows.

Tiny shop with lotsa warmth and goodness! Warm welcome and nice conversation with owner Kate...and special goodness in the variety of unique chocolates tempting you from the packed display case and shelves. And on this visit there were samples to try! If you leave without buying at least a few you're not a chocolate lover!!

This is my 2nd review and I still LOVE the chocolate and the owner. We stop every time we are in the area. Chocolate is made there and is delicious and worth the price.

Our first day we arrived at Lake Placid and stopped here but the shop had already closed for the day. So glad we went back the next day. Owner Kate, was very friendly, offered us a free sample which of course got us hooked. Bought a few limenchello truffles, some chocolate bark and a couple chocolate covered Oreos. Everything was...

Kate, the owner, was extremely pleasant and personable. She runs the place herself, and makes everything in-house. Her variety is good, and her quality is peerless. I got a variety box, a few chocolate bars, and two bags of chocolate toffee, which is amazing. The store is made up of mostly dark chocolate, which is my preference. If you're looking... More

We hoped you enjoyed your chocolates, especially the chocolate buttercrunch (toffee), which we also love to eat (it is like potato chips--can't eat just one!). Thanks for the nice review, too. More

Wow the chocolate truffles are absolutely excellent. The chocolate used has no wax or paraffin the texture is a 10 out of 10 with that satiny smooth mouth feel. The flavored truffles are subtle they don't over whelm the chocolate another 10 out of 10. This is going to be a regular stop for us in the coming years.

If you love chocolate (like I do) you haven't tasted chocolate until you stop here. Don't leave without trying the Tamarack Sea Salt Butter Crunch...buy two bags - it really is addictive. The truffles are equally delicious...we will definitely be regulars! The owner (and chocolatier) is delightful...engaging and very talented. Don't miss this little slice of heaven.
