Enjoyed tasting the elixirs and ice cream. We all selected an ice cream as our treat and it truly was amazing. The staff is very friendly and the entire experience is worth a stop.

The truffles the caramels the sipping chocolate oh my! I don’t think you could make a bad choice here. The chili chocolate dipped caramels and piñon nut Carmel’s were buttery New Mexico delights!

How do you beat drinking chocolate elixir and homemade chocolate. I had the American which was delicious. The friendly staff lets you sample the elixirs to find your favorite. Near Canyon Road,so take a break from shopping and enjoy.
