Where else can you find stacks of chocolate inside of chocolate? The creamy richness waiting inside cannot be described by words.
Did I mention there's gelato? With fun flavors like Pistachio, Raspberry Truffle and Butter Crunch, this is the perfect stop in the summertime.
4. Thorncrest Farm & Milk House Chocolates (Goshen)
This picturesque barn is also home to a couple of cows and a ton of chocolate. I'd recommend walking the grounds a little bit before shopping away.
Small and farm-side, they know they have to impress you with a smaller selection than their competitors. Which means only the best for you!
Their claim to fame is having the best truffles you'll ever eat! From Dark Chocolate Crumb to Intense Dark Chocolate Orange, the flavor combinations are simply explosive. You'll have to try it for yourself!
5. Le Rouge-Handmade Chocolates by Aarti (Westport)
Named Best of the Gold Coast 2016, you definitely don't want to miss this one! They not only make spectacular chocolates, but cake as well!
Holy macaroons! Everything this shop does is bright and colorful. Their hip approach to presentation will definitely wow you, especially after you've tasted their confections.
I bet you're ready to dive into these chocolate delights already. Me too! With its rich flavors and inclusion of cakes, you'll definitely want to bring a friend or two to share with. At least for this stop.
6. Munson's Chocolates (Mystic)
The Mystic branch of this chocolate shop is just as impressive as the one in Bolton. And after that drive along the coast, this place is the perfect cherry on top of the trip.
Try not to be too tempted by the bags of chocolate. You can get a peek at some of the action behind the counter and try their famous fudge.
But you'll probably be looking for something nice and refreshing after the drive. So why not walk out with this ice cream sandwich, dipped in chocolate?
This chocolate trip would be great for a romantic weekend, or an outing with the girls. When you’re done stuffing your face, try these
