Six small batch chocolate makers we love – that deliver!

If you asked us 15 years ago if we thought Ontario was a gourmet-chocolate destination, we’d probably laugh; but all across the province, master chocolatiers are opening up boutique shops with truffles, bars and confections that have always wanting more. These small-batch artisans are committed to quality and their craft and for the first time, most are making their products available online.

Here are six Ontario artisan chocolate makers we love – all only a click away!

Angela Roest — Award-Winning Chocolatier and owner of Centre & Main, loves marrying local flavours with the best ethically-sourced chocolate from across the world. Each bar is a thoughtfully designed work of art. We love the Strawberry Rhubarb Saffron Bar made with True Saffron (grown outside of Warkworth!); and the Blackcurrant bar made with Popham Lane Farm currants.

The team at SOMA have been making small batch, bean to bar chocolate in Toronto since 2003. What started as a small shop in the Distillery District has grown to three locations and plenty of chocolate offerings – including a Mexican Hot Chocolate drink that we literally can’t stop thinking about. For those looking to gift their sweet creations, we highly recommend the trying the Gianduja trio – their love story to nuts – and available until Valentines Day.
