If you’re planning on hosting a Halloween party this year, why not impress your guests and expand your snack selection from the usual candy combinations? Skip over the bulk bags of traditional treats and stop in at one of these local chocolatiers and pick up some gourmet goodies.
This old-fashioned confectionary specializes in handmade chocolates, fudge, and sweets throughout the year, but nothing says fall quite like their caramel apples, and these specially-decorated ones are sure to be a hit. Add to your display with some decorated Oreos ($8.95) and Halloween-themed ice-cream pops (who says this holiday can’t be celebrated with ice cream as well?). Need a break from all the chocolate? Pick up a couple of their pumpkin lollipops ($2.99) for a longer-lasting treat.
Known for its signature chocolate seashells and custom wedding favors, this shop is also offering some adorable Halloween treats this fall, complete with black and orange sprinkles, pumpkin decorations, and candy-corn faces. These decorated Oreos ($3-12), frosted ghost and mummy Nutter Butter cookies ($8), and cute Rice Krispy pumpkin treats ($4.75) will make the perfect favors at your next party.
Local resident Norman Love’s desserts have always looked like art, and these gorgeous decorated shortbread cookies ($4 each) are no exception. Perfect for creating a unique platter, these cookies come in classic Halloween shapes like orange pumpkins and white ghosts, as well as special ones printed with spooky slogans.
And if you’re looking to add a little something to your Thanksgiving table next month as well, these cookies also come in glittery maple leaf shapes and scrumptious pumpkin pie shapes.
