10 Of The Most Irresistible Chocolatiers In Western New York

Try not to drool over the ten sweetest and most satisfying chocolatiers in Western New York

There’s one thing you should know, though, when you’re shopping for candy this Easter season: use a shopping basket or a shopping bag to hold your candy while you shop. 

You should prepare to shop at a candy store as if it were a Wegmans or a Tops, instead of trying to carry a chocolate bunny here, and a sponge candy box there, because your natural body heat will cause the chocolates to change their mold and melt to the shape of…well, you. 

And while your friends and family may love you, they probably don’t want to see your handprint on the back end of your chocolate bunny. “No bunny” would want that.

Have a “Hoppy Easter!” and don’t forget the bag, otherwise you’ll be out of “clucks.”
