Whether you’re looking for something simple and sweet or decadent and rich, these local chocolatiers have the finest selections of bon-bons, truffles, and chocolates that you can find in Boston!
Former Uni Pastry Chef, Betty Petrova, is the mastermind behind this remote Boston chocolate shop! You’ll never get a dull bite from Petrova Chocolates. The award-winning chocolatier is a genius when it comes to flavor combinations.
Baklava, pistachio canoli, halvah, and almond shortbread are just some of the multi-textured tantalizing creations. You can find Petrova Chocolates online and a select pop-ups around the city!
French trained Chocolatier, Liron Gal created Choc Allure in Needham, Massachusetts in the middle of a pandemic and managed to erupt in business while the world was in lockdown. That should tell you just about how incredible these chocolates are. Flavors like crème brûlée and strawberry cheesecake are reimagined and wrapped in luxuriously silky Valrhona chocolate.
