Best Chocolates In Detroit

Chocolate, invented by the Mayans as a hot beverage, has grown into a proverbial cult across the globe. And it makes a great hostess gift at any New Year's party. Here in Detroit there are a few great chocolatiers everyone should visit including Gayle's Chocolates, Chocolates by Renee, Juliet Chocolates, Morley Candy Makers and Sanders Candy Factory and Sydney Bogg's Sweet Essentials.
Gayle's Chocolates

Gayle's Chocolates

417 Washington Ave.
Royal Oak, MI 48067

Not only do Gayle's Chocolates taste GREAT, they look sensational too! (Where else can you buy full size, chocolate high heels?) Ooh-la-la.

Chocolates By Renee

Chocolates by Renee

118 East Main St.
Northville, MI 48167

Handmade, gourmet, chocolates to die for! Terrific truffles, incredible coconut clusters and if you're in the mood for something different, dive into the butter almond toffee. Yum.

Juliet Chocolates

Juliet Chocolates

66870 Van Dyke Rd
Romeo, MI 48095
(586) 752-4335

Juliet Chocolates (in Romeo, of course) is the ultimate in sweet, small town goodness.  The chocolate is made on site. The truffles and chocolate-covered caramels are sensational. The shop is quaint.  The service is fantastic.  Four stars!

Sanders Candy Factory

Morley Candy Makers and Sanders Candy Factory

23770 Hall Road (M-59)
Clinton Township, MI 48036
(800) 682-2760 Extension 2218

Smooth and creamy, sweet and sensational.  A hometown favorite.  (And a fun field trip for school kids!)  I think they make the world's best, foil-wrapped, Christmas and Easter chocolates.  Confection perfection.

Sydney Bogg's Sweet Essentials

Sydney Bogg's Sweet Essentials

233 12 Mile Rd
Berkley, MI  48072
(248) 398-7933

If you love "turtles" (pecan, caramel, and chocolate clusters) you'll love Sweet Essentials. Turtles are their specialty. Their best seller.  Nobody makes them like Sweet Essentials. (I feel a binge coming on!)
