Here are a handful of our favorite Chocolatiers from RVA just in case you need a quick fix.
Cathy Churcher ; Chocolate Cravings : Super yummy chocolate bars, Guinness brownies and seasonal specialties like peanut butter filled eggs sold through farmer's markets, the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden gift shop, and by special order from her shop on lakeside avenue.
Kelly Walker ; Chocolates By Kelly : Out'a sight salted caramels, liquor filled cordials and more. She even has a Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar with menu suggestions. Made in her shop on Forest Hill Avenue, you can find them at Once Upon A Vine South, Elwood Thompsons, Quirk Gallery and other area shops.
Tim Gearhart ; Gearhart's Chocolates: The original Store on Main st. in Charlottesville is where all the chocolates are made daily. The perhaps three year old store just off of Grove Ave. allows us to enjoy their chocolate truffles and chocolate covered orange peels a bit more regularly.
