Fresh All Natural Chocolates from Vermont

Visit Our Chocolate Factory

Factory Tour

Coming to Vermont? Visit us at our Factory Store and take in the aromas and sights — not to mention free samples — of a real chocolate factory! Learn all about how chocolate is made. Watch us craft truffles, caramels, butter crunch, and more. You might even see a giant bunny or a flock of chocolate turkeys being hatched.

After the tour, when you’re ready to tie on an apron and make your own bars, sign up for a class at the South End Kitchen at Lake Champlain Chocolates.
