Job Opportunities

A Vermont Family Company since 1983. Vermont is more than an address for Lake Champlain Chocolates. It's home — where we live, who we are, and how we do business. It's also where we make our chocolates — right here in Burlington by the shores of Lake Champlain. And from the first truffle in 1983 to present day, Vermont has inspired us to take a craftsman’s approach to chocolate: creativity, patience, and mastery.
