Award-winning Ice Cream

Lake Champlain Chocolates is honored to win the Seven Daysies "Best Housemade Ice Cream" award five years in a row (2014-2018). Our award-winning ice cream is available year-round.  Enjoy classic flavors like Vanilla and Belgian Chocolate, or try something different like our Maple Butter Pecan and Salted Caramel. Our ice cream makers are always crafting new seasonal flavors for you to try, so be sure to visit us at our Church Street Marketplace and Pine Street locations in Burlington, or on Route 100 in Waterbury. Treat yourself, friends, and family to one of our legendary cones, over-the-top sundaes, or one of our amazing milkshakes. (We recommend the Go-Go Shake, which is made with coffee ice cream and two shots of espresso.)

High-Quality, Local Ingredients

Not only is our ice cream incredibly tasty, but it also supports Vermont agriculture. We use high-quality local ingredients, including fresh cream, maple syrup, and local fruit. Vermont is our home and at Lake Champlain Chocolates we take pride in our craftsman’s approach and using ingredients that support our local farmers.

Handcrafted Inclusions

To make the best ice cream, you have to add only the best ingredients. That’s why all of the confections included in our creations are handcrafted. Our housemade caramel, praline pecans, and chocolate chips are hand-whipped into the ice cream in small batches to ensure the ultimate quality and taste. We use rich, fair trade dark chocolate for our chocolate-based flavors, melting it, and making it into a ganache. 

Get Your Scoop On

Regardless of the time of year, it is always a good time to treat yourself to something tasty from one of our cafés and indulge in the best Vermont has to offer in homemade ice cream.
