Chocolates in Denver? [Moved from Midwest Board]

cpingenot Sep 8, 2008 09:41 AM

I'm a Boston chowhound who would like to get a gift basket law of really good chocolates for my Denver dwelling sister-in law. She's more into high cacao bars than elaborate truffles, but I'm sure she wouldn't say no to anything high quality.
In a perfect world this place would deliver, or at the very least mail.

I was looking at Roberta's chocolates, but am holding out see if I can find something that can deliver (to a hospital).

Any suggestions from Denver chowhounds would be much appreciated!

    Enstrom's is a Colorado candy company. Their almond toffee is really good.

      Can't help you with Denver but if you want to drive to Boulder County, I would recommend Belvedere Chocolates on 15th St just off the Pearl Street Mall or Marcel's Chocolate Room in Louisville.

          The Belvedere Choc website says this is a "new location." I wonder whether this is the shop that used to be in Cherry Creek North, just down the street from the former Tattered Cover location.

          Also, on another thread, someone mentioned Wen Chocolates, which are totally wonderful too.

          there's also wen chocolates on Platte, downtown by REI - i've always been impressed... more on the truffle end of the spectrum, but some inventive flavors nonetheless...
