Made from real, traceable ingredients, each hand-made gem at this Leslieville shop just hits different. Sure, every bar, truffle and hot chocolate mix is flavourful and complex. Beyond that, though, the team's commitment to sourcing ingredients in a transparent and meaningful way gives substance to each and every morsel.

The seasonal sweets and everyday essentials at this Annex shop never disappoint. A sixth-generation konditor, or confectioner, German-born owner Daniel Stubbe coaxes cacao, cream, and add-ins, ranging from Gewurztraminer to reshampatti chilis, into habit-forming indulgences.

If it's eye-popping chocolates imbued with flavours that warrant a Willy Wonka stamp of approval that you seek, this East Chinatown spot will have your heart. Order espresso and Marc de Champagne for the more timid sweet teeth, durian and pei pa koa for the adventurous, and everyone will be exceptionally well taken care of.

Dark chocolate fiends descend on this shop in Corso Italia to get their bean-to-bar fix. Roasted, winnowed and ground with volcanic stone, cacao takes on unparalleled richness and flavour in the team's hands. Opt for Darkness — a three-ingredient, 75% bar — if you categorize milk chocolate as baby food.

Chocolate enriched with condensed milk and myriad flavourings sates sweet cravings at this cute spot in the Upper Beaches and Financial District. New to Brazilian brigadeiros? Pop in and let the team walk you through a selection that includes white coconut, crème brûlée, Baileys and dozens of other flavours.

Bars are flavoured simply — with peppermint, cardamom coffee, even fig and sea salt — at this Upper Beaches shop. Made from minimal ingredients, with a focus on clean flavours and ethical sourcing, chocolates here are as pure an expression of regional cacao as you're likely to find.


Nadege Patisserie

Nadege Patisserie

Known for its macarons and meticulous desserts, this multi-location patisserie also peddles sophisticated chocolates made from quality ingredients. A lineup of signature bonbons and bars includes treasures like the 68% Harvest, with crunchy corn and almonds, and the 70% grand cru dark with Parmesan.

Mary's Brigadeiro

Mary's Brigadeiro

As you might guess, the signature item at this shop (on Danforth East and in the Financial District) is melt-in-your-mouth brigadeiro. Dig a little deeper, and find cookies, chocolate spreads, drinking chocolate, and more crafted with the same velvety, fudgy, hand-crafted manna at their core.
