Like every great story – ours is a love story…for the love of CHOCOLATE! In 2004, a small team of retired master candy makers came together with one mission – recreate some of their world-renowned creations after traveling around the world and studying new techniques in the art of candy making.
In ten short years – Lake Forest has become quite recognized for its chocolates – including being featured on The Today Show (twice), listed in 'The 50 Best Chocolatiers In America' and even created chocolates for some of the most well-known customers and celebrities around the world. Needless to say, we are proud to have built a cult-like following of connoisseurs.
We dare to be different, unique and somewhat 'twisted'. Each creation has been developed in our top secret test kitchen and only approved after several revisions, taste tests and tweaks. Our techniques may span back 100 years, but our flavors and ideas are new and exciting. All of our products are handmade in small batches and crafted with care. Several products we make are a one-time batch – taking 4 days to create – then again, it's for the love of chocolate!
