Treat yourself to something sweet at Araya Artisan Chocolate in Katy, with one of these four amazing menu items.

Artisan Chocolates

With over 30 different artisan chocolates to choose from, you’re bound to find a flavor or two that please the palate. Think outside of the box with flavors like strawberry balsamic, Earl Grey, chai spice, and mango habanero (yep, it’s a two layer chocolate with spicy dark chocolate ganache infused with habanero pepper). Or you may like a classic like the raspberry, hazelnut praline, peanut butter and berries, or the smooth 41% Venezuelan milk chocolate. Mix and match or take home a whole lot of the same of these insanely good chocolate bites.


The rich, melt-in-your mouth, chocolate-y goodness that are Araya’s truffles will leave you longing for more of that sweet ganache taste. Enjoy the amaretto, bourbon, coconut rum, Champagne rosé, café café, or hazelnut. We recommend the amaretto, filled with 58.5% Venezuelan chocolate ganache with Italian amaretto liqueur finished with chocolate curls. Yum.

French Macarons

Araya’s French macarons are the perfect compliment to your cup of tea or coffee. Flavors include lemon, raspberry, mocha, caramel, vanilla, pistachio, and dark chocolate. Looking for a gift or party favor? Take home little favor boxes with two macarons a piece. Your friends will surely love you.

Toasty Beverages

If you’re looking for a pick-me-up, look no further than Araya’s for fresh coffee, delicious hot chocolate, espresso drinks, and specialty tea. As one might expect coming from an artisan chocolate shop, the hot chocolate is a must try, no matter the weather outside. Add a few marshmallows and you’ll be one happy camper.
