5 MUST-VISIT LOCAL CANDY SHOPS

|

If you have a sweet tooth, you’re in luck. The Dallas-Fort Worth region is home to a variety of sweet shops from bulk candy stores to high-end chocolateries. Check out some of our favorites next time you get a craving for a treat.

Candy World

Just a few miles away in Garland, you’ll find this sweet shop that will remind you of a less perilous version of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Step inside and surround yourself with every treat you could imagine – Jelly Bellies, Ghirardelli, gummy candies, sour candies, Toblerone, and even sugar-free candies. And of course, you’ll find rich and indulgent chocolate boxes, too.

Sarah Sweets

This specialty chocolate shop creates beautiful treats and boxed gifts for special events and holidays. From chocolate bears stuffed with candies to Valentine’s Day truffles, you’ll find it all. Just remember that they primarily take custom orders, so be sure to call them or get a quote from their website.

Rocky Mountain Chocolate

A short drive away to Rockwall will bring you to this well-known chocolate shop. Rocky Mountain has every chocolate treat you can imagine: truffles, chocolate-covered pretzels, chocolate lollipops, chocolate candies, chocolate-covered cookies… Basically, it’s a chocoholic’s dream come true.

Isabelly’s Chocolates & Sweet Treats

Hop over to Richardson to visit this gourmet chocolaterie. Their truffles are works of art, decorated with piped chocolate, edible gold leaf, cookie crumbles, and more. From Dark Green Tea and Cayenne to Honey Whiskey and Lavender White Chocolate, you will find exactly what you’re craving. They also have unique and fun items on their menu like hot chocolate pops (which look like someone stuck a lollipop stick into a cup of hot chocolate and pulled all the contents out to lick instead of sip – yum!), toffee, peanut brittle, macarons, and the prettiest cake balls you have ever seen.

Smallcakes Cupcakery & Creamery

You can’t go wrong with a shop filled with cupcakes and ice cream, right? This darling eatery in Garland has some of the best cupcakes in the region: Maple Bacon, Tiramisu, and French Toast to name a few flavor options. And their ice cream flavors include Salted Caramel, Blue Munster Cookie, and Birthday Cake. In the mood for something nostalgic and different? Try their ice cream cookie sandwiches, a local favorite.

If all these treats have you inspired to try your hand at making your own, check out this fun and simple recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert from Taste of Home. As always, be sure to visit our blog for more fun topics and local tips!
