Nothing says Valentine’s Day quite like chocolate. Sweet on Chocolate has been bringing the sweet treat to Armory Square since 1993.
Today, the shop offers a variety of handmade products: turtles, clusters, barks, creams, chocolate bars and hot chocolate. But owner Adam Mazzoni, who bought the business in 2018, says truffles are most popular –For Valentine’s Day, customers can choose from strawberry prosecco, raspberry rose and hot and bothered (or try all three). Chocolate covered strawberries will also be available.
“I’ve always had a passion for cooking and food,” Mazzoni said. “My creativity is expressed through flavor, and I think that’s just how I view things; would that taste good, with chocolate or with something else…I took this foundation [the previous owner] built and I wanted to put my own touch on it, so I wanted to make some seasonal flavors and things that rotated and kept things interesting.”
