We think you'll agree that chocolate is best in The Natural State.
Our creamy, dreamy tour of Arkansas chocolates and confections begins as you float down the Mississippi with a dark chocolate bark layered cocoa nib, walnut, marshmallow, flaky pie crust, and a pinch of sea salt--created by Arkansas's first certified chocolatier, Carmen Portillo, at Cocoa Belle Chocolates. Hailing from the northwest corner of the state, Markham & Fitz brings you origin-driven, handcrafted bean-to-bar chocolates, this one 60% Bolivia dark sprinkled with flakes of Maldon sea salt and filled with crunchy, toasted almonds. Pair that with a second artisan chocolate bar depending on season and availability, and there might be enough to share. Crunch on down to Heber Springs where you'll discover the best pecan toffee the South (heck, the whole country) has to offer from award-winning Lambrecht Gourmet, as plump roasted pecan halves are covered in rich butter toffee and drenched in creamy Belgian milk chocolate. No collection of rich, gourmet chocolate treats would be complete without chocolate chip cookies; J&M's variation of this classic favorite is sure to have the nod of approval statewide and beyond.
All the best chocolaty goodness Arkansas has to offer, nestled in our natural jute tote and tied up with a bow for a most naturally enjoyable chocolate experience.
