Top Chocolate Shops in Des Moines

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we’ve got chocolate on the brain. Whether you’re craving truffles, fudge or chocolate-covered strawberries, here are the top Des Moines chocolateries to put those sweet-tooth pangs to rest.

Beaverdale Confections

Home of famously delicious marshmallows, Beaverdale Confections also offers a decadent collection of truffles, toffee, fudge and caramels. To sample the best the shop has to offer, pick up a Socially Distanced Snack Pack ($35) with chocolate-dipped pizzelles, BeaverCrunch (Iowa-grown popcorn coated in caramel and milk, dark and white chocolate) and more. All treats are made with love in house.

Chocolate Storybook

Turtles, toffees, truffles–oh my! Chocolate Storybook whips up a selection of chocolate to make you melt. For a unique treat, sample the chocolate-covered bacon or even gourmet pickle-flavored cotton candy. The shop’s chocolate-covered strawberries are a favorite come Valentine’s Day, so be sure to pre-order.

Chocolaterie Stam

The Stam family has been in the confectionery business for more than 200 years, offering the highest quality products–and even local delivery! The chocolaterie’s bonbons are particularly popular, and its 6-in.-tall solid hand-crafted chocolate letters, available in dark or milk, are too fun for a quirky but tasty present.
