New Orleans Chocolate

Updated on March 16, 2010

New Orleans Chocolate Shops


Nothing says "indulge" quite like chocolate.  Chocolate can be your best friend when you're having a bad day or when you are celebrating your best day.  Dark chocolate, white chocolate, milk chocolate - everyone has a preference and finding a chocolate shop that makes it just the way you like it can be one of life's finest luxuries.  Whether you live in New Orleans, or are just passing through, if you are a chocolate lover (and who isn't?) then you absolutely must make a point of looking up the amazing chocolate shops that are hidden among the other famous sights and sounds of the city. 

1.  Sucre:  Located in the Garden District, Sucre (French for sugared) is open from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. on weekdays and midnight on Friday and Saturday nights for those late night sweet attacks.  Sucre is not your everyday bakery as is made obvious from the elegant exterior.  Plated desserts of the finest chocolate are served in an upper-scale atmosphere where it feels only natural to indulge in one of life's finest pleasures.  With an extensive online catalog, you can even have a box of New Orleans chocolate delivered right to your doorstep. Looking for a sumptuous wedding or specialty chocolate cake?  You're in luck because Sucre also makes custom order cakes.

2.  Blue Frog Chocolates:  Named after the Aztec God of delight - Xocolati - that legend says led the humans to open the first cocoa pods, Blue Frog Chocolates is located in Uptown New Orleans along historic Magazine Street.  Nestled in a 100 year old cottage that epitomizes the charm and character of New Orleans, Blue Frog Chocolates has an incredible array of custom order chocolates to choose from.  For something unique to take home, try ordering chocolate doubloon coins with your own custom wording and logo or a custom made milk chocolate photo bar that comes wrapped your own photo paper.  Looking for something you'll only find in New Orleans?  Try some Cajun Chocolate Bites with Cayenne - chocolate with a kick!

3.  Evans Creole Candy Factory:  Located in the heart of the French Quarter, this 100 year old candy factory was purchased back in 1968 by Jay Cuccia, maker of some of the world's best hand made, hand dipped chocolates.  Part of New Orleans history, it is worth a stop by the store to sample the creole hash - a chocoholics dream of marshmallows dipped in pecans and chocolate.  If ordering online, you can't go wrong with an assortment of the hand dipped Cuccia chocolates - luxury in a box.
