You’ll find plenty of options to satisfy your sweet tooth around Anaheim, starting with the Cocoa Parlor in Laguna Niguel. Here, only organic ingredients are used and the chocolate bars are life-changing. While you might spy their bars in shops around town, only the official brick and mortar offers bark, cookies, truffles and gluten-free options. Try the chocolate orange, black seed curry, caramel jungle and cinnamon latte. The almond bark has plenty of bite, and pairs wonderfully with hot chocolate or organic coffee served on site.
The Caramel Apple Shop in La Habra is one of a kind, known for constantly changing innovative flavor pairings. With a friendly and knowledgeable staff, it’s a true wonderland. Make your own marshmallow stick with sauces, candies and sprinkles. Get a demo on apple dipping and décor, watch rocky road fudge in the making and enjoy plenty of samples. The shop itself is tucked into a mall, but well worth the hunt. Don’t miss out on the chocolate-dipped honeycomb.
