Hot chocolates is not only a winner in delivering some of Canada's best chocolates, fudges and ice creams but is also an artisan bakery with flare. Jordan, co-owner, and his team excelled with their triple 3-layer chocolate cake, ordered to perfection for my parents 44th Anniversary BBQ. The... read more

The best of baking - scones, bread and Belgian Chocolate cake available. One will make sell one's soul for a bite of the chocolate cake...................... Thanks for the testing samples of dipping oils and vinegars - so nice to try before one buys.

Hot chocolates do have THE best chocolates I have ever indulged in anywhere in the world. Lingering flavours and really good chocolate (I prefer dark). There breads and pastries are also delicious. Highly recommend their apple bread. Hint: if they are out of a bread you want ask if they have any of it frozen -- they frequently do. Also... More

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your selection! If you were looking for some heat, our chili ganache square would fit the bill. The Sinaloa Truffle (that we believe you are describing), is lightly infused, offering just a little tingle of chili on your palate and is not meant to create heat. We hope this helps... More

We send all of our B&B guests to Hot Chocolates, and everyone comes back smiling. Lots of choices, plus an artisan bakery. The truffles are awesome.

Delicious, pure ingredient treats here. A small box goes a long way as they are very rich. Well worth the price.
