We make everything by hand in our Lower East Side atelier, sourcing our ingredients with care, locally where possible. We are known for unique flavor combinations (bacon treats, beer-centric candies, cocktail infused chocolates, etc) as well as our own twist on classic confections.In addition to fresh chocolates, we make buttercrunch toffees, caramel popcorns, pretzel treats, and lollipops. Ethically sourced ingredients are very important to us and we work very hard to assure that we purchase local and organic wherever we can. Our chocolate is sourced from a bean-to-bar chocolate factory in Belize which employs local people there. Because of our focus on the origins and processes behind our ingredients, Roni-Sue’s Chocolates has become part of the Good Food Merchants Guild, which carefully vets all manufacturing practices and ingredients used by it’s vendors. In 2013, we opened a storefront cafe in the Lower East Side, which now offers hands-on, make and take classes to the public as well as private classes for corporate team building, bachelorette parties, etc. I enjoy sharing my love of chocolate and the opportunity to teach others about the importance of sustainable, direct-trade chocolate.
