No one knows chocolate like these incredible dessert and candy shops in the Boise area. Today is National Chocolate Day, and the timing for this holiday couldn't be any more perfect – right before Halloween and just in time for the holidays!

What better way to celebrate today than by highlighting the best, local places for chocolate throughout the Treasure Valley? Treat yourself to some chocolate, that’s literally what today is for :)

National Today says, “National Chocolate Day, celebrated each October 28, is nothing short of a special tribute to mankind’s greatest culinary invention. (Sorry, pizza.) Chocolate can enhance even the most luxurious dessert items. On the other hand, you can get your fix from a simple candy bar. Hint: Try for chocolate with a “high cacao” percentage and low added sugar.”

They also say the best ways to celebrate include making your own chocolate, touring local chocolatiers, and/or sharing a bar with your friends.

“Chocolate is amazing, friends are amazing, and human connection over chocolate is one of the most beautiful things! Most people like chocolate, and really, even if they don't, you know they'll appreciate the offer to spend a moment with them and chat.”
