Bacon toffee from Chocolate F/X. You can find Chocolate F/X's treats at several shops around town, including Pine Street Market in Avondale Estates and Schakolad Chocolate Factory in Sandy Springs.

You say, “I have to go with Chocolate F/X. When you are a kid you dream of combining all the things you love in to one yummy package and I haven’t found anything better than bacon chili praline chocolate covered toffee. Hands down the yummiest!”

1. Cacao Atlanta Chocolate Company
The AJC dining team’s specialist in Southern and Neighborhood Fare Jenny Turknett says, “If you are looking for an upscale chocolaterie, this is it. Cacao has the whole package.  Every detail from the decor of the shop to the crafting of the chocolate has been carefully considered. With the utmost respect for the chocolate, truffle flavorings are mild lest they overpower the rich flavor of the chocolate. My favorites from Cacao include the domino bar, coconut dulce de leche truffle and the sipping chocolate with Aztec spices — the stuff dreams are made of.”

K Chocolate / Cacao absolutely the best in town. I’m from Milan Italy but when i have a chocolate craving i’m use to have a big Cacao box shipped to me in Italy.

Cacao, no question. Run by beautiful, chocolate-wise ladies, Cacao is a tiny, tucked-away treasure in the highlands. There’s nothing else quite like it; it’s where I always go to buy gifts for friends and family. The flavors are rich, decadent and unexpected, and always done right. You can buy boring milk choclate at the grocery store. Cacao takes you from the bean all the way to the bar and does it with panache. Or better yet, ganache. it’s the real deal.

Cacao Atlanta Chocolate Co. no doubt. The real deal from the bean – pure- sourced by Kristen herself nationally recognized and most importantly created with love.

Order a gift basket from Brother’s General Store in Columbus, GA. They make some of the best fudge and truffles known to man. They will ship gift baskets virtually all over the world. They’ve even shipped overseas to Iraq and Afghanistan to soldiers who were stationed in Fort Benning. Really good stuff!

Spammed Again!

Chocolate F/X! Delicious and very creative!
Using flavors like cayenne, whiskey and bacon add an interesting twist to amazing chocolates.

Chocolate F/X for the win. Amazing flavors and equally amazing unique and creative designs!

Styles that range from traditional to custom and the flavor and texture cannot be out done. Local chocolate, local southern flavors. Delicious!
Chocolate F/X is the best:

I have a huge weakness for toffee and have not found anything that matches up to what Chocolate F/X makes. They make a bacon toffee too, I have not tried it though since I am a vegetarian..

OMG! I agree with Valarie on the toffee. I HAVE tried Chocolate F/X’s bacon chili praline chocolate covered toffee and it is quite possibly the best thing I have ever put in my mouth. Definitely the best chocolate in Atlanta!!!
