Looking for a special gift or just a fancy treat for yourself? Artisanal chocolates are so much more than the mass-produced stuff sold in supermarkets. From chocolate truffles to slabs and so much more – here are the best artisanal chocolates in Singapore!

3. Lemuel Chocolate
Lemuel Chocolate started out as a small chocolate workshop in 2017 that produced small batches of quality goodness. They source and import quality cacao beans from cacao farmers and reputable cacao agents around the world. Then they manually sort, roast, crack, winnow and grind them into the individual uniquely delicious chocolate. Other than their single-origin chocolate bars to special chocolate gift boxes, make sure to also check out their workshops!

The first dark chocolate boutique concept in Singapore, The Dark Gallery offers handcrafted, single-origin chocolates all made right on site in their kitchen! You’ll be spoilt for choice with their glossary of dark indulgences like artisanal ice cream, bonbons, pralines and dark chocolate pouches.

5. Fossa Chocolate
A homegrown brand, Fossa Chocolate is an award-winning artisanal bean-to-bar craft chocolate maker. You’ll find some really unconventional flavours here, like Chilli Peanut Praliné Dark Chocolate and Duck Shit Dancong Tea Chocolate, but newcomers can also look to the likes of Blueberry Lavender & Oats and Lychee Rose Dark Milk Chocolate to try their very best!
6. Janice Wong Singapore
Look to multi award-winning chef Janice Wong for some of the most Instagrammable bonbons on this earth.

And the edible crayons are sure to be a hit with the kids!
