Mmmmm Chocolate….. Locally made chocolate (its a MUST stop on L Street)

The best thing and the worst thing about the holidays are the treats.  The cookies and the chooooocolate.   Boxes and boxes around the office.    I have loved mother “See’s candies all my life.  Godiva never did it for me…      Someone dropped off a small box of treats from  Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates located  in midtown and from that day forward its been mother who?


Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates offers sublime decadence for you and gourmet gifts for the people on your list. Customers may drop in at the store’s Midtown location (Candy Tong is seen here getting assistance from G.E. employee Lilli), or feel free to order online.

Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates are more costly than See’s or Cadbury, but you get what you pay for. Take the Palet d’Or, a cube of chocolate ganache “enrobed” in dark chocolate from Venezuela and garnished with gold leaf. We dare you to find another item that decadent for under $2. The candies can be easily procured at the Ginger Elizabeth Midtown boutique or ordered online and shipped anywhere in the country. If you’re on a budget, a $12 box of six chocolates makes a lovely gift. If money is no object, $140 buys a large hat box overflowing with multiple gourmet candy bars, a 48-piece box of chocolates, hot cocoa mix and chocolate-covered candied almonds.
