‘Old World’ Belgian chocolate at Chocodiem in Clinton

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, we’ve all got chocolate on the brain.

However, Jean-Paul Hepp, founder and co-owner of Chocodiem, and Katherine MacDonnell, creative director of the Belgium artisan chocolate local chain, are thinking fine chocolates every day of the year.

The company’s high-end “Old World” Belgian chocolates are hand-made from locally sourced, fresh ingredients from farms in Pennsylvania and New Jersey when possible.

With items such as red wine truffles using Tolino Vineyards cabernet sauvignon ($42 for 12), craft beer truffles infused with cacao porter from Shawnee Brewery ($2.40 per piece) and espresso truffles made with Fieldstone’s Kickin Goat espresso ($2.20 per piece), it’s impossible not to taste the difference.
