If you would like to enjoy this delicious treat, the best chocolate shops near our Germantown apartments include:

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

With hundreds of different chocolate candies, it’s no wonder that the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is one of the country’s most favorite confectionery destinations. The founder learned how to make chocolate on a ping pong table. He offers everything from old school favorites to unique creations that aren’t found anywhere else. The varied selection includes Rocky Road fudge, truffle bars, and peanut butter buckets.┬áRocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is a 13-minute drive away.

Lindt Chocolate

Since 1845, Lindt has offered some of the world’s finest chocolate. The chocolatiers have spent generations developing and perfecting their renowned recipes. They start with the finest raw materials and strive to offer treats that melt in your mouth. The truffles are a customer favorite. There are dozens of flavors, with choices including mango & cream, cornet coconut, and sea salt caramel.

Lindt also believes in giving back. That’s why the company has provided clean drinking water for their cacao farmers in Ghana. This water has allowed the farmers and other members of the community to lead healthier, more productive lives.┬áThe nearest Lindst is a 14-minute drive away.


SPAGnVOLA (pronounced spang-vola), located a 14-minute drive away, has been changing the world of chocolate since 2009. The chocolate makers only use cacao beans harvested from the company’s farm in the Dominican Republic. They work out of the factory in Gaithersburg and make the chocolate in small batches. The treats are a local favorite, and they’re recognized as the finest single-estate chocolates. Choices include truffles, chocolate bars, and chocolate-covered strawberries.

The shop also offers a Chocolate Making 101 class. It starts with a factory tour before students make delectable truffles filled with ganache.
