Great little chocolate shop locate outside the entrance to Dixon State Park. The creativity in design choices are very imaginative. The chocolate is very good and the staff very friendly. They also have an Ice Cream counter.

Their ice cream is good but staff isn't friendly. Once our group got their ice cream then we had to get in another line of people paying for their chocolate.

We stopped here for something to do while camping. Lots of fun molded chocolate to look at (and buy). They have a good selection of ice cream flavors to choose from. They also have fudge which is one of my son's favorites.

Great homemade chocolate treats, candy, and fudge. Also a great place to stop in for a hand scooped ice cream cone after a hike at Dixon Springs State park right across the road, or a day swimming in the pool at Dixon Springs State Park....More
