Local Chocolatiers

The Southwest Coffee & Chocolate Fest is this weekend at Expo NM, so we’re featuring a few of the local chocolatiers who are participating in the popular event. Tickets are still on sale online and only cost $10 for a day pass. Just think of all the free samples you can get from the over 125 vendors exhibiting at the fest. Discover a new favorite locally roasted coffee, indulge your sweet tooth and attend any number of workshops on brewing techniques, the history of coffee and the art of sugar. We may not be able to grow much chocolate or coffee out here in the desert, but boy have we figured out how to make it tasty.

ChocGlitz & Cream

If you find yourself out on the Westside, be sure to make a stop here. Made with fresh ingredients right in the store, ChocGlitz offers chocolates, housemade ice cream sold by the pint and quart, as well as ice cream cakes and pies. Also totally awesome: Their sweet and pretty chocolate confections are certified Fair Trade. From mint patties to chocolate-dipped fruit to unicorn bark, this sugar shop has you covered.

Chocolate Cartel

315 Juan Tabo Blvd NE Ste A (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87123
(505) 797-1193
Mon-Fri 11am-6pm Sat noon-4pm (hours can change without notice)
“No shortcuts," says Master Chocolatier Scott Van Rixel. And he means it. A rigorous work ethic is the guiding principal behind the confections made at Chocolate Cartel, which Van Rixel co-owns with his brother, Tim. "We try to do everything as old-school and authentic as we can." Most of what Chocolate Cartel produces is European-style truffles, flourless chocolate cakes, chocolate-covered nuts, bars, even made-from-scratch gelato—all roasted, rolled, dipped and packed by hand. But tucked in there is a Mayan drinking chocolate based on an ancient formula. With freshly ground almonds, cinnamon and red chile, "It's what the king would drink," Van Rixel says.

Floor-to-ceiling shelves boast gift baskets and bags, chocolate sculptures and molded items, giant "kisses" and sugar-free assortments. A chilled candy case shimmers with an assortment of chocolate truffles, creams and caramels sold by the piece. The counter is heaped with our favorite items, mostly chocolate poured over salty, crunchy things like pretzels, popcorn, nuts and cookies. Also, look for chocolate-covered strawberries and Taos Cow ice cream in eight flavors.
