Gifts Specialty    
Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

Rocky Mountain has hundreds of different kinds of chocolates in more than a dozen categories, as well as unique ways of packaging them. There are chocolates that a particular Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory makes just for that store. It may be a variation on a peanut Cluster - or using a special local delicacy in a Mogul. After all, inventing new ways to enjoy chocolate is the Rocky way.

Remember: There just isn't anywhere else you can watch fudge being made by hand, or breath in the sweet aroma of caramel bubbling in a copper pot.
