We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: New York City has everything. The newest addition to that list is Voilà Chocolat, a boutique on the Upper West Side where you can actually make and decorate you own chocolates. Think truffles, bars, bark, lollipops and more, created just the way you like ’em. Walk in with a friend on a slow Saturday or reserve space for a fun group activity one evening. Chocolate lovers rejoice, cause this one’s for you.

The UWS chocolatier opened in 2014 and takes great care to use the highest quality ingredients and educate their customers on the whole chocolate-making process. They offer a wide variety of experiences from exquisite truffle-making to chocolate figure-molding. Just choose which experience you’d like, and a chocolatier will guide you through the process. The best part? You customize the whole sha-bang, from your selection of chocolate (white/dark/milk) to add-ins and decorations. The world is your chocolate oyster.

Up in the front of store, they sell tons of sweet confections and whimsical chocolate gifts. You can’t miss their signature frozen hot chocolate, which is worth a trip to Voilà alone. For an extra kick, sip on their spicy frozen hot cocoa. Zagat’s even named Voilà’s Green Tea Hot Chocolate on their ‘10 Hot Cocoas With a Twist‘ list. This spot may just become your new Starbucks stop.

Voilà’s motto is “Make your own happiness” and, lucky for us, their experiences allow you to do just that.
