About our shop

We source premium ingredients to produce amazing flavor combinations that will keep you wanting more. The quality and flavor of our chocolate is the foundation upon which our sophisticated offerings are built as we utilize our own unique chocolate blends. The ganaches found in our truffles are rich, complex and truly melt-worthy. Our caramels are buttery and decadent in the best kind of way and then drenched in our signature chocolate.

Meet Jason & Trish

We are inspired by our beautiful home of Boise, Idaho – from the mountains to the orchards – and produce chocolates that utilize local ingredients and flavor combinations. We are also inspired by our travels internationally, introducing limited edition chocolates that imbue the spirit of the many incredible places we’ve been to or long to visit. As longtime fans of The Chocolat Bar, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to purchase the business when the founding owners were ready to retire. We are honored to carry on the legacy of The Chocolat Bar. It is our goal to keep the spirit of everything the founding owners worked so hard to build – the best tasting handmade artisan chocolates where there is always a friendly face in beautiful Boise, Idaho. We are fortunate to have an amazing team in place that helps make this happen every day. Our craft confections are made in microbatches in our downtown Boise location.  

Jason is a trained chocolatier and brings years of experience in formulation chemistry, managing a manufacturing facility,  and restaurant management to the business.  Trish brings years of marketing and management experience as well.  We have always loved cooking together, and are passionate about exploring new flavors and culinary experiences.  We have two beautiful children, and have lived in Boise together for over 15 years.  Jason is from Montana, and Trish is from the Treasure Valley.  We love travelling internationally, and spending time together as a family experiencing everything Idaho and the Northwest has to offer.   We hope to meet you soon!

Happy Customers

We are honored to have so many loyal customers! Here are what a few of them have to say:


This is the best chocolate I have ever tasted. It is like my own little slice of heaven!!!


Oh. My. Word. I had the opportunity today to try some candies from The Chocolat Bar...seriously OUTSTANDING!!! I'm a new fan!!!


Best chocolate EVER!


Best gift-giving location, hands down...legitimately my care-package-extravaganza location. Having family all over the nation is crazy - but having local shops like The Chocolat Bar makes it easier to send those tasty treats!

We feature Granny Smith caramel-covered apples during our Fall Harvest Festival. The caramel from The Chocolat Bar is rich, easy to work with and a huge customer favorite. The caramel is hard to resist!


I bought some peanut butter and jelly truffles while we were on vacation there in Boise and they are RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING! They are my new favorite!


These are the most amazing caramels ever!!!!


I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Hawaiian Sea Salt Caramel and the Crème Brûlée truffle.
