There’s nothing quite like discovering a new twist on an old favourite.

If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary to satisfy your chocolate cravings, you need to check out these quirky desserts!

Chocolate poutine

Chocolats Favoris knows what it means to indulge, and this treat is no exception. Their chocolate poutine is a combination of donut fries and marshmallow “cheese curds” doused in melted chocolate (there are twelve flavours to choose from).

It’s all served on top of a layer of soft serve so finishing this might be a two person job. Then again, maybe not.

    Thursday & Friday, 11 a.m. — 9 p.m.

Warm cookie ice cream sandwiches

If you don’t mind getting a little messy with your chocolate, then The Cookie Guy has you covered with delicious, melty ice cream sandwiches. They’ve got three varieties of chocolate chip cookies plus a gluten-sensitive option.

You can even mix and match two different cookies in one sandwich! For true chocolate devotees, we recommend chocolate ice cream between two chocolate chip cookies drizzled with chocolate sauce. Now that’s what we call pure bliss.

Salted habanero rosemary chocolates

Bernard Callebaut chocolates come in all sorts of unique flavour combinations. However, their new salted habanero rosemary chocolates (available in milk and dark) are particularly memorable.

This spicier than the average chili-infused chocolate is aromatic and contains complex flavours that leave you wanting more. Perfect for adventurous chocolate connoisseurs.

Vegan chocolate cremes

While everything at Pure Lovin’ is vegan, chocolate cremes are where their innovation shines through. Available in peppermint, maple, and orange, you’d never guess that these sweet treats are completely dairy-free. Delicious and ethical!

    Sunday, 11 a.m. — 5 p.m.

White chocolate dog bones

A chocolate shop might not be the most obvious place to sell dog treats. But that hasn’t stopped Rocky Mountain Chocolate from creating white chocolate dipped dog bones (without a trace of theobromine, making it safe for your fur baby to eat).

Satisfy your pup’s sweet tooth and pick up a “Barker’s Dozen” today.
