Chocolatier Joann Hofer was first exposed to her elaborate craft while living in Austria. With a background in painting, she quickly recognized chocolate making as its own art form, a medium that eventually led her to open Xchocol'Art, a storefront in a romantic narrow alley off Main Street in Carmel's Art & Design District. Hofer fills the glass case of her contemporary-chic store with Award Winning chocolate truffles . Chocolatier gourmet gifts carefully curated gift boxes make exceptional gifts.
Working in small batches, our chocolate gifts are made by hand while taking care of each detail. From start to finish, each recipe is a three day process. Each step must be executed to perfection in order to achieve the end result in an outstanding product. Our chocolate is produced in our state of the art, modern, commercial kitchen solely dedicated to chocolate.
Our chocolate is carefully selected...after all, it is the most important ingredient in our recipes. We have visited the cocoa farms in Ecuador where we source some of our couverture.
Joann continually takes professional chocolatier classes to keep up with the latest trends in flavor and process.
