See you at the Broad Ripple and Carmel Farmer's Market Saturday Mornings!
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 . Her chocolate shop is filled with unique chocolate gifts that will inspire both in the giving and the receiving.
Working in small batches, our chocolate gifts are made by hand while taking care of each detail. From start to finish, each recipe it is a three day process. Each step must be executed to perfection in order to achieve the perfect end result.
Our chocolate is carefully selected. After all, it is the most important ingredient in our recipes. We have visited the cocoa farms in Ecuador. Joann continually takes professional chocolatier classes to keep up with the latest trends in flavor and process.
A space dedicated to the process and perfection of chocolate.
