In the previous home of Truckee Book & Bean, another shop has taken over the old brick building near the Truckee River. Dorinda's Chocolates offers hand-dipped, hand-crafted chocolates and sweets including signature chocolate-covered cherries and award-winning sea salt caramels.
The owner of this delectable Truckee shop is Dorinda Vance who has been creating chocolates since she was 12 years old. It's a family-run business, so Dorinda's sons are sure to learn a lot of her chocolate-making secrets as they help out behind the counter.

Her specialties include a seasonal Pumpkin Truffle, Peppermint Bark, Peanut Butter Bombs and "Dori-Os," which are sandwich cookies dipped in various flavors of chocolate. In addition, Dorinda's offers gluten-free chocolate for those with dietary restrictions. Her cafe also sells homemade hot chocolate, Alpen Sierra coffee, Tahoe Teas, sandwiches and soup. She even has free WiFi.
Don't miss this shop with a big heart and fantastic flavors.
