ChocolateSmith opened their modern, antiseptically clean shop on Cerrillos Road in 2003. They now have two additional Santa Fe locations: one at the Santa Fe Farmer's Market and one in the Plaza Galleria on San Francisco Street. The shop's specialty is chocolate pâté. Ganache is shaped, chilled and then hand-dipped ten times in the same European-style wax that coats Gouda cheese. It comes in a variety of shapes and flavors. The secret to their chocolates is they're handmade daily using premium ingredients including locally sourced and organic when they can. Bestsellers include Don Juan Pecan Caramel, Green Chile Pistachio Bark and Toffee Almond Bark. New this year: craft caramels in a range of flavors including Tequila Lime, Maple Coconut, PB & C (peanut butter and chile), Lemon Thyme and Chocolate Crème. Candy gift items run from $4.95 to $35. Of course, you can spend more!
