Imagine perfection manifesting itself as rich, dark chocolate caressing your taste buds. As the delicate shell gives way, the pure liquid flavor essence cascades into your mouth. A small sigh escapes your lips. Your body relaxes and suddenly you remember where you misplaced your smile.

Did someone say chocolate??? Well, in Fredericksburg, TX there’s this little gem called Quintessential Chocolates. Love how you get one free sample (the hook…LOL) and if you’re over 21 they have wine and alcohol filled delights. The chocolates are amazing and the liquor ones…INCREDIBLE. I’ve had many alcohol filled chocolates, but none ever tasted like my “free sample” Pecan St Rum. While the outer shell is dark chocolate, you feel like you’re sipping on some pecan rum too. A wonderful combination of flavors that don’t overpower, but magnify each other’s specific character. I was also impressed with owner Lecia Duke’s creation of a Purple Heart confection honoring the military and combat wounded veterans. If you are a Veteran, you get one free and it is a beautiful piece of chocolate artwork. I read an article about her…seems she did an apprenticeship at Lindt…one of my favorite chocolates. Huge shout out to Izabell…she did an excellent job handing out samples and explaining all of the different confections.

Wow! With some many chocolates it was hard to choose. I picked up a 6 count box, plus 3 different types of bark for gifts for family when I get home. I highly recommend visiting this neat place. I personally am looking forward to trying the salted caramel.The staff were super friendly and patient while I made my selections too.

We stumbled upon this chocolate shop. We are a bit snooty about chocolate having spent lots of time overseas eating the best. I always ask a shop for a taste of the dark chocolate truffle. At this location, I had to pay. Oh well, but it was really very nice. Firm shell and soft dense inside. Fantastic. We left to check out other chocolate shops but came back to buy two assortment boxes and a Mayan styled bar. We also tasted the filled chocolates they are famous for. Mine was filled with a cabernet. The lady's chocolate was filled with a cherry sauce. They are unique tasting. They use a Swiss tool to make the chocolate. Overall, we really like this shop. They have other knickknacks for sale. We will go back.

Fantastic chocolates! Great staff and customer service. Had a recent Christmas order, there were issues with the website, order wasn't processed which caused a delay. It was a Christmas gift, so they covered the overnight shipping to try and get it there by Christmas. Spoke with and traded emails with Peter who was extremely helpful! Make sure you stop by when in Fredericksburg TX. Recommend the liquor filled chocolates, Tennessee whisky, Bourbon and Orange Liquor!

Great chocolates and great staff. We stopped by one time while in Fredericksburg and really enjoyed the chocolates (especially the alcohol variety). The staff was very friendly and patient while we figured out what all we wanted to get. We liked them so much so that we used their online ordering for several boxes as gifts. They package them well and keep them cool. There was a small error in our order but they were quick to respond and quickly shipped out an additional box to complete the order. Very responsive and friendly. A must stop while in Fredericksburg and/or order some online, they are worth it.

What an amazing experience my family and I had . They have chocolate for everyone. My mom is a diabetic and they had tasty treats even she could have safely. I have food sensitivities and I too was able to enjoy. We ended up coming back twice in one day. Will definitely be back.

Went here with my family. Truly a unique experience. You have not had chocolate like this!We were lucky that when we arrived they were not super busy and we were able to meet the owner. She was so kind and we enjoyed talking with her about the chocolate and her business. Highly recommend! ❤️

First things first, when a friend, who lives in California, tells you that you can't leave Fredericksburg without stopping by Quintessential Chocolates, you stop by. I was NOT DISAPPOINTED! Not only were the staff very knowledgeable and friendly, they made the experience so much fun, just by treating you as a person when you walk in, not just a transaction. I appreciate the explanations and the wide variety of delicious treats they have available. The liquor filled ones were AMAZING! We loved this place and will definitely be ordering more online, and visiting EVERY TIME we're in this town! Keep up the great job, and keep crushing it! Lecia, you've trained your people well, and your work is spectacular!

Delicious chocolate that definitely deserves for you to stop by. Everything we ordered was delicious - caramel and pecan filled chocolate, different flavored chocolate barks, and southern pecan coffee filled chocolates. Try for yourself, you will not be disappointed!

Wow these are the best chocolates we've ever had! I wish we would have taken a picture of the pretty chocolates in the box we picked out. We spent about $20 on a box of about 10 chocolates, 2 pieces of fudge & a toffee bark. Everything was amazing. We are planning to go back before we leave town. I also tried a sample of the amaretto chocolate which was delicious.

The best specialty chocolate shop I have ever been too. The chocolate is hand made. You must go if in Fredricksburg. If you like liquor they chocolates filled with liquor.
