As the premier chocolatier in the Reno area, Dorinda’s Chocolates offers some of the best handcrafted, artisan, and organic chocolates in all of Nevada—and even extending into California. Known to her beloved customers as the “Duchess of Chocolate”, owner Dorinda Vance began making chocolates at the early age of 12 and has since become an expert at all things sweet, from truffles to caramels and even chocolate-covered cherries.
After realizing her love for chocolate, Dorinda studied at E’cole Chocolat and Berry Callebaut, notable chocolate academies that teach not only the best chocolate-making techniques, but the science behind what makes the perfect piece of sweet goodness. Since beginning her career as a professional chocolatier, Dorinda has gone on to receive numerous awards for her skills, including “Best: Most Original Taste” for her sea salt caramels.
To uphold her title as the best chocolatier in Nevada, Dorinda’s Chocolates only uses the freshest, most wholesome ingredients to carefully craft the most delicious chocolate and candies around. Using culinary components like the finest cocoa powder, premium nuts, and even freshly-squeezed lemon juice to make her favored lemon truffles, Dorinda is committed to serving up only the best handcrafted chocolates to her appreciative customers. At Dorinda’s Chocolates, the ultimate goal is to satisfy their customers’ taste buds, and with the best melt-in-your-mouth chocolates and candies in the Reno area, they’re sure to leave you craving more.
