River Forest Chocolate Covered Strawberries

“Sometimes your hearts speaks best through your hands”

The Chocolates Artisan Shop in River Forest, IL

River Forest Chocolates was founded in 2010, after a lifelong passion for cooking and creating delicious sweets by Madonna Fantetti-Slepicka, with a belief that "Chocolate makes life a little sweeter".

This charming River Forest shop opened March, 2011 at the intersection of Lake Street and Lathrop Avenue, in the heart of River Forest. Our signature English Toffee and Caramels were the benchmark upon opening and continue to be sought after confections. Our River Forest shop has grown and now offers a full compliment of chocolates and confections. Retro candy and "penny" candy have since become a favorite at this shop. Also offered are many seasonal items Lezza Italian Ice, Cotton Candy, Caramel Apples, Candy Apples, Fudge and more.

 In 2013, River Forest Chocolates was awarded the Illinois Green Business Association Award(IGBA). RFC is committed to  always keeping an eye to sustainable resources in the enviroment, production and packaging of their products.

In the Fall of 2017, River Forest Chocolates relocated just three blocks east on lake Street in River Forest. The new larger space  at 7769 lake Street will allow RFC to make Life even sweeter! 

 Chocolate is a wonderful way to thank guests, clients and friends. Perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, dinner parties, weddings, corporate gifts or just a little "Thinking of you!" delicacy.

Highlight your next big day with  personalized individual favors,  a creative party/event tray or an entire sweet table. Always happy to design the ideal and memorable corporate gift that acknowledges and celebrates your business relationships. 

Let River Forest Chocolates make your next special occasion "a little bit sweeter."
