River Forest Chocolates

River Forest resident Donna Fantetti-Slepicka opened River Forest Chocolates retail location in 2012. This charming boutique shop is located in the center of town at the intersection of Lake Street and Lathrop Avenue.


This confectionary has quickly become known for their traditional confections, especially English Toffee and caramels including the River Forest Tortoise and Sea Salt Caramels.


River Forest Chocolates take great pride in using the freshest and highest quality ingredients including organic cream and pure cane sugar. In 2013, they became the 47th business in the State of Illinois to receive the IGBA (Illinois Green Business Association) designation. While using the quality ingredients is important, so is the impact on our world.
