Here are a few chocolatey businesses that Yelpers love. Satisfy your sweet tooth at these 5 Cincinnati chocolate confectioneries:
Western Hills and Rookwood

The business has two locations (one in Rookwood Commons and other on Harrison Avenue) and sells tasty treats like truffles, chocolate pretzels, turtles, buckeyes, and more! Not a chocolate fan (gasp!) that’s okay, The Fawn still has ya covered. Stop in for hard candies, carmels, and other classic treats.

Yelpers love this local biz for its quality chocolates, charming shop, and all around customer experience.
