As early beginners working with Marie Antoinette and then Napoleon Bonaparte, this chocolatier shop knows a few things about chocolate. They offer a huge selection of chocolates such as Marie Antoinette pistoles, Neapolitan Croquamandes, Chocolate Bars, Truffles, Ganaches, Mandeliens and for refreshment, Teas. We recommend trying their Marie Antoinette pistoles, since this chocolatier shop would of not begin due to her.

I absolutely adore the beauty that Jacque Genin transform sweets and chocolates. This chocolatier is more of an experience of the chocolate than just the taste. You will see that in how the store front is designed and the sweets are displayed. They offer ganaches, pralines, pate de fruits, nougats and gourmet bars. We recommend either trying their pate de fruits or their ganache pralines.

Pierre Marcolini entwines the beauty of presentation with the taste of their chocolates in their chocolate truffles, macarons and chocolate tablets. The smoothness of their chocolates is evident in their gift baskets of pralines. For a sweet taste, we recommend trying their lemon tea macarons. Just thinking about their treats makes me so hungry!
La Maison du Chocolat
8 Boulevard de la Madeleine, Paris, IDF, FR 75009
La Maison du Chocolat has been around the 1990s offering amazing chocolate pieces, truffles, pralines and assortments. We recommend if you are looking for a gift for a family or friend on your trip to Paris, to get one of their assortment boxes here. They also offer vegan options for anyone who prefers vegan options. They also offer their chocolates here in the United States, so if you are unable to go to Paris, here is the link to their website.
