Dorinda’s is owned and operated by the “Duchess of Chocolate” herself, along with her son Dustin. She has had a knack for making chocolates since her first batch of chocolate dipped cherries when she was 12 years old. 

One of our favorite spring holidays is Mother’s Day. What better way to show appreciation to the woman who raised you by giving her what she really wants: artisan chocolate! With our wide lineup of choices, you can’t go wrong with any of our decadent flavors.

As a family business, you won’t find anything less than the best. Learn more about Dorinda and the business with this fun interview here! 

Shop locally in Reno this year and you’ll be sure to find unique and one-of-a-kind gifts! Our top customer favorites include: 

Sea-Salt Caramels: As our number one seller, the Reno chocolate market has never been the same since this sweet treat hit the shelves. With a sweet and salty outer balance combined with non-sticky caramel, it’s perfect for everyone’s palettes and chocolate preferences. 

The Kraken: This is Dorinda’s favorite piece, a delightfully crunchy and smooth European-style chocolate. Dark chocolate covers a hazelnut flavored praline biscotti as a crunchy first bite. Despite the name, there’s nothing to fear here except for deliciousness!  

Tasting Bar Collection: Who wouldn’t want to sample plenty of treats from our Tasting Bar Collection? Perfect for more than just Mother’s Day, this bundle consists of four different tasting bars: the Inspiration Collection in Valrhona 62%, Raspberry Pistachio in Valrhona white chocolate, The Hub Espresso Grounds in Valrhona white chocolate, and California almonds in 62% Valrhona dark chocolate. We hope your mouth is watering as well after reading that! 

Mother's Day Box: Dorinda's Chocolates Mother's Day Box makes for the perfect gift for any mom! Bite into an array of our most beloved truffles in this indulgent combination box which includes both milk, dark, & white chocolate pieces.
