Hi Everyone-
We have some important news to share with everyone regarding our closure in July, as well as some general news items:

    We are excited to announce you can now place orders online! Just click the link or button above, or click here to shop our online store.

    We are also in the midst of redesigning the website and introducing an updated logo. The new website will go-live in May, and will modernize our site, provide tons of information and answers to common questions, and host our new blog in which we will discuss a wide variety of topics from why chocolate is good for you to what those lines on top of the praliné mean to topics that have nothing to do with chocolate. Best of all, the new site will offer a full-featured online store, with the ability to order all of our gift boxes as well as a variety of single items so you can effectively build your own box.

    Finally, please visit us at ChocolateFest 2015, May 22-26, 2015 in Burlington, WI. We are excited to share our chocolate with people visiting from all over the state, and with visitors from outside of Wiscosin as well!

    As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you have. We look forward to seeing you in the store, and now, onine as well!

    Hello Everyone-

    The Chocolate Caper will be closed December 25th, 2014 - January 5, 2015, and will reopen with a fresh batch of chocolate on January 6, 2015. During the coming days we will be celebrating with our family and enjoying some time off before beginning again for the New Year.

    We want to thank everyone for making our first season a great success. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2015!

    Hi Everyone,

    As some of you already know, our good friend of 16 years, Patti, was going to purchase The Chocolate Caper. In July she suffered a major stroke. It was devastating for all of us. After consulting with Patti’s family we decided to move forward. We were pleased to discover that the Donoghues were interested in the business. Despite their evident enthusiasm, they were kind and showed patience and sensitivity for our sadness. We were delighted to see how quickly they picked up the skills they need to run the business – especially making the chocolate!

    Thank you all for the memories. We’ll see you this winter season.

    -Claude & Ellen

    Hello Everyone-

    We are excited Ellen and Claude are passing The Chocolate Caper into our hands. We are looking forward to carrying on its legacy and traditions while having the opportunity to add our own twist to the store. “We” are Dan and Elizabeth Donoghue. We have lived in Oregon and been a part of the community for more than 10 years and have four children. Elizabeth has a background as a talented baker, decorator and artist. Dan has an eclectic background including management, customer service and cooking.

    Claude and Ellen have taken us under their wing and shown us the how to make Swiss praliné and The Chocolate Caper’s other treats since August. They will continue to mentor and guide us through this, our first holiday season and into the future. We are looking forward to running it and continuing to grow it with a family-based, community-oriented philosophy. More than anything else, we are excited to make great chocolate and meet everyone who has enjoyed it in the past, as well as creating memorable experiences for new visitors!

    We know everyone will be patient with us as we learn the nuances of operating the Caper, especially since we are taking over during the busiest time of year! We have started taking orders for the upcoming holiday season.

    For order information and updates, please visit our website or stop by the shop after November 8th, 2014. To place an order, you can print out an order form from the website and mail it to us, drop it at the store or e-mail it to or call us at 608-835-9294.

    We look very forward to meeting everyone, and helping to make the special moments in your lives a bit more magical – please stop in to say “Hello” (and, of course, have some chocolate).

    Dan & Elizabeth

    PS: You may notice the word “bakery” in our name – this is a hint of what will be coming in the future.
