I order their truffles and chocolates on a regular basis as I havent tasted any other chocolates as wonderful as these.

The new owners have done an amazing job! Still the same delicious chocolates but now MORE options! Love it!

Best Chocolate in Southern Wisconsin!

Swiss pralines are The Chocolate Caper’s specialty.  They’ve been a favorite of mine since I discovered them at the Dane County Farmers’ Market.  A delicate blend of hazelnut or almond butter and pure dark, milk or white chocolate, they’re virtually guaranteed to transport you to melt-in-your-mouth chocolate heaven.  If you’re fortunate enough to live near Oregon, Wis., you owe it to yourself to stop by and try a free sample.  If that’s not an option, their Praline Assortment, which can be ordered by phone, is a great way to discover your favorites!

The Chocolate Caper has been a frequent stop for our chocolate fix for many years. Great chocolate and very nice people. They make the real stuff…Nothing in their chocolate to keep it from melting, just the real deal.

I LOVE THIS PLACE.  It’s small and it’s nothing fancy in decor but those chocolates are the best around!  I’ve been to Switzerland and I felt like I was back there again.  The man that owes it with his wife is such a sweetheart, I could have talked to him all day if I didn’t have to get back to work.  I can hardly wait to get back there for more, there’s nothing better than great service, greatttt chocolate and down to earth people.

The shop is in a rather unassuming store front in the downtown area.  You walk in and notice the medals that they have one for their chocolate hanging on the door handle.  Second thing is the wonderful smell in the shop of high quality chocolate.  The owners Claude and Ellen are wonderful people and were willing to talk about their chocolate as well as anything that was fun or interesting.  Very warm people.  We will definitely be going back!  Oh yes, the most important part is the excellent chocolates!  WOW!  Their dark chocolate leaves such a wonderful taste in your mouth and it lingers making the enjoyment last longer.

This place looks like nothing….but it is everything!  This is the store to go to if you JUST NEED CHOCOLATE NOW. It’s an addiction, I know, but here’s the place to get that fix. Rich, carmelly chocolate that is fudgy and melty and all-together so intense that it takes me four servings to go through a single piece. The service is great, and you won’t want to leave, even if kitch/gnomes turns you off.

Hands down the best chocolate I’ve ever had!… I’ve had the dark and milk peanut butter pralines and let me tell you,  it’d warrants a drive from Madison for – it’s so good!

Had a ninja turtle cookie at a birthday party over the weekend. It was gorgeous and tasted incredible.

My son’s train cake looked amazing and was delicious! Everyone loved it and I have a feeling he’ll remember it for a long time.

Best chocolate I’ve ever had and the service is great!

Steph H. Oregon, WI

I love the chocolate and looking for a reason to visit every day!

Jeanne S. Oregon, WI

I ordered a dozen cookies to be shipped to North Carolina. They arrived in the blink of an eye and all intact…ALL of them! The aroma wafting from the box set my mouth to watering, the creative designs were a feast to my eyes and the best part…they tasted like angel kisses! Grade A+++ all around! Keep up the good work cause I’ll definitely be back!

Mandi S. Rutherfordton, NC

Hands down the best chocolate I’ve ever had!

They stick to what they know which is decadent, melty, praline chocolate which have the same consistency as truffles. Rich and smooth – so heavenly!

Recently under new ownership,  they are slowly beginning to experiment with other options such as chocolate dipped beer and wine gels with IPA, Stout, White Merlot and Reds, as well as peanut butter pralines!

I’ve had the dark and milk peanut butter pralines and let me tell you,  it’d warrants a drive from Madison for – it’s so good!

The owners alluded to the possibility of a bakery sprouting from the shop soon!

Everyone knows this is the place, so make your orders for the holidays in October/November!
Not being an addict, I could only give it four stars.

I LOVE THIS PLACE.  It’s small and it’s nothing fancy in decor but those chocolates are the best around!  I’ve been to switzerland and I felt like I was back there again.  The man that owes it with his wife is such a sweetheart, I could have talked to him all day if I didn’t have to get back to work.  I can hardly wait to get back there for more, there’s nothing better than great service, greatttt chocolate and down to earth people.

For superior chocolate their pricing isn’t that bad.  Very reasonable for what you get.

The Chocolate Caper has been a frequent stop for our chocolate fix for many years. Great chocolate and very nice people. They make the real stuff, so in the hot months, we have to go without. Nothing in their chocolate to keep it from melting, just the real deal.
