How Sweet It Is: Two Top-notch Shops for Treats

Nothing goes with winter better than indulging in something sweet. If you’re out looking for Christmas gifts or just on the prowl for a chocolate fix, these two shops should not be missed.


Located at 1823 Doty Street in a residential neighborhood in Oshkosh, Hughes’ Home Maid Chocolate Shop (920-231-7232) serves up some truly marvelous chocolates. This humble shop is located in a basement, but don’t let that fool you – they make some of the best candy in the world. Crack into a piece of their toffee and you’ll be an instant convert.

Hiding in the Minocqua Area in Oneida County, you’ll find chocolate heaven. Using the finest ingredients and Ghirardelli chocolate, Laurel V’s Fine Chocolates creates some of the best chocolates in the Badger State. The tiny shop’s truffles are known for their velvety richness. And the appearance of all of Laurel V’s candy creations is second to none. Next time you’re in the Northwoods, visit this delightful shop.
