A Sweet Connecticut Trail Hartford CC Residents will Love

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, and chocolate being synonymous with the love-filled holiday, we thought we’d provide you with chocolatiers and local chocolate artisans best known for their craft in the Nutmeg state.

We beckon you to take your sweetie on a tasting trip through Connecticut’s “Chocolate Trail”. Yup, these are sweet spots throughout the state (courtesy of CT Visit) where you can stop, nibble, and bask your senses in the candy that never disappoints.
