Made in small batches by hand from the finest ingredients and elegantly packaged, the chocolates from this boutique Los Angeles chocolatier combine the creaminess of creamy truffles and the intense flavor and texture of rich fudge—with heavenly results. Their incredible chocolates deservedly earned the Sofi™ Award for “Outstanding Chocolate” from the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade.

About The Food

John Kelly Chocolates uses only premium natural or organic ingredients, including Belgian Callebaut chocolate, to create their unparalleled chocolates. JKC’s legendarily creamy and rich truffle fudge features a silky ganache-like center that’s coated with luscious semi-sweet chocolate, resulting in truly blissful, unforgettably dreamy chocolates. They also happen to be kosher and gluten-free.

Meet The Owner

In 2005, John Kelson and Kelly Green opened a small chocolate factory in Los Angeles to immediate fanfare from luxury clients like Neiman Marcus and Ritz-Carlton. In 2010, to satisfy the requests of passersby who smelled their chocolate from the street, they opened a shop on Sunset Boulevard. In 2012, a sister location followed in Santa Monica. “It’s never been about how to make more money.” says co-owner John Kelson. “It’s been about providing the best tasting chocolate." This simple reason, plus some serious chocolate-making talents, explains why John Kelly’s chocolates seduce even the most discriminating chocolate lovers.
