A delicious new store has taken up residence in Tempe Marketplace. Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is best described as a magical wonderland of chocolate and confections that will dazzle your taste buds and satisfy your craving for quality chocolate.

The great thing about Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is that there is something for everyone.

  • Truffles (candy cane, mint, birthday cake, raspberry and much more)
  • A wide variety of caramel apples (apple pie, M&M’s, rocky road, Snickers and more)
  • Caramels
  • English toffee
  • Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory’s signature Peanut Butter Buckets

  • Marshallow “ice cream cones”
  • Gift boxes and baskets
  • Fun and festive seasonal candies

Recently, was invited out for a media tasting of all the delicious chocolates and confections at the new store. Among some of our favorites were the generously-sized sea salt caramels, signature Peanut Butter Buckets and almond bark. But, out of everything we sampled, we totally fell in love with the cookies and cream caramel apple. It was simply a taste symphony that wasn’t too sweet and didn’t make us feel completely guilty when we were finished. The granny smith apple underneath was pleasantly tart and bursting with freshness! If you want to try something fun and different for your next party, pick up a dozen of the sinfully fantastic caramel apples from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and watch your guests go wild!
