Delysia Chocolatier Culinary Center


My passion is to bring European style chocolate to Texas and beyond.  Our Culinary Center has become a key factor in the success of that goal.  Our center is more than a production facility, it’s a space where customers can get the full experience of what we do here at Delysia Chocolatier. I welcome you to expand your palette and broaden your views of what chocolate can taste like. With exceptional flavors like Chicken Honey Biscuit and Smoked Salted Bourbon Pecan, we offer a fresh take on traditional Parisian style truffles.

It is my pleasure to introduce you to the newest members of the Delysia family, Melissa & Anna. We have been having a fun and busy start to the fall season. Please stop by the Culinary Center and say ‘Hi’!
