Did you get chocolates for Valentine’s Day yet? You still have time! DART is here to get you to these sweet spots for fine chocolate and other confections.

Dude, Sweet Chocolate is a chef-driven chocolatier with an ever-changing menu of chocolate treats. The Bishop Arts mainstay is known for novel flavor combinations – think Albatross blue cheese and sea salt fudge, or the “Fungus Amongus” porcini and pumpkin seed toffee. The store is walkable from Bishop Arts Station on the Dallas Streetcar.

Five Mile Chocolate makes bars directly from the bean, and they boast a 75% cacao ratio.  The small batches are crafted with chocolate from all over the world, sourced from sustainable farms. If you’re in the Bishop Arts District, the shop is a short hop; you can also get there on Bus Route 219.

Kate Weiser Chocolate was named one of the Top 10 Chocolatiers in North America by Dessert Professional magazine. Featuring a variety of bonbons and other confections, the gourmet chocolatier has two DARTable locations. Get to the NorthPark Center location by taking the Red or Orange lines to Park Lane Station and then catching the NorthPark Shuttle (Bus Route 402). The Trinity Groves location is accessible by Bus Routes 28 and 106.

Kilwins Plano is a top-notch purveyor of hand-crafted chocolate, along with Mackinac Island fudge and "original recipe" ice cream. The Legacy-area shop is walkable from Bus Route 234.

Kokopelli Sweets is a quaint store with amazing truffles and cordials – as well as bins filled with a variety of sweets. The West End store also makes ice cream.  You can easily walk there from West End Station on all four DART Rail lines.

Lizzie Lu Luxury Treats is an Irving establishment specializing in candy bark, candy apples, butter cakes and other homemade treats. Family-owned for 35 years, the store is accessible by Bus Route 229.
