Sweetness in Old Bellevue – Amore Chocolates

A symbol of sweetness in Old Bellevue, Amore Chocolates serves up beautiful hand dipped chocolates to the locals since 2003. Now when we say hand-dipped, we mean hand-dipped, as in every day, Amore’s artisans are behind the counter in plain view hand rolling all sorts of truffles  (several vegan options available as well) including some unique ones  like Guinness, Margarita, German Wheat Beer, Chinese 5 Spice, Curry Ginger, and “The Man,” a 5-10 star spiced dark chocolate truffle inspired by Bellevue’s own Dixie’s BBQ.

When asked about her longevity, especially when other specialty shops have come and gone, owner Brenda Archuletta says that even though these luxury items are not for everyone, the fact that they are are relatively guilt-free and make people feel good, she has built a local, fiercely passionate following. Advice for other small businesses in this economy? Don’t take yourself too seriously, she says. “Be sure of yourself and focus on taking pride in your work.”

Yes it is true that chocolate has been in the news as having all sorts of health benefits. Probably true, but let me be clear, Amore, this local, truly hand-crafted chocolatier in Bellevue is a destination on the Eastside of Seattle. These delicious bites make great gifts for the holidays and we encourage you to stop in or order them online. You and your loved ones will be glad you did!
