We are awaiting news on when our chocolatiers can return to work and we're hoping it is very soon! 

Stay healthy friends! 


As of 3/17/2020, our two brick-and-mortar locations are closed, but staff is completing orders as well as taking new orders via phone and internet. We can ship chocolates anywhere in the U.S. (for the time being), so please get in touch if you need a care package of "extraordinary chocolates by extraordinary people!" 


Highland Chocolates has received guidance from our licensing entity and will be suspending our free factory tours as of March 13th, 2020.  We will resume giving the tours as soon as possible.  Meanwhile, we're all healthy and happily producing Easter chocolates and look forward to seeing everyone at our Open House in April!  Our webstore is available for those who can't make it to our Wellsboro stores, so if you need a 14-30 day supply of delicious chocolates delivered to your doorstep,  we're here for you!  Stay well, friends.

We're be having our Easter Open House on Friday, April 3 and Saturday, April 4, 2020!  The Easter Bunny will be here from 10am-1pm both days, so bring your camera to capture a photo!

Introducing our new 'Sweet Souvenirs' collection!


Our new collection of 'sweet souvenirs' celebrating local attractions!

Turkey Path Fudge – a Rocky Road-style fudge with pecans, caramel and mini-marshmallows named after the Turkey Path trail at Leonard Harrison State Park.

Pine Creek Poppers – dark chocolate squares studded with bacon bits and infused with jalapeno oil. Not for the faint of heart or palate, these are named after our scenic Pine Creek river.

Rainbow Paradise Trout – sweet gummy fish in a rainbow of colors! Named after Rainbow Paradise Fishing Park and Trout Farm.

Valentine's Day Special Orders

We've been busy creating our much loved chocolate Valentine treats and are now ready to start taking orders for our JUMBO caramel/chocolate dipped apples and JUICY fresh chocolate dipped strawberries! Order by February 10th to insure availability on Valentine's Day!  We choose crisp apples and dip them caramel, chocolate or both! You can choose from white, dark, milk, or sugar free chocolate and also choose to have your apple rolled in one of 9 different gourmet toppings!  Our strawberries are dipped in white, dark, milk, or sugar-free chocolate and also can be rolled in a candy/cookie/coconut/pretzel/you-name-it coating!  Make your Valentine swoon with a custom apple or strawberries in their favorite flavors!

Game Day Munchies

As both the college and professional football seasons are wrapping up, we're glued to the TV on game days! Stop by to pick up some salty, sweet, and savory snacks at Highland Chocolates that go great with all your usual game day fare!

January White Sale?

Well, kind of... We are offering a special 2-for-1 deal on our delicious white chocolate eggnog truffles! With a light touch of vanilla and traditional eggnog spices, we think these seasonal truffles are about as sweet as can be! Stop by the store and pick up some while supplies last!
