Best of Boston

2008 Best Chocolatier

Chocolee Chocolates

With her jewel-like bonbons (exhibits A and B: dark chocolate filled with white chocolate and Chambord, and wafer-thin Viennese almond bark), Lee Napoli has brought a new level of artistry to Boston’s confectionery scene. It’s not just that the flavors are fresh as can be; Napoli’s creations look gorgeous, too. Stop by the South End shop on a weekend morning for a trio of fried-to-order beignets oozing, naturally, with warm, luscious chocolate.
