Best Chocolate 

Lilly Handmade Chocolate

This little pink shop, tucked in an obscure corner of Tremont, is well worth searching for. You won't find case after case of the standard peanut clusters/caramels/mint melts here. Rather, Lilly offers a small but choice selection of their own handmade truffles that combine exotic ingredients in delectable pieces that are also little edible works of art. Random sample creations: the Cinnabunny, which features Vietnamese cinnamon, ground ginger, and clove honey in dark chocolate; and the Maui Wowee, with Madagascar vanilla bean and Hawaiian black lava sea salt in a heart-shaped white-chocolate container decorated with yellow smiley faces. The roster of about 20 varieties is constantly changing, so you need to stop in to see what they've come up with lately. Lilly also carries craft beers and fine wines, and they'll happily suggest pairings with their chocolates.
