    • About

      River Forest Chocolates was founded in 2010 after a lifelong passion for cooking and creating delicious sweets by Madonna Fantetti-Slepicka, with a belief that ''Chocolate makes life a little sweeter''.

      This charming River Forest shop opened March, 2012 at the intersection of Lake Street and Lathrop Avenue, in the heart of River Forest. Their signature English Toffee and Caramels were the benchmark upon opening and continue to be sought after confections. The River Forest shop has grown and now offers a full compliment of chocolates and confections. Retro candy and ''penny'' candy have since become a favorite at this shop. Also offered are many seasonal items Lezza Italian Ice, Cotton Candy, Caramel Apples, Candy Apples, Fudge and more.

      In 2013, River Forest Chocolates was awarded the Illinois Green Business Association Award(IGBA). RFC is committed to always keeping an eye to sustainable resources in the environment, production and packaging of their products.

      Chocolate is a wonderful way to thank guests, clients and friends. Perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, dinner parties, weddings, corporate gifts or just a little ''Thinking of you!'' delicacy.

      Highlight your next big day with personalized individual favors, a creative party/event tray or an entire sweet table. Always happy to design the ideal and memorable corporate gift that acknowledges and celebrates your business relationships.

      Let River Forest Chocolates make your next special occasion ''a little bit sweeter''
