Marine on St. Croix, Minn--When Robyn Dochterman lost her job as a newspaper journalist, she decided to channel her creativity into starting a new career. And she didn’t have to look very far for some sweet inspiration: she’s a chocolate lover! So, Dochterman got the training to become a chocolatier. Robyn and her partner, Deidre Pope started the St Croix Chocolate Company in 2010 with a simple motivation; that each piece of chocolate be “bliss in a bite”.

Robyn makes and decorates the scrumptious artisan chocolates, (which have won all kinds of awards), and Deidre runs the business in this charming small town on the St. Croix river, north of Stillwater.

St. Croix Chocolate Company produces fine, artisan chocolates and caramels that are made from scratch, often with local honey, maple syrup and herbs. They also hand decorate chocolate seasonal specialties, such as Easter eggs, Christmas centerpieces and edible chocolate boxes and gifts. Their retail shop, in Marine on St. Croix, serves wine, beer and light fare from their wood fired oven.
