The Twelve Days of Muskoka - Christmas & Holiday Local Gift Guide :: Day 11


We really dig living in Muskoka. The area is home to many beautiful iconic features and creatures that have come to help symbolize Ontario and Canada as we know it. But one of features that we like the most is how inspiring it is to live amongst the many artisans and crafters - that have made this land of rock and water their home - as well the smaller businesses that have come to be part of the personality and character of the Muskoka we have come to know and love. Thus Twelve Days of Muskoka, inspired by Suburban Tourist's Twelve Days of Holiday Gift Giving, is meant to celebrate these people and their businesses as well as introduce you to some new gift giving ideas and remind you of some old favourites.

The Nutty Chocolatier :: Huntsville

Most of us have come to expect chocolate at Christmas. Such treats have become a tradition for many. Stockings filled with milk chocolate, hard candy, and nuts are a delicious treat that most take delight in. A trip to the old fashioned chocolate, candy, and ice-cream store however is the stuff Yuletide dreams are made of! The Nutty Chocolatier in downtown Huntsville is one of the magical places we like to take visiting friends to during the summer... but at Christmas... it just becomes that much more special. Like stepping back in time, this shop of tasty treats has many hard-to-find childhood favourites and all the old classics. (Makobe really digs on the "chocolate frogs" whereas Fiona tends to favour the truffles and the "pecan puddles".)

Their hot chocolate, on a cold wintery day is truly the perfect treat while you sit window-side in some old fashioned ice cream parlour chairs. Unique and imported items (like real English toffee) line the shelves. And specialty shaped chocolates in the form of tools, animals, shoes, and all sorts of other unique designs are a great edible gift and conversation starter - for any chocolate lover. You will be able to fill everyone's stockings while fulfilling their unique tastes too. There is even a selection of no sugar added products. Regardless of the time of year, this is definitely one of our family's favourite shops to frequent in Muskoka. We really dig it there!
