Established in 2018, Sweet Santa Fe, LLC carries on the respected 40-year history of local chocolatier, CG “Chuck” Higgins and his enchanting cacao legacy in New Mexico. Dedicated to the time-honored art of making traditional, handcrafted, hand-rolled, and hand-dipped chocolates and other confections, Sweet Santa Fe is located in the Fashion Outlets of Santa Fe where an expanded confectionery also includes a full-service café. In 2019, just after 3 months opening as a retail location Sweet Santa Fe placed 3rd in the Best of Santa Fe in the Artisan Chocolate category. Then later that fall they submitted for the acclaimed Scovie Awards and placed 10 out of 12 entries! Sweet Santa Fe is a location you can come to and each time see something new being made or you definitely can treat yourself to something new.
New Mexico and chocolate have gone together for more than 1,000 years. History reflects that early residents of what is now New Mexico acquired cocoa beans as a commodity for celebrations and ceremonies. Santa Fe it’s self has a rich 400yr history of chocolate treats, recipes, and appreciation. There is a “secret” but well known Chocolate Trail associated with the Chocolate Trade that Santa Fe is so well known for and one of the reasons so many chocolate lovers are rewarded for their efforts in searching out all the best places for unique chocolate treats.
Sweet Santa Fe is a reflection of the region’s rich history of chocolate and the only candy maker in town that still hand-rolls and hand-dips chocolate truffles. There are 13 steps to making traditional Chocolate Truffles. You can very often find them at work on any one of the many many different truffle flavors.
Owners Cindy Smiles and Diana Kelley were taught the art of chocolate making by the esteemed CG “Chuck” Higgins, whose eponymous chocolate store, CG Higgins Confections, had legions of fans who flocked here from all over the world to taste his creations. Many of the Recipes are still followed that he spent decades perfecting. You might be incredibly lucky to find him still making his famous Nut Rolls and smiling and chatting away as he does it for Sweet Santa Fe for all to watch.
