San Francisco’s Ferry Building is filled with delectable bites. There are gorgeous gelatin desserts that look like museum quality paperweights from Sweets Collection at La Cocina and delicious ice cream from Humphry Slocombe. When we need to get our chocolate fix in the city by the bay, there’s just one place to go and that’s Recchiuti Confections.


Hot Chocolate - Recchiuti Confections in San Francisco, California's Ferry Building
Hot Chocolate – Recchiuti Confections in San Francisco, California’s Ferry Building


Recchiuti Confections has been making chocolate by hand since 1997. This local Bay Area chocolatier was founded by Michael Recchiuti and his wife Jacky Recchiuti. One of the reasons that we love their chocolates so much is because Recchiuti Confections often swings by California farmers’ markets to snag local herbs like lavender and lemon verbena for its infusions. Recchiuti Confections sources its chocolate from French based Valrhona Chocolate and Burlingame, California based Guittard Chocolate.

Recchiuti Confections signature flavor is a burnt caramel, but we went bananas for their limited edition passion fruit habanero flavor.

It’s tough to walk out the door without a package of Recchiuti Confections’ decadent s’mores bites. Recchiuti Confections takes its fluffy vanilla bean marshmallows, places them on homemade graham crackers and then drenches the whole darn thing in pure bittersweet chocolate.


In addition to Recchiuti Confections, here’s a list of other neat little local spots we love across the Bay Area and Silicon Valley.


If you don’t plan to be in Silicon Valley anytime soon, Recchiuti Confections will ship these yummy bites right to your front door. Just beware, according to Recchiuti Confections’ site, “These bites ‘pop their tops’ in high altitudes and are shipped via air. So if you are sending them as a gift, please keep in mind they will arrive slightly cracked on top.”
