Los Angeles Magazine Hidden LA Gourmet Chocolate Bars
Compartés Snazzy Chocolate Bars
The vessel isn’t heart shaped, but the newest creations from L.A. chocolatier Compartés are still a worthy token of your affection. Wunderkind owner Jonathan Grahm has revamped the 63-year-old brand, focusing on premium bars containing bits of waffle cone, organic almonds, or crisped rice, all handmade at the Brentwood factory. The boxes—are keepers, with patterns inspired by vintage fabrics, indigenous South American art, and plain ol’ whimsy.
