An official ribbon cutting ceremony will be held today at the store. Children are welcome to come down to the store and meet the giant Jelly Belly, who will be handing our jelly beans. Families will be able to explore the store and try out the chocolate confections from noon to 4 p.m. The store will also host a chocolate-decorating class where kids can craft their own treats to take home every half hour.
It’s the immediate customer delight that owner Rhonda Daniels, who runs the business with her husband, Chris, said she enjoys the most.
“It makes people happy. It’s the kind of simple pleasure that gives instant gratification, and it’s the kind of business where people are really coming in to indulge,” she said. “I just wanted it to be a place that brought a little joy to people’s lives.”Chocolate Works is located at 6401 Jericho Tpke., Commack.
