Over 100 years ago, a Greek family settled in Minonk, Illinois, bringing with them a rich tradition of candy making. As time passed, they became well known for making the area's best chocolate homemade candy - and their reputation grew miles beyond this small Woodford County community.

Today, with those time-tested recipes from 1915, Minonk Chocolate Company owners, Christie Ruestman and Cindy Meyer, continue making candy the traditional way.

Our business has grown from 2 to 12 dedicated employees over the past 20 + years and we are very thankful for each and every one.

We are grateful that many of you have chosen our family business to be the providers of your chocolate candies/caramel apples. A box of Minonk Chocolate Company's fresh, delicious chocolates is a gift much-appreciated by relatives, friends, teachers and business associates. Please be assured that small orders are handled with as much respect and care as our large orders and promptly completed to your satisfaction.

We promise to provide our customers with the highest quality home made chocolate candy and caramel apples.

We want to say THANK YOU to our loyal customers and WELCOME to any new ones!

  • Small town store produces the best taffy apples around. Seasonal item that should not be missed. Other delicious selections as well.  more »
  • Amazing chocolates. We stumbled on this wonderful place in September. It would be a nice day trip from Chicago or Peoria to visit Starved Rock State Park and pick up some chocolate while you're in the area. We live in Florida and are ordering online for Christmas gifts. Jim Miller
  • Incredible caramel apples in September and October. I wait all year for them! They have an amazing assortment of other candy. I especially like their chocolate covered toffee. Very high quality candy from a small central Illinois town.
