We are a seasonal business.

Hand dipped Caramel Apples available in September & October only.

Homemade Chocolate Candies: November thru Easter.

Summer shut down: Easter Sunday thru August.

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.

  • Why is this place so awesome?!It is actually a smaller scale chocolate factory where you can watch them make the chocolates and candy through windows in all the walls! The selection is not huge, but it is wide enough to satisfy any craving: nuts, creams, caramels, pecan and caramel, gummies and more. They even have giant Easter eggs filled with pieces of their candy inside...so unique! The 1/2 lb and 1 lb boxes of chocolates are resonably priced. I tried the creams and I must say the flavor is excellent! The chocolate is not overbearingly sweet or too 'chocolatey' that it overshadows the filling. The creams I had were raspberry, orange, and vanilla and they were perfectly balanced in taste. The woman behind the register greeted us immediately and was very friendly and helpful thru our entire visit. This is a place you definitely need to visit - dont miss out! Be aware though, they do close during the warmer months right after Easter, but open in the Fall with caramel apples. I for one cannot wait!
  • I've only had one product (so far) from Minonk Chocolate Company, the Snappers, and they are EXCELLENT! Chocolate, carmel and nuts combined in a delicious way. We received them as a holiday gift. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
