There’s no fudging the truth here: Downtown Plano is becoming the sweet spot for local chocolatiers to satisfy their craving.
Dude, Sweet Chocolate has opened its doors at 1016 E. 15th St. Just follow the red brick road to where La Belle Boutique used to be. You’ll find delectable truffles, toffees, nuts, bark, bars and marshmallow treats. The chocolate shop also offers a variety of gifts and merchandise for sale, just in time for the holidays.
A grand-opening celebration took place Saturday, November 21. Guests enjoyed chocolate drink samples, specials and a preview of the shop’s holiday gifts and holiday menu.
Chef Katherine Clapner is the visionary behind Dude, Sweet Chocolate, as well as the chef with more than 20 years’ experience. Prior to founding Dude, Sweet Chocolate, she served for many years as Executive Pastry Chef at Stephan Pyles restaurant.
The Plano location is Clapner’s fourth shop for Dude, Sweet Chocolate. The original is in the Bishop Arts district; another is off Greenville Avenue near Knox/Henderson; and the other is in Fort Worth.
Welcome to Plano, Dude!
