A Ridley Park couple started out in the ice cream business, but over time they’ve also morphed into chocolatiers, writes Peg DeGrassa for Delco News Network.
Tim and Karen Monahan opened Chill Out Chocolate Therapy at 19 E. Hinckley Ave., in the heart of the Ridley Park business district, in April.
In addition to homemade chocolate everything, from truffles and sea salt caramels to bark and fudge, Chill Out Chocolate Therapy features homemade cakes and hand-decorated cookies, dessert breads and anything necessary to satisfy a sweet tooth. Most of the sweets are made on-site.
The shop has the usual and the unusual chocolate dipped and chocolate covered treats. It also offers specialized and vintage candy, and sweets for each season and holiday.
They’ve also kept ice cream on the menu, with hand-dipped ice cream and homemade water ice.
The couple was busy running their other business, Chill Out Ice Cream and Water Ice when an opportunity came to open a candy store.
“The timing seemed right,” Karen shared. “We already were in the sweet business at Chill Out Ice Cream and Water Ice so it wasn’t too difficult to learn the candy business.”
