About Us
Michael Hohenthal, The Go To Chocolate guy

Michael Hohenthal tip toed into being a chocolatier when he came to aid a friend who needed a helping hand to sustain her chocolate business. In time, things were again going well for her.

And in 2005 he founded Go To Chocolate as his way of channeling his amazing creativity and his endless quest for perfection. He says he makes his chocolates with his hands, pours in his heart and offers them with love as his gift to you. The purpose of his life's work is to delight you, to surprise you, to bring the meaning of his life in touch with yours. Michael's artistry will impress you with just how good chocolate can be, with just how good life can be.
