Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, 87107
Joliesse is French for "grace" and that's what chocolatier Grace Lapsys meant when she named her business, the idea of beauty, loveliness and perfection. They can all be found in chocolate. Grace Lapsys is a master chocolatier, having studied at Ecole Chocolat in British Colombia and L'ecole du Grand Valrhona in France. Along with chocolates, the shop has a coffee lounge, and kids of any age can make chocolate. Thursday nights there are chocolate making workshops and kids can register for an hour of chocolate painting. Joliesse provides the traditional truffles and toffees in boxes to go, as well as chocolate wedding favors, wedding centerpieces, and corporate gifts.
