Five Local Candy Shops For Easter Candy - Louisville, KY

It’s always nice to support local businesses, most especially the ones that make sweet treats by hand with love. Several of the candy shops in the Louisville area have been around for decades, while others are fairly new but already well-established. But they all share one thing in common- these are businesses run by local families, and their businesses serve the community’s collective sweet tooth in a very special way. Here are five local candy shops with all the sweet treats you need for your Easter Baskets:

Bourbon truffles are what put this shop on the map, but now you can get all kinds of different chocolate goodies from chocolate mustaches to chocolate horseshoes. The great thing about this shop is it is a nut-free shop, so if you are having trouble finding chocolate candy that is safe for people with allergies this is the place to go. Open daily.

Now with three locations including Oxmoor Center, this local shop specializes in colorful jockey silks, jockey caps, and horseshoes, all made from chocolate- basically anything and everything that is colorful and reminds you of Derby time. Peanut butter cups and sea salt caramels are always local favorites. Hours vary by location, and the two downtown locations are closed Sundays.

Schimpff’s Confectionary
