OAK CLIFF, TX - Warning, your willpower is about to be tested to the max. And you can blame it all on Oak Cliff’s Cocoandre Chocolatier. Specifically Andrea Pedraza, the owner of this sweet shop that specializes in hand-crafted treats.

Pedraza’s been in the chocolate game for 30 years. And after spending 25 of those years at a local chocolate company, she decided it was time to do her own thing. So five years ago, she and her daughter Cindy opened CocoAndre Chocolatier. The rest is sweet history.

And it’s safe to say Pedraza knows the ropes, especially how to please her customers. One way is through her signature European truffles.

"We have a nice assortment of dark and milk (chocolate),” Perdraaz said.

And you can’t forget the salted caramel.

Now, if your taste is a bit more fancy, chew on this, Cocoandre is the only chocolatier in the Metroplex that sells a Christian Louboutin inspired chocolate high heel.

"We're always coming up with new ideas,” Pedraza said.

And from chocolate Birkin bags to bark to bunnies, you can say CocoAndre’s treats are pretty egg-cellent.

Now if you can’t stop by for Easter, CocoAndre is already gearing up for Mother’s Day. But let’s face it, chocolate is for the soul 365 days a year.
