Holiday Hot Fudge Sundae

Hand-made red and green Peppermint Candy bits glisten thru white Peppermint Stick Ice Cream, blanketed in Hot Fudge, with piles of Whipped Cream, and a glittering dash of crushed Peppermint Candy. Our classic seasonal sundae is a favorite of wooden soldiers and ballerinas alike – also available with Vegan Peppermint Stick Ice Cream!


Yule Love all of Our December Flavors!

Eggnog Custard, Peppermint Stick, Vegan Peppermint Stick, Spicy Hot Chocolate, Some’Mores, and Gingerbread Ice Creams! Our Eggnog is better than ever: a home cooked custard churned with egg yolks ablaze, mulled with fresh orange peel and warmed by nutmeg and a splash of brandy.
“You’ve been Very Good Little Boys and Girls this Year” says Franklin, “So I’m Packing an Added Flavor: Gingerbread Ice Cream is made with our real Ginger Ice Cream studded with Spicy Molasses Gingerbread Bites.”

Piping Hot Cocoa Float

Take a break from that brisk Winter weather, and warm up with a decadent Hot Chocolate Float or Affagato (ice cream in your coffee).



Never Go Empty Handed Again

We have the perfect host(ess) gifts for you to bring to everything from Chanukah to the Solstice, Festivus to Christmas. Keep that bottle of wine company with our 4-piece box of holiday gift bon-bons, show how much you appreciate that Tofurkey with a selection of our vegan house-made craft chocolate, or win over those in-laws with a large custom box.


Visions of Truffles

Don’t just dream of sugar plums, stop into Shane’s this winter and pick up one, or twelve, of our hand rolled truffles! We offer Sugar Plum, Mexican Hot Chocolate, Espresso, Dark Chocolate, and Milk Chocolate Hazelnut.
And in the true spirit of the season enjoy our Gift of the Magi set: Frankincense and Myrrh Truffles complemented by a Dark Chocolate Honey Caramel topped in shimmering Gold.


Snickerdoodle Double Dips

Our Snickerdoodle Double Dips strike the perfect balance of sweet and spicy with their subtle Cinnamon Cream center dipped in White Chocolate then in Milk Chocolate. It’s just like your favorite cookie, but better!



Chocolate Cafe Makeover

The Café has never looked more beautiful. Antique marble countertops from Webers Candies (Bridgeton, NJ, est. 1888), wooden cabinetry from the 1880’s Jacob Hartmann Confectionery (originally on East Girard Ave.), and copper wall treatments are just a few of the recent improvements. Stop in this holiday season and sip some bean-to-bar chocolate in a fresh setting!


Shane Chocolate Works Bean-to-Bars

This season, we are proud to bring you three different origins of house-made bean-to-bar 70% chocolate tasting squares: Ecuador, Bolivia, and Guatemala. Look for their new packaging in the shop or at the Christmas Village at Dilworth Park.
Also available to order online!



Spoonful Magazine: Confection Affection

This month Spoonful Magazine featured an article on Shane Confectionery & our Shane Chocolate Café.


American car culture dates back to the early 1890’s, when the first vehicles were introduced in the United States. Henry Ford’s Model T rolled off the assembly line in 1908, and with it automobile imagery, especially in postcards, took off. Postmarked Dec. 24, 1908, just 6 months after the Model T was introduced to the American consumer, this postcard depicts Santa driving his down a snowy street.
