adventures in chocolate


Dawn creates hand-crafted chocolate bars and confections featuring local, natural, and carefully selected ingredients in sometimes surprising combinations. For special times, or anytime you want to add something sweet to your adventures. Especially good when shared with people you love (both near and far).

The Dawn behind DWN….

After spending most of the last decade as lead chocolatier and manager for two of Toronto’s most celebrated and sought-after independent chocolate brands, Dawn Nita relocated to the sunshine city of Orillia and launched DWN Craft Chocolatier.

Dawn draws from years of making jams and preserves, and a food career based on the fundamentals of fine dining and local ingredients. By combining bean-to-bar chocolate-making elements with the whimsical colour and flavour combinations of fine chocolate bonbons, Dawn hopes to entice you with unique hand-crafted chocolate bars and confections.
