Venezuela natives Michael and Richard Antonorsi come from a family of cacao growers, so it was only natural for them to take on the family business. After moving to California, the two brothers launched Chuao Chocolatier in 2002, naming it for their native country's most famous chocolate-producing region. But this isn't your run-of-the-mill treat: Chuao Chocolatier has pioneered "fusion chocolate," merging premium chocolate with unexpected ingredients. Today, Chuao Chocolatier makes everything from bonbons to chocolate seashells.
