Matisse Chocolatier Arrives in Rockland


New kid on the block Matisse Chocolatier has arrived to give Rockland anything and everything chocolate.

New kid on the block Matisse Chocolatier has arrived to give Rockland anything and everything chocolate. Owner Lucille Skroce has been in the chocolate business for 17 years, running the first location of Matisse in Englewood, New Jersey since 1996. She opened the new Orangeburg location at the end of December and says she hopes to continue growing in the community.

Skroce says she wants to make sure that Matisse Chocolatier goes beyond the standard candy shop experience. Matisse offers a chocolate-filled birthday party for kids and teens. The birthday boy or girl and their guests can gain access to the inner workings of the chocolate world, learn the history of chocolate, and make their own sweet creations. Skroce’s parties are not only for children; she also hosts bridal showers and baby showers.



Matisse also runs the Matisse Chocolate Academy for adults, where anyone can learn the basics of chocolate making and walk away with handmade treats.

Matisse’s most popular item is the chocolate-covered pretzels, Skroce says, but she makes a variety of goods ranging from chocolate-dipped fresh fruit like strawberries and apples to specialty orders. Skroce says she essentially can “make anything in chocolate,” thanks to the thousand-plus molds at her disposal. Whether one needs a pair of chocolate lips for a valentine or a briefcase and tie for an extra-sweet Father’s Day, Skroce says she has all the right tools. She encourages individuals to order anything they can imagine, and is also accommodating to larger orders for weddings or corporate gift packages.

Matisse Chocolatier is located at 32 Orangetown Shopping Center, Orangeburg. For more information or to place orders, call 845-365-0285 or visit getfreshchocolate.com.
