Well, at this point, after three years of running a high-end chocolate business in Austin, Halstead is creating her own legacy, but when you’re the daughter of a legendary Dallas chocolatier, you’ll always be tied to your mentor.

Halstead’s Chocolaterie Tessa opened on Burnet Road in 2014, and this month, she opened a second location at the Domain Northside, 3211 Palm Way, where you’ll find her small-batch chocolates and treats.

The new store is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

In coming weeks, you’ll find several events at the new Chocolaterie Tessa location, including a wine and chocolate pairing at 6 p.m. on Nov. 9 and a bean-to-bar-to-bon bon class at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 30 with Srsly Chocolate. At 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 6, you can meet Lawren Askinosie, who recently co-wrote a book with her father, the founder of Askinosie Chocolates.

At 6:30 p.m. Dec. 7, Halstead is hosting a chocolate and cheese class with Antonelli’s Cheese Shop followed by a 10 a.m. chocolate and coffee class on Dec. 9 with Caffe Medici.
