Welcome to Kilwins on Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale and the Las Olas. We have been serving the best Original Recipe Ice Cream and confections since opening our doors way back in 1995! Over the last 27 years, Kilwins has come to be known to both tourists and locals alike as the premiere location to enjoy delicious hand-crafted chocolates and hand-paddled Mackinac Island Fudge, as well as the best Kilwins Original Recipe Ice Cream, making Kilwins a “can’t miss” on your next visit to Fort Lauderdale!
Our Hand-Crafted, Freshly Made Confections
Even before you step inside to be greeted by our friendly staff, the wafting aroma of fresh, hand-rolled Waffle Cones will pull you back to a time when customer service meant going the extra mile to make each customer feel special. With an assortment of over a hundred different confections, both old fashioned and newly invented, to choose from, Kilwins is a unique blend of old school charm and customer service with modern sensibilities. We hand-craft all of our Chocolates and treats, and any time of day, you can drop by and watch one of our chocolatiers or master fudge makers whip up a wide selection of different confections. From classics such as pretzels and Marsh-Mallows to the exotic, like dipped Twinkies, our chocolatiers work to coat everything you could possibly imagine in our rich Milk, Dark and White Chocolate. If you are lucky, you may even be able to see us hand-dip our "Perfect" Apples in our copper kettle Caramel, the recipe for which has remained unchanged over the last half century. Once the sun goes down, the real show begins, as our Fudge and Brittle masters take over in the kitchen. Viewing space in the front window is at a premium as people crowd around to watch as our hand-crafted Mackinac Island Fudge is poured onto a marble slab and paddled by hand. While the rich scent of chocolate washes over the crowd, they marvel as our Peanut Brittle and Caramel Corn are laid out on marble slabs before being hand packaged. A lucky few might even manage to get a sample right off the table! All this happens in what is a typical day at Fort Lauderdale’s best sweets stop.
