Willy Wonka would be proud. 

Koppers Specialty Chocolate is reportedly the latest addition to Sunset Park's growing artisanal food scene after making little chocolate balls in Greenwich Village for decades. 

With Koppers' move to Liberty View Plaza, as Crain's reports, those keeping count can safely say that south Brooklyn is turning into a chocolate capital.

Red Hook and Sunset Park will soon have six chocolate factories between the two neighborhoods, including Koppers. 

From tours to classes to Instagram photos, check out what these factories are churning out:

Li-Lac Chocolates

Li-Lac has been creating its signature truffle squares, mint cream patties and gourmet sweets since 1923 when it first opened in Greenwich Village. Last year, the company relocated its factory to Industry City in Sunset Park and currently offers a private factory tour for adults.

Raaka Chocolate

Raaka officially opened its brand new 3,600 square-foot chocolate factory in Red Hook last year. Raaka opens its doors for $10 tours and $50 weekend classes.

Liddabit Sweets

The Brooklyn chocolate and candy company moved to its 2,200-square-foot commercial kitchen in Industry City last year and offers a $15 kitchen tour.  

Jacques Torres

Jacques Torres reportedly moved his entire chocolate manufacturing set-up to Sunset Park's Brooklyn Army Terminal in 2013. Torres currently does not offer factory tours.

Cacao Prieto

Cacao Prieto's red-brick Conover Street space is more than just a chocolate factory. The Red Hook facility doubles as a distillery for its artisanal spirits and liqueurs, including its signature bourbon Widow Jane. Cacao Prieto offers weekend walk-in tours.
