Chocolat is a novel by Joanne Harris. It tells the story of a young widowed mother who arrives in a fictional oppressed French village and uses her chocolate to bring joy to people's lives. Chocolat is the French spelling, and is properly pronounced (approximately) "SHOW - ko - LAH".

The movie was shot in the village of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain in Burgundy.

In 2000, the book was adapted to film by Robert Nelson Jacobs. It was directed by Lasse Hallström and starred Juliette Binoche, Alfred Molina, Carrie-Anne Moss, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Hugh O'Conor, Lena Olin, Peter Stormare and Leslie Caron.

A completely different movie titled Chocolat and directed by Claire Denis was made in 1988.
