Countdown to Christmas!

'Tis the season!

A special time of year to enjoy the company of our families, friends, co-workers and being kind to all.

If we are going to indulge, indulge in good quality, like our chocolates. Everything is OK in small doses!

So enjoy yourselves, have fun and share your chocolate!

Can you feel it in the air?

We sure can, as we trek towards the holiday season.

Can't believe it's November! The elves are busy making all kinds of goodies.

True indulgences and neat gift items are lovingly being created.

Our flavor of the month for November is Fruit of the Cocoa.

The pulp that surrounds the beans inside the cocoa pod is where this fruit originates and offers a transcendent flavor profile of citrus, lychee and guava, as well as sweet tropic floral notes.

Stay tuned for neat things coming, and be good to yourself - eat chocolate!

Quick Update

Well, some have seen snow already, but it's just a little preview to get us prepared for winter.
The kitchen is getting chocolate and supplies in as we prepare ourselves for Halloween, then Christmas.
It's always exciting as we start to see our new ideas transform into reality, and this is the fun in the chocolate world.

Our fabulous pumpkin pie chocolates will be available in October, a must try for sure.
Great things coming, some a bit behind, but worth the wait.

Keep well, and eat chocolate!

Welcome to our New Website!

 Well alas, our new website! Our high end chocolates have been around for a while, yet many haven't heard of us. A pioneer in the early days of such upscale chocolates, and our chocolate creations.were next in line. Since our early days we have been working with metallic colors & colored cocoa butters for that sophisticated touch. As always we are excited to see the many products coming available to try, so we will a ways have  new inspirations.

 We have never advertised a lot of our specialty items in the  past, although some were available in our shop.

 Now, we offer them to you for those special gifts that really have a "wow" effect.

 Theme ideas for chocolates we have lots of as well, so keep an eye out for that something special.

 We have made colored balls/spheres from chocolate, mainly at Christmas. Our customers would provide small gifts or messages to put inside. Hidden treasures! 

 These are available by special request as well.

 Also, we plan to have a short learning video each month to show you how in your own home, you can use household items, or molds if you have, to make your own impressionable gifts. You too can create from chocolate!

Some of my favorite chocolate shops that have and still do inspire me:

Beta5; http://beta5.myshopify.com/collections/signature-chocolates,

Norman Love Chocolates; http://www.normanloveconfections.com,

Compartes; http://compartes.com

Check out their creations and see their innovative work. If ever in Vancouver, Florida or LA. It could be on your list of places to visit.

 Being a chocolatier is rewarding, not only in seeing our happy customers, but in the thrill of creating. We are all artists who use chocolate as the medium. Like all artists, we have our own talents and ideas and really, the sky's the limit.

 I truly appreciate all the chocolatiers that have paved the way from way back in time, to the ones that I am familiar with and have followed and to those still to come. It really is a "love of chocolate".

 Also, our gratitude to all the cocoa farmers and their families - without them there would be no chocolate!

 We hope you enjoy our specialty chocolates with their memorable flavors, as well as our creations as they are launched.

We also hope that along with us, you excitedly look forward to what's coming in the future!

Stay tuned!

Sincerely, Josie
