Sweet Tidings

It was just brought to my attention that there has been no blogs posted here since last year! Somehow a glitch between my iphone & the website has kept me from telling you all about my chocolate events in the last year, and I’m sorry.  Yes, I’m still busily making delicious handmade truffles & there’s still a couple of days to get your holiday orders in for pick up next week.

Upcoming Events

Tis the Season!!! Personally, I try to bypass the mall and commercial store since everybody already has SO MUCH stuff…so usually my go to gift is consumables.  Good quality handmade food products, candles, soaps and things that everybody uses that contribute to keeping a local artist going 🙂

I will be selling chocolates at a couple fun small art events this year.  So stop by & check out what we’ve been making.

As the grey begins, why not treat yourself or someone else to something special.  Our delicious handmade chocolate truffles use only the finest chocolate and as many local organic ingredients as possible.  Plus, they’re made with love!
