Our next market day is Saturday September 6.  The weather is cooling down a bit and so we will be able to make our Crack Bars again. I'll post early next week with the flavors we will have at the Market next Saturday.  Until then………. Keep on Trufflin'

Brew Chews

Chocolates and Brew Chews…… we had them both and these tasty bites were made with Wicked Weed beers

For those who like things a little hotter, we made a brew chew with Freak of Nature and added JalapeƱos.  Nothing like a hoppy hot confection.


Great day

Great day yesterday at BottleMixx for the Wicked Weed tap takeover.  A few of our chocolates had the same ingredients as two of their beers and so were a big hit among both chocolate and beer lovers.

 This chocolate had dates and fresh blackberries and wine added to the ganache.



While our other truffle had tamarind and orange ganache.  


Both chocolates went remarkably well with the beers…….  a very enjoyable pairing.


Our next venue will be at Midtown Farmers Market on Sept 6.

Ready, set, go……….

We're ready for the Farmer's market tomorrow.  We have brought back an old favorite that we haven't had for some time - Fleur de Sel caramels dipped in both dark and milk chocolate.

Our Seasonal Brew Chew tomorrow is Watermelon Wheat and we added fresh watermelon juice ourselves to enhance the flavor.

We will of course have our crowd favorites - Bourbon Pecan Chocolate and Pistachio Brigadeiro.  Come see us at Midtown Farmers Market in the morning.  Weather is meant to be nice.
