Saturday Market

Well Dan is off to the Market with a Pistachio Brigadeiros, bourbon pecan, crack bars and a few jars of caramel sauce.  Go Dan Go.

Me.... I'll be at Williams-Sonoma with our caramel sauces and a few brew chews.   Now it is summer, we'll be eating more ice cream and what goes great with it..... caramel sauces.  Yum.

If you make your own ice cream, cut up some of our Brigadeiros and add them to the ice cream.  Dee-lish!

Another day over

Thanks to Bruce and Ellen and the staff of Bottle Mixx for supporting GerDan Chocolates, we always enjoy our time at your store.

Our "Olde hickory" beer marshmallows were a hit today so I suspect there will be plenty of Happy Dads tomorrow!

Saturday afternoon

We will not be at Midtown Farmers' Market this weekend coming but we will be at Bottlemixx on Creedmoor from 2:00 - 5:00pm, selling Brew Chews.  The store is having an Olde Hickory tasting with a few of their brews on tap.

We have made Brew Chews with two of their beer - The Imperial Stout and Death by Hops.
Hopefully we will have some Beer Marshmallows too.

Midtown Market

Great day at the Market yesterday.  The rain staid away for the most part, just a little sprinkle and that was all.   Dan made a gluten free bar with macadamia nuts and coconut which proved a winner with our gluten free friends.  Our Bourbon Pecan truffle, using pecans from NC always sells out as did our Almond Brigadeiro, (which doesn't contain any chocolate).   It is really rich, made with almond butter rolled in slivered almonds.

With the weather being so hot and humid, it is a challenge for us to display our chocolates and candy. We use ceramic tiles to display a sample of our  chocolates and it works for the most part with just an occasional casualty.  The rest of our chocolates...... they are kept cool in our cooler.

This humid weather prevents us from making beer brittle which is a shame,  as it is a big hit whenever we do make it.

Some people were buying their "Father's Day" gifts yesterday and bought our Brew Chews.  Don't worry if you missed out, we will be at BottleMixx next Saturday selling our Brew Chews.  Bottlemixx will be having an "Olde Hickory" tasting at the same time, so drop by for a taste and buy Dad some Brew Chews!

If we don't see you then, see you at the Midtown Farmers' Market in two weeks
