New Chocolates!!!

Now that the major chocolate holidays have come and gone, it’s time to get down to some creative work in the kitchen!  Late spring and summer is the time of the year that we focus on developing new flavor profiles and product types.  Frankly, it’s my favorite part of being a chocolatier.  Our professional taste testers are plenty content when this season rolls around as well!

Here you’ll get a sneak peak at one of our new lines as it develops.  We are currently working on developing some artisan chocolate bars that we can hand make in a way that will allow us to make them available for resale in a variety of retail settings.  This is something we’ve been asked about for a long, long time.  We have not done any wholesale business up until this point mainly out of concern for freshness and the short shelf life of our soft center chocolates.

So………………we decided to work on a line of artisan chocolate bars that will be much more shelf stable AND be hand made, beautiful and wildly delicious.  Only time will tell, but we think we’re on to something.

We start with the same delectable chocolate you have come to expect from Stella Leona.

Then we added fruits and nuts and a couple of other not-yet-to-be-shared ingredients.

All that added together equals some combinations you will want to be sure to taste for yourself.
