FAQs & Ingredient Info

How do you get your chocolates so shiny?

It’s a combination of many factors, including using tempered colored cocoa butter, tempered chocolate, specific working and storage temperatures, perfectly buffed molds, and highly trained chocolate witches! We decorate using synthetic cocoa butter colors and non-toxic and edible luster dusts.

What kind of chocolate do you use?

We almost exclusively use Swiss chocolate from Felchlin.

Do you have an ingredient list?

Our Chocolate Menu has a photo and description of our flavors, but we don't have an exhaustive ingredient list.

What's a ganache? What do your ganaches contain?

Our ganaches are an emulsification of chocolate and cream or coconut oil. They contain Felchlin chocolate and may contain cocoa butter, cream, Irish butter, coconut oil, coconut milk, glucose, sorbitol, invert sugar, and honey. Any of our chocolates that do not contain cream or butter will be labeled Dairy Free or Vegan, as appropriate.

Do your chocolates contain soy?

Yes. Most chocolate contains a small amount of soy lecithin, which is used as an emulsifier.

I received your Drinking Chocolate Mix as a gift. How do I make it?

We recommend adding 4-5 tablespoons per 8 ounces of the steaming hot milk of your choice and mixing well. Add a little less or a little more chocolate mix depending on your preference.
