We’re Martha Approved!

Having one of your holiday chocolates picked by Martha Stewart is a bit like winning an Oscar — if it’s good enough for Martha, you know it’s good enough for just about everyone else.

When someone mentions a chocolate factory, Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory is one of the first things that probably comes to your mind. I’ll admit our chocolate factory does not make giant edible mushrooms, lick-able wallpaper or an ever-lasting gobstopper.  We have no chocolate lake, nor do we have a Wonkavision that transports chocolate straight into […]
