This business is about really good chocolate and having a little fun.

Christina has been working for big companies for nearly her whole adult life. She's been in the chocolate business for about 10 years now, and she has ideas. Lots of ideas. After some serious soul-searching, she left her desk job in marketing and struck out on her own. Fortunately, she knows lots of chocolate and confection experts from her time in the industry. She approached her neighbor and friend, Anina, for help and advice. Anina agreed to develop prototypes. Recipe development took months of work (but we finally got there)!

We wanted something a little bit different, but not wacky. We wanted to use really good chocolate, but we didn't want to settle for whatever already exists. We set out to develop a signature chocolate recipe. Anina brought in her baking skills and continues to develop recipes for interesting and new centers to test and trial. Everything we make is something you may already eat with chocolate, just in a new context or form.

Christina also approached her friends, Bob and Gary, for advice on chocolate manufacturing and handling. Bob and Gary have collectively over 50 years of experience at Mars in the R&D department (they're retired now). You could say they know something about chocolate. They've been incredibly supportive but have not shied away from being critical when needed.

With all this experience in producing chocolate, Christina and Anina are all set to go to market. We're starting out here on Etsy. Hope you enjoy!

Hello! Welcome to HB+M Chocolate Truffles. We hand make, hand paint the very finest quality chocolate truffles... all with something special at its heart. We do have one peanut butter item, and our truffles are made in a facility which also processes nuts. The deliciousness contained within these chocolates is made with traditional ingredients. That means, there's dairy, wheat, and eggs (and sometimes peanuts). If you are allergic or sensitive, please note.

Shipping
Shipping is included in the cost of the product. I ship chocolate in a thermally insulated bag with gel packs. I generally choose a ship date that will minimize time in transit (i.e., I won't ship over the weekend) or I will wait for a cooler day (if that option exists). However, I have successfully shipped to Phoenix, AZ and Southern Italy! Most items are USA only, but I do have an International Listing. If you are outside the USA, please use that listing to customize your order. THANKS!
