Announcement   Attention local shoppers! Please use coupon code "local" for no shipping charge if you'd like to meet at a pick-up location in Yardley, to be determined via convo.

Our ganaches are made with fresh cream and butter, and as such, have about a four-week shelf-life at room temperature. Refrigerating will extend the shelf-life to about two months, and freezing will keep them indefinitely. When freezing/defrosting, please follow these simple tips:

1. Refrigerate for 24 hours
2. Freeze indefinitely
3. Defrost in the refrigerator for 24 hours
4. Keep at room temperature for 24 hours
5. Enjoy at room temperature!

All truffles and bon-bons are made to be enjoyed at room temperature for the optimum flavor release.

**Note: We reimburse shipping overages, as Etsy does not allow shipping calculations based on multiple items in one package.

About

Pavonia Confections: An Unexpected Journey

Pavonia Confections is the culmination of many things besides great passion for chocolate and art. It also has much to do with timing, varying careers choices, and going back to school (again and again).

I majored in English at Rutgers University and began work at Columbia Records following graduation - my dream. As it turned out, the atmosphere wasn't for me. But being impressed by the goodies I brought in occasionally for birthdays and such, my coworkers convinced me to try culinary school.

After a year in culinary school, I moved to Philadelphia and came upon a job at Classic Cake with executive pastry chef Robert Bennett. Chef Bennett is the former pastry chef of Mobil Travel Guide four-star rated Le Bec Fin, and current Cacao Barry chocolate ambassador. I apprenticed with Chef Bennett and learned his chocolate artistry.

The journey has ended (thus far) with Pavonia Confections. I hope to share the experience of artisanal gourmet chocolates with you.

I use Cacao Barry couverture chocolate exclusively, and local ingredients whenever possible. I love the flavor of vanilla beans from the Madagascan region/Réunion Island.
