In celebration of Mother’s Day, The Secret Chocolatier is also offering chocolate gifts that include:
• Chocolate Gifts and Collections – Range in price $20 - $100
Features various size boxes of assorted chocolates, truffles and other treats, as well as butter toffee, and a chocolate covered graham cracker and more!
• Chocolate Roses - $15
This is not your ordinary rose. It’s chocolate and flowers all in one. Offered for Mother’s Day in white and dark chocolate, each petal is hand formed and brought together to create a fully chocolate, edible rose. Each rose is sold as a single long-stem, 1/2 dozen, or full dozen, and wrapped and packaged as a real rose would be. Cost: $15 a stem.
“Our chocolate classes are a wonderful opportunity to build palates, learn about chocolates, confectionary and the baking art,” said Robin Ciordia, co-owner of The Secret Chocolatier. “With Mother’s Day around the corner, our classes and confections make a perfect gift for the moms in your life.”
