The first batch of chocolates is gone (wow, they went fast!), but if you missed them, I’m making a special batch for the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles’ fundraising appeal. (More details on the appeal here: http://www.sjquiltmuseum.org/give.html .)
This batch will be fudges, marshmallows, and (if I have time) caramels, and will come out in late May/early June. As usual, they will be gourmet treats, worthy of an artisan chocolatier – using only the best ingredients. (For those who don’t read my blog regularly, you can read about one year’s chocolate-making process here, and see some of last year’s chocolates here. The candies in this special batch will be different, though!)
Here is a partial list of flavors that will be included:
- Lemon lavender white chocolate fudge
- Maple walnut fudge
- Mocha cinnamon fudge
- Coconut tequila lime fudge (a perennial favorite)
- Chocolate walnut fudge
- Chocolate ginger fudge
- Chocolate cherry almond fudge
- “Plain” chocolate fudge
- Raspberry marshmallows
- Cinnamon marshmallows
- Mint marshmallows (perhaps with chocolate!)
In addition, if I have time, I may add the following chocolate-dipped caramel flavors:
- vanilla-jasmine-honey caramels
- chai caramels
- ginger-lime-chile caramels with peanuts
- English toffee
No guarantees on the caramels or toffee, but I’m hoping I can fit them in!
In total there will be 14-15 flavors, packed into a half-pound box. They’ll be sent as a thank-you to the first 50 people (in the continental U.S.) who donate $150 or more to the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles – donation link here. Please enter code “QUILTING” in the Notes/Comments section so we know to send you chocolates!
