Here’s what a professional chef and Le Marais fan had to say about our truffles: “Wish you could have seen my friends' faces while they were devouring the truffles! Explicit and exquisite!!!”
* A portion of every sale goes to the BLU MOON Foundation Haiti Orphanage Adoption Program (HOAP). Our truffles have helped put in water filtration systems, pay for an orphanage renovation, and cover the costs of food, supplies and school uniforms for orphaned and abandoned children in Haiti. With your help and passion for chocolate, we can do more, so order some truffles today!
Cooking, baking and candy making are second nature to me. So is eating really good chocolate. That’s because I have been doing it since I was a little girl, skipping school to help my mom bake pies for Thanksgiving or cookies for the holidays. I even had a vegetarian catering company when I was a teenager and more recently, spent a year making everything we ate from scratch and blogging about it.
A few years ago, after learning about the use of child slave labor in the cocoa trade, I also became a Fair Trade chocolate devotee and proselytizer.
Two years ago, I began selling truffles at the holidays to help raise money for Haitian orphanages. Many truffles for charity later, some friends of friends convinced me that I should bring my truffles to the wider marketplace. So I listened and Le Marais Chocolat was born!
