DELYSIA CHOCOLATIER

DELYSIA makes the most amazing parisian style artisan truffles…each flavor is preservative-free and created with the utmost care and attention to detail…..they offer over 60 flavors, from the classic milk or dark chocolate to the unique curry or honey….i have not yet tried every flavor, but i intend to…seriosly these truffles are delicious little works of art….and i was lucky enough to have DELYSIA as an official sponsor of A LOVELY WORKSHOP in france…which meant that every attendee & collaborator got to enjoy some of these lovely melt in your mouth truffles…it’s with bittersweet

generosity that i’m now giving away my last 3 boxes to 3 lucky chocolate lovers…

we all need a little sweetness in our lives…..

NICOLE owner & creator of DELYSIA is a loving mother & chocolate entrepreneur…

“Delysia Chocolatier was launched in late 2008, but our first truffles were created in December 2006 when I was eight months pregnant with Sebastien.  Exhausted and too tired for holiday shopping, I made truffles as gifts for our family and friends.  (Sebastien was born a few days later, four weeks early.)

My first truffle flavors were hazelnut, peanut butter, and mint.  Much to my surprise, they were delicious!  I found myself making them for every holiday, birthday party, and potluck dinner.  With my loving husband’s encouragement, we slowly created a business.

In April 2009, when I was four month pregnant with Colin, I was laid off from my full time job as an industrial/quality engineer.  I was devastated.  I loved being an engineer.  But life had determined a different path for me.  I needed to focus on what was important – our family and my ‘dream’ to grow my chocolate truffle business.  In May 2009, Delysia Chocolatier became a full time venture.”

DELYSIA also partners with vineyards to create unique truffles with their wines….which could be a wonderful addition to a winery wedding…or you could just hang out in your backyard & eat truffles right out of the box, just saying…i feel its important to mention here, chocolate is good for your soul….so i am inviting you to join my love affair with DELYSIA chocolate truffles…that right, simply leave a comment & i will pick three lucky winners next week….good luck ladies and…..

bon apetite….xoxo

a little more sweetness...

    Chocolate is one of those flavors that comforts me: it's warm, spicy, exotic, familiar, and complex, all rolled into a silky, sweet ball of mouth-watering goodness. And that's my outlook on my upcoming wedding: like a box of (non-Forrest Gump-like) chocolates!
