Valentine's Day is upon us! This year I celebrate by sharing stories from some of my favorite artisan chocolate makers. These three businesses are incredibly dedicated to producing a very high quality product, which inspires me to keep the quality bar high in all aspects of my life. I feel good knowing my dollar directly supports businesses that I can fully stand behind. These individuals are the kind of people who design their own outstanding packaging, build their own shop, wake up at 5:00 am to make chocolate, use heirloom plants, and work with biodynamic and sustainable farms. It's amazing how rich and unique all of these chocolates taste and how far they will go to keep it that way. These chocolates are all wonderful and made with such immense amount of love. I encourage all of my readers to support these dedicated and wonderful artisans this year when selecting their chocolate for v-day. Set the bar high in your love life, your chocolate life and beyond.
