Ten years ago you couldn't purchase Heather and Richard Garza’s homemade chocolates even if you tried. The luscious, hand-dipped confections were gifts bestowed only onto the Garzas’ closest friends and family. Those friends and family members ultimately decided they had to share their good fortune with the rest of the world, and, in 2005, convinced Heather and Richard to open up a shop and make their delectable treats for the public.
Today, the Garzas put the same handcrafted touch into their chocolates as they did when they first began. They blend ganache with dark chocolates and hand form them over decadent truffles before dusting them with cocoa powders and peanut-butter drizzles. They also craft bonbons, peanut-butter balls, and maraschino-cherry creams—all hand dipped in white, dark, or milk chocolate—as well as two-tone chocolate greeting cards that are a great way to say, “I love you” or “Stop eating cardboard.”
