Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

Cream and Butter Ganache

Just a note to everyone. We make our cream ganaches fresh. They have a shelf life of about 3-4 weeks. So, when you order them, eat them within that time. Cream ganaches include the lavender ganache and the tea set.

Butter ganache lasts about double. Call it 6 to 8 weeks. The Orange Sin is a butter ganache.

The caramels and cordials will last around 3 months, though a cordial may last longer and the nut butters about 6 months. The nut bark will last six month to a year. Dried fruit bark and plain chocolate will last about a year, maybe more. But in all cases, it depends on the storage conditions. Good conditions, 70 degrees and a relative humidity of 55 to 60 percent.
