Tempering Chocolate

I love to post the fun creations that I can make with tempered chocolate, and I am excited to announce that Sept. 1st the Rev1 tempering unit will be going on sale.

They retail for $400-$700 (google it and see!!) and we will be selling them for only $154 AND that includes 2.5 pounds of chocolate and an assortment of design transfer sheets. This is an incredible bargain!!

Check out the video below, and see what tempering is all about...and how easy it is to make incredible gifts and treats.

What is a Dove Chocolate Tasting Party?

When people here I do Dove Chocolate Tasting Parties, their eyes get big and their mouths starts to gape open...and then they ask, "What exactly is a tasting party?"

Well, my friend Emmy recently had a tasting party, and shared some pics on her blog. We started with a little history of Chocolate, and some taste comparisons (sort of like wine tasting, but with chocolate), and then quickly moved into sharing AND SAMPLING great entertaining ideas and recipes.

As you can imagine, it's fun....for me and for the guests, and especially for the hostess who gets lots of free dessert items.

Thanks to Emmy for hosting this party, and for sharing it with all of her readers (and mine!)

Chocolate Convention

Well, Im back from the Dove National Conference...whew!! What a busy time, full of fun and chocolate.

Ive got lots to show and tell, including some really great giveaways lined up!

Before I get to that, have you ever heard of a Taxi driver in Philly NOT knowing where the Liberty Bell is located? Even when the Liberty Bell was just down the street about 4 miles and 1 block over?

I mean, if you are going to drive people are for a living, shouldnt you know your town? And if said town is "historical" filled with tourists, shouldnt you know the famous monuments??


Check back as I reveal all the goodies and giveaways!!
