Champagne Wishes and Chocolate Dreams

I have a friend who has a secret. A secret that, until recently, only surfaced during the holidays if you were lucky enough to spend time with her and her husband. An engineer and an educator by day, Susan and Rob ran a factory of deliciousness at night. They shared this delectable secret with their friends and family who for years told them that they should share their magic with the world.

With two words, I am sharing their secret with you: Champagne. Chocolate.

Rob and Susan are two amazing people. They host fabulous dinners, are great wine tasting buddies, and make some of the best chocolates you will ever taste! I have never been a fan of mass produced chocolates, finding that the most satisfying chocolates are the ones that have had special attention paid to them. I had the opportunity to try a variety of chocolates that Susan and Rob made (they make their own marshmallows and caramel too!), which led me to plead along with the rest of their friends.... "You must share these with the world!"

I wish I had a "scratch, sniff, and taste" camera to truly capture the delicious beauty of their Champagne Dream truffle! Dusted with gold dust, this truffle is hand-made using Callebaut Bittersweet Belgian Chocolate, heavy cream, and champagne cognac. The creamy ganache is hand dipped into true tempered chocolate.

Uncovering Food is all about finding the most delicious and satisfying foods. The measure of a good chocolate is that I only need one piece to satisfy me, and the Champagne Wishes & Chocolate Dreams Champagne Dream Dark Chocolate Truffle is PERFECTION. I am so happy that Rob and Susan decided to sell these delicious treats because now I can not only enjoy them myself, I can share them with all of you!

I always love hearing about people who followed their culinary dreams. A big pat on the back to your friends for persevering to bring their wonderful truffles to the marketplace.


I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
