Her decadent selection of truffles include fleur de sel, hazelnut praline, milk chocolate lemon…and pumpkin for the season! She also has chocolate bars: dark chocolate and milk chocolate with cocoa nibs, and yumberry bars! And a recent addition: Lady Rose hearts, filled with Lady Rose tea…and toffee!
