Chocolate and Waffles!

Chocolate Salvation!

With luscious truffles, and this year luscious chocolate bars, too, Cheryl Ames of Sweet Salvation Truffles offers melt-in-your-mouth chocolate treats. Made from milk chocolate and dark chocolate, and flavored with coconut or mint, orange tangerine or raspberry, rum or hazelnut praline or Aztec Kick, there is a chocolate truffle to match your tastes. And this year, Cheryl brings her milk chocolate and dark chocolate bars as well. All gluten-free. Spurred to create her own chocolate treat when her grandmother chose not to share a coveted Christmas box of chocolate-covered cherries, a young Cheryl became a confectionary prodigy. As Cheryl grew up, so did her techniques. Her passion progressed over the years through reading, participating in local confectionary courses, and experimenting with ingredients and recipes. Stop by Cheryl’s table and see what flavor she can match you up with!

Belgian Waffles at the Market!
At Waffatopia, caramelized Belgian waffles are made from scratch in their artisan kitchen by owners Brian and Andrea Polizzi, who first experienced this centuries-old street treat in Brussels. Using King Arthur flours and Cabot real dairy products, Waffatopia creates a natural, yeast-fermented dough (not poured batter), which gives a hearty bread texture. Belgian pearl sugar is imported from Europe and gives a distinctive, mildly sweet, caramelized flavor that requires no additional syrups or toppings. Flavors: classic cinnamon and vanilla, chocolate stuffed waffle, maple bacon (a customer favorite!), and seasonal summer waffle lemon blueberry…real blueberries with a tart lemon kicker!
