Custom chocolate order, your choice!

Item Name and Description:

I’m a geeky artisan chocolatier, licensed in Massachusetts. I’ll make you one batch of whatever your heart desires. My specialties are wildly varied flavors and geeky molds, and I use top-quality chocolate. Like truffles? How about peppermint, or earl grey, or ginger pear brandy? Bars? I can do classic flavors (puffed rice? mint chocolate cookie?) or the highly unusual (curry coconut lime? pumpkin pie spice and candied ginger? decaf chocolate espresso beans?). I also do some custom marzipans (plain, liqueured, mixed nut) and chocolate-covered caramels. For a general sense, you can browse my website at darkmatterchocolatelaboratory.com — I don’t do a good job at keeping it up to date, and the selection there is a fraction of what I offer, but it’ll get you started on ideas.

One batch is not small. For bars or molded chocolates, you’re looking at five+ pounds of chocolate, and the molded chocolates are shelf-stable and keep their flavor for at least a year when stored at a cool room temperature in a ziploc bag or similar. For truffles, you’re looking at about 150 in a batch; marzipans and caramels are 90-100. One batch is one flavor, or one set of easily compatible flavors (e.g., plain milk, milk with cookies, mint milk with cookies).

And if you want something really custom, add about $300 to your bid and I’ll make you a mold, too.

Starting Bid: 125

Shipping: Shipping in the US is included; I’m willing to ship internationally as well, but I am not an expert in international customs laws to confirm that it’ll get there safely, and would appreciate it if you’d bid higher accordingly.

Other Notes: Because chocolate melts easily, this item will be made and delivered in fall or winter, with some flexibility in scheduling. If you desperately need the chocolates for a summer event, there will be an additional shipping charge.

Bidding is now CLOSED on all items. Here's what to do next.
