Handcrafting our Candy
What makes our Curly Girlz Candy taste so good? Is it magic chocolate fairies working in our kitchen? Unfortunately, I don’t have any fairies working for me (total bummer, ‘cause then I wouldn’t have to work). So what makes us special? I believe our candies and chocolates are soooo delicious (and addicting) because we start with fresh, real ingredients (you know, stuff you can pronounce!) and then make each piece of candy by hand. It’s what we love to do and it’s this passion you taste when you enjoy a piece of Curly Girlz Candy.
Take our Drunken Cherries – I start by soaking the cherries in Brandy for a week. Then they are drained and dried overnight. A brandy-infused cherry cream center is made, wrapped around each cherry by hand, then double-dipped (GASP, by hand again!) in milk or dark chocolate. The finished cherries sit for a few days to liquefy the centers, making them like a cherry cordial. Delicious and addicting – it’s hard to have just one.
This attention to detail goes into all of our candy. You really can taste the difference between our handcrafted fresh chocolates and those you find at the big box stores. At Curly Girlz, we make sure you’re getting something made within the past week, not something sitting on the shelf for 6+ months. Yes, our candies cost a bit more, but aren’t you worth it?
