Welcome to Chocolates By Vanessa, the BEST chocolates made in Citrus County, Florida!

"I started dabbling with chocolate and molding it into different shapes when my children were young. We had so much fun "playing" with chocolate and discovering what we could create.

When I started, I only had a few molds, but now I have mastered sculpting them into different shapes, and I have over 250 molds. In addition to chocolate molding, I also have experimented and learned how to create a marble effect. It gives such a unique look to great pieces of molded chocolate.

It was about three years ago that I started making chocolates as gifts. Someone told me that I should sell my "creations" at local craft fairs. I decided to try it out, for fun, shortly after that and it wasn’t long before it took off.

Today, I sell more than 100 pieces at each fair I attend. My product uses Merken’s chocolate and I make all of my fillings from scratch. I almost always have sugar-free pieces available.

I can create chocolates for any occasion and for every holiday imaginable including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, 4th of July, and more. Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthday Parties, Sweet Sixteen, Bar Mitzvah, etc. We even do corporate events and sporting events, like Super Bowl party chocolates. Whatever your need, we can create custom chocolates just for you!

Being named "Best of the Best" in Citrus County for candy is by far my greatest accomplishment. The fact that I have won three times speaks volumes to my quality. I am truly blessed, and continue to have fun in what I do. I can only hope to continue to grow and expand on my chocolate creations.

Please call or email me today to discuss our special chocolates that will make a lasting impression at your next big event."
