We start this caramel-making process by cooking down a generous portion of local bacon, then we make the caramel in the same pot to get all of the crispy bits from the bottom. A sprinkle of flaky sea salt balances the flavor. Seasonal.
SenTeaMental Moods is our favorite loose-leaf tea: an awesome company run by a great lady, who blends teas right here in Chicago. We are focusing on her green tea with this caramel, infusing it into our classic caramel for a dose of grassy, caffeine-y deliciousness. Tart grapefruit adds a fruity, tropical note. Seasonal.
We infuse our marshmallow syrup with SenTeaMental Moods loose-leaf earl grey tea, lavender blossoms, and a strip of orange zest. We love the balanced flavor of this treat! Perfect in coffee or tea (of course) but also excellent in hot chocolate or right out of the bag. Seasonal.
Our fluffy artisan marshmallow made with a (very) generous splash of bubbly champagne. Organic sugar and local wildflower honey - NO corn syrup - makes this the perfect gift for the food-lover in your life, while a sprinkle of organic rose petals is fit for any sweetheart. Seasonal.
Tea and chocolate is one of our favorite combinations, so when it came time to design February sweets, it made perfect sense to include Lady Grey. We infuse earl grey tea, lavender, and a touch of orange in bittersweet chocolate for a herbal, slightly floral and citrusy truffle. Delightful paired with red wine. Seasonal.
Chocolate, caramel, and coffee. What could go wrong? Milk and semisweet chocolate are the perfect base for our soft honey caramel. Cream infused with locally roasted coffee from Ipsento is blended in, then the truffle is dipped in milk chocolate. Seasonal.
Extra-rich local cream is infused with locally blended chai tea and a bevy of spices: cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and star anise. The addition of black pepper makes this the perfect winter truffle. Fragrant, spicy notes and white chocolate are reminiscent of a chai tea latte. Seasonal.
