The best way to find out the amount of chocolate inside a package is its net weight. The net weight of a food product can easily be found on the front of its packaging. Although this number is helpful, it can still be challenging to understand what it means.
While stocking stuffers are known as small token gifts, they can leave a big impression. The time-old adage, “It’s the thought that counts,” is still accurate today. Showing appreciation to friends and family is an essential part of any gift, and a stocking stuffer or two is all it takes.
For those looking to give or enjoy Dilettante Chocolates before Christmas, place orders before 11 a.m. on December 15th. The increased demand for shipping caused delays for Dilettante’s shipping partners last year, and shipping earlier than expected is recommended.
The holiday season is finally here, and Dilettante Chocolates has been hard at work. Each year, many choose to share our chocolates with their friends and family. For this year, Dilettante brought together its most popular confections throughout the years in two new holiday-themed gift boxes.
In a previous blog, Dilettante discussed how best to keep chocolate fresh. The whole post gives more information, but in essence, chocolate is best kept in a dry, room-temperature environment. Storing chocolate this way can keep chocolate fresh for several months, but is there a way to store it for longer?
Dilettante Chocolates is happy to announce its Candy Cane TruffleCremes are back, just in time for the holiday season. These TruffleCremes are wrapped in festive red and silver foils and make a perfect gift for friends and family during the upcoming winter months.
As the festive holiday season approaches, Dilettante Chocolates readies itself to share its chocolate craftsmanship with its supporters once again. Our chocolatiers have been hard at work, and old favorites are returning to Dilettante.com, including Candy Cane TruffleCremes and the Fruit Medley Gift Box. The upcoming winter season is exciting, but there are a few things chocolate lovers should know before picking up gifts.
It is often said that a piece of dark chocolate and a glass of red wine before bed can help a person stay healthy. Although these two may seem like unlikely candidates for health foods, both are linked to undeniable health benefits. The only question that remains is, do the benefits outweigh the drawbacks?

As the fall days continue to pass by, more people find ways to stay cozy during the cool days. For the Dilettante Mocha Café, warm coffee and mocha drinks are more popular, and more often than not, these drinks are accompanied by a hand-dipped chocolate truffle.
Espresso and chocolate have delicious compatibility with one another and have been enjoyed together for many years. The delicious taste comes from a juxtaposition between coffee’s bitterness and chocolate’s sweetness. The balance of flavor between these two makes their resulting flavor unforgettable.
October is a festive time many choose to celebrate with decorations, costumes, and Halloween candy. During this time of year, trick-or-treaters look forward to filling their bags with sugary fall candies. It may be easy to imagine what candy looks like, but defining candy can be more difficult.
Merriam-Webster defines candy as “A confection made with sugar and often flavoring and filling.” All chocolate could be classified as candy using this definition. Yet, a hand-dipped chocolate truffle is remarkably different from a handful of candy corn.
After many months of anticipation, Dilettante’s Bellevue Plaza Center Mocha Café is now open. Monday through Friday, the café will serve visitors freshly prepared foods and delicious coffee drinks.
Located on 10900 NE 8th Street in Bellevue, Washington, this café is in the heart of downtown Bellevue. A stark contrast to the bustling city, a quiet hum of music creates a calm and cozy atmosphere. The ample space between tables and bar counter seating also gives people the opportunity to spread out.
