It is with a heavy heart that we inform all of our Chocology readers about the fire at one of Chocology Gives Back Non-Profits. On Saturday, February 3 a fire broke out in the restaurant of Chef Bruno, one of Madeline's CNN Heroes. Fortunately no one was hurt, however over 80% of the restaurant was destroyed. It will be between 8 and 10 months before they are able to be back up and running.
Chocology has not only donated to but worked closely with Caterina's Club and the children from the Anaheim Boys and Girls Club. The Anaheim White House was home to these charitable organizations. We send our love and prayers for a speedy recovery and are hear to help in any way we can.
If you would like to help, a GoFund me account has been set up on behalf of the Anaheim White house here.
The work of Caterina's Club will go on. To learn more about this wonderful organization headed up by Chef Bruno, or to contribute to their cause please visit here.
It is such an honor to work with this organization that helps so many families and children. We know that the spirit of this organization will survive this hardship and forge forward through this recovery period. To read more about Madeline's involvement with Chef Bruno please visit this link

October is a special month to me – my birth month. At this time of year, I always feel the pull towards self-reflection and reevaluation of my goals and purpose. It is a time in which I recommit and align my actions with my innermost desires and vision. This year I am grateful for the path I have taken with Chocology. It brings joy, connection and fun into my life. This is why I’d like to share with all of you why I do what I do.
No. 1: I love seeing people smile
Everyone LOVES chocolate! It is such a blessing to have the opportunity to work with people who are happy and enjoying themselves. I love helping our clients choose the perfect gift, dessert for a special event or wedding favors. People are happy when they talk chocolate and this makes me happy as well. Madeline always says, “We meet the best people!” and she’s right. We are fortunate to cross paths with people in their finest moments.
No. 2: I’m good at it!
Being the Managing Director of my own company allows me to utilize all of my gifts and talents. Strong work ethic, good communication skills and a love of people are key ingredient's to running a successful business. Do what you love and you never work a day of your life! That is our philosophy and it’s worked well for us at Chocology. I love what I do every single day and am able to thrive because of this philosophy!
No. 3: I get to do it with my family!
One of the greatest gifts I feel I can give to my daughter is to show her that when you set a goal it can be achieved through hard work, a good attitude and perseverance. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to model for my daughter that your dreams can come true! Not everyone has the privilege of working with family. Recently David is able to join us more and more on our chocolate adventures! We never know what is around the corner, but together we get the job done – ALWAYS!
No. 4: Every Day is Different
I love different! It’s so easy to get stuck in the humdrum of day-to-day life. At Chocology, each day is diversified. One day we’re working with children on a Chocology Kids project and the next we’re working with the senior’s community. We might go to a corporate meeting to serve fudge and then head out to plan a wedding or work on one of the various festivals that we attend. There’s always something new and fresh to keep us motivated and excited.
No. 5: Giving Back to our World
From the very beginning it was important to me to give back. I feel so blessed to live a happy and joyful life. Giving a little of that back makes me even happier. I don’t work for a non-profit however I sure can support them. And that’s what we do, plain and simple. Not only to we glean joy from helping our non-profits with monetary donations, we love doing simple acts of kindness. I just love it when parents allow their children to come by our Farmers Market booth to make purchases by themselves. The parents have realized that we take those children under our wings and feel blessed to have them as customers too. Kids are the best at “the art of tasting” and we love seeing them take it so seriously. We love giving our money, our smiles and our compassion to everyone that we meet!
No. 6: I Get to Travel
If you’ve read our blog, you know I love to travel. I love going new places and being the owner of Chocology provides that travel outlet for me. Whether it’s driving to the East End, traveling on the ferry across the Long Island Sound to make deliveries in Connecticut or going cross-country to deliver a check to one of our non-profits, the opportunity to travel keeps life interesting and new every single day.
No 7: It provides Freedom and Autonomy
Most people think that when you own your own business, you get to set your own hours. This is not exactly true. I make myself available to my clients therefore my hours are dictated by the need. However, I do have the flexibility to use creativity to get a job done well and efficiently. People often ask, “How do you manage balance in your life?” My answer: “I don’t. I integrate.” Being with my daughter Madeline and my husband David is very important to me. We’ve learned to integrate our time together as a family while enjoying running the business. And I not only get to be with my daughter while homeschooling, I get to teach her about having a career that you love and doing it with a joyful heart.
No. 8: I can do it all!
Admittedly, I will welcome the day when our growth allows for more employees and my position will be more of a leadership role. For now, I get the opportunity to run the business both from the front and back end. Creativity, New Products, Website, Social Media, New Client visits, special events – these are the things I love. Bookkeeping – Not so much! Luckily, I love developing both sides of my brain; Analytical and Creative. There are so many facets of my personality and they serve me well in running the business. I need to switch hats quickly from planning and creative thinking to one of analytical and business-minded thinking. One day soon there will be others that can help, but for now I love the constant shifting and maneuvering that my business demands of me.
Overall, the message is that I am so grateful for my life as the owner and Managing Director of Chocology. I feel blessed to come across so many wonderful people out in the world. I love making people happy! The smiles I get to see are the icing on the cake! I love my life and thank all of those that have helped me live out my dream of running a family business.
Nothing says “thank you” like decadent chocolate. That’s why Chocology has prepared some exquisite choices for our corporate clients this year. Chocology realizes the importance of your business relationships and we go the extra mile to show them that you care.
We love the subtle changes of autumn at Chocology: the crispness in the air, the changing leaves and a hint of the festive holidays to come. The season reminds us of grandmothers working tirelessly in the kitchen, preparing goodies for the celebrations of fall. Popcorn balls, Candied Apples and of course fudge.
Autumn is fudge season and we at Chocology have been testing flavors that we hope will set the stage for all of your fall festivities. Our final products: A quartet of comfort flavors that will enhance your celebrations and have you relaxing into the mood of the season.
For our pumpkin lovers we have the Fat Ass Pumpkin Pie Butterscotch. Healthy pumpkin accompanied by rich butterscotch and finished with a hint of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
Straight Maple—minus the nuts. For those of you who believe that the nuts just get in the way of the mouth-watering velvet fudge.
Maple and Walnuts make up our Fat Ass Maple Walnut fudge. Loaded with crisp walnuts – you can’t go wrong with this choice!
And finally, rich and creamy caramel mingled with fresh, crunchy pecans to fashion our Fat Ass Caramel Pecan fudge.
In addition to our new fall flavors we have another surprise in store! Send the gift that keeps on giving with our Fat Ass Fudge of the month subscription. Choose a 3 or 6-month subscription and your loved one will receive a Chocology Choice Fat Ass Fudge package each month for as long as the subscription is active. A personalized note can be sent with each gift as well. Even better – your recipient will get to choose their favorite fudge for their last delivery.
What’s more is that Fat Ass Fudge is the gift that is far reaching. When you place your order, choose one of the Chocology Cares charities and we will give a percentage of the proceeds to your charity of choice. Chocology cares about community and giving back. Your gift subscription says, “I love you” in more ways than one.
We hope you have a wonderful autumn season filled with family, friends and chocolate!
