Chatelaine Chocolate, Montana’s gift to you

La chatelaine candy case

Bozeman, Montana is home to 2 great chocolatiers. La Châtelaine Chocolat Co. makes artfully crafted little gems filled with delectable flavors. According to their web site chatelainechocolate.com this company was started by a Frenchman (and his American wife) who created La Châtelaine after longing for the delectable chocolates from childhood. The two owners have trained in San Francisco and Paris. They also make pilgrimages to France each summer to expand their culinary repertoire. It sounds like they are living their dream, and we reap the delicious results…

I tried the tiramisu, and the blood orange. Each were tiny bites of perfectly balanced flavor and sweetness. The flavors which they make range from Cocoa Nib Caramel to King Bourbon. One of the fascinating combinations which they create is as follows: French Marigold which is White Chocolate Ganache infused with Fleur de Marigold Petals (really!) and Meyer Lemon covered in dark chocolate…whoa! Here’s another: Pain D’epices has in it Ginger, Cloves, Cinnamon, Black Pepper, Anise and Honey in Dark Chocolate Ganache with Dried Orange.

It’s no wonder that these candies are fairly pricey, but one piece will satisfy you due to its full flavor and richness.

La Chatelaine Caramels

I bought a little box of caramels and rationed one out each day. They are gone now, but their sweet memory lives on…

La Chatelaine

The box in which these come in is reminiscent of something from Paris. I would keep the box after all of the candy was gone. This would make a fantastic gift for the pickiest of candy connoisseurs.

I highly recommend that you visit their site to purchase these as a gift for your valentine. It will be a box of chocolate that will never be forgotten, and one that comes from Montana as well.
