Kingsbury Chocolates opened for business in November, 2001. Self-trained chocolatier Rob Kingsbury embraced his Vermont maple sugar roots and inherited his love of confection making from his grandparents. Starting with his family's recipes, Rob tweaked them with finer imported chocolate and novel ingredients. Today his maple popcorn crunch drizzled in chocolate is a daily thank you to his grandparents love of family and sweets — who sold their original maple popcorn at a roadside stand. Today's chocolates and confections showcase Kingsbury's sophisticated whimsy.
This course will share with you some of Robert's chocolate heritage and will be sure to impress your friends and family with these amazing chocolate truffles.
