IMG_0811

Wild Sweets by Dominique & Cindy Duby produces unique hand painted chocolates with complex flavour fillings along with caramels, confections and more. I had a chance to taste several of their chocolates, caramels, and much more recently at a private session with them inside their chocolate factory/micro-store.
