Compartes Chocolates, a favorite at LA Artisan Food Festival

Compartes Chocolatier participated in Artisanal LA, an event celebrating the city’s finest local, sustainable and handmade foods.

Our latest addition to the Compartes catalog – a jar of our incredibly addictive homemade organic honey peanut butter sea salt – sold out! So right after the event came to a close we headed straight to the factory to make more for the second day of the weekend long event – which again sold out!! No wonder, with our honey + peanut butter + sea salt truffles, it was an irresistible souvenir to take home and spread on toast from breakfast! You can also buy the peanut butter truffles which are dark chocolate coated and filled with our homemade peanut butter spread by clicking here  LA Weekly even named our peanut butter as "best of the event". Read LA Weekly's glowing review of our peanut butter here!



Foodies swarmed around the Compartes booth and we were left with more write-ups than any other participant! People absolutely adored our signature truffles and our magnificent display of custom chocolate boxes we have created for corporate clients. Anyone can customize our organic chocolate truffles with names, logos, colors; any design you can think of! For info on custom chocolate email info@compartes.com or call 310.826.3380

Children's Chocolate Party at Compartes LA Chocolate Store

We all know how much energy children have, but wait till you bring them to Compartes Chocolatier to dip their own chocolate! Yes, that’s right, last weekend at Compartes Chocolatier, more than twenty children came to dip their own chocolates… it was not as messy as it sounds!

Entering in little groups they first each gave their name which was written down and attached to their own tray. They then received a guided tour of the factory containing some of the original Compartes equipment from 1950…

… and then came the fun! Into the Magic Room, laid out on plates were marshmallows, Oreo cookies, Graham Crackers and Pretzels...

 

Choosing five pieces each, the children dipped their selections into the kettles of milk and dark chocolate, laid each piece out on their tray, then with a bit of effort (waiting for chocolate to dry is as exciting as it is difficult, at any age!) tried their patience outside with fun and games.


Twenty minutes later and finally dry, they collected their very own hand-dipped confections and sat down to enjoy the deliciousness and satisfaction. We were left with some very happy children!!


Does this sound like something you are interested in doing for your children? Please drop in to our store, call or email us for more information on planning your own chocolate-covered party!

Children's Chocolate Dipping Party!

Last weekend twenty children came on a very chocolatey outing to dip their own confections in the Compartes kitchen!

 

 

In groups of five to ten, while the others enjoyed games and crafts outdoors on the patio, began the factory tour by Compartes Owner Jonathan Grahm. As he showed them how the chocolates are made and stored, he even let the children into the gigantic fridge on their way through! In turn their names were then written on stickers and placed onto plates where they would let their chocolate creations dry! And so on they journeyed into the dipping room, the fresh chocolate churning delectably in the chocolate kettles! Neatly aside set out ready for dipping were fresh strawberries, marshmallows, pretzels, Oreo Cookies and Vanilla Wafers… mmm!


Then came the fun! After a short demonstration, mouths left watering, the children excitedly sprang into action! Taking it in turns (patience was short with the scent of fresh chocolate as it whisked before them!) they each chose five confections to dip in one of the two kettles: milk chocolate or dark chocolate.

 

Content with their accomplishments, their chocolate was moved into the refrigerator to cool.

Ten minutes later, chocolates ready, children jumping with excited impatience, what could have been more rewarding than biting into their very own handmade chocolates!?
