Faraday’s has a NEW LOCAL CHOCOLATIER from Austin- and is it GOOD… Wayward Chocolat!

Wayward Faradays has a NEW LOCAL CHOCOLATIER from Austin  and is it GOOD... Wayward Chocolat!

We have an incredible new chocolate maker here in Austin, and you can get their products at Faraday’s! Come in and sample the pure goodness.

Wayward Chocolat blends real dark chocolate that naturally contains 70 percent cocoa solids and rich cocoa butter with organic wild rose hips and berries, incredibly rich with antioxidants, from Alaska.

chocolat 200x300 Faradays has a NEW LOCAL CHOCOLATIER from Austin  and is it GOOD... Wayward Chocolat!From there, they temper the chocolate and pour it into custom-made molds to perfect their treats’ delicate shells. Then they mix up batches of dark chocolate ganache (whipped filling made out of chocolate and cream), adding pure organic cream, enrichments, and even more dark chocolate. The shells are filled with just the right amount of ganache, sealed, and finally chilled.

And here’s the kicker: Even after all that, each piece of chocolate ends up carrying only 80 calories. No sugar is added during the process.

But here’s the bottom line: they taste INCREDIBLE.  The chocolate shell is thin and crisp, while the ganache is the richest, creamiest, most decadent you can imagine. You’d never imagine that this is actually chocolate that is good for you. I’m a chocolate snob, and I am hooked.

We have their chocolates in either an 8-count or 15-count box, and we’ve got their Ganache Sauce and Ganache Spread as well. (Try the Ganache Spread on a croissant!) These make an amazing hostess gift, or a wonderful treat to enjoy yourself.  Pair with a bottle of red wine… heaven.  Prices start at $15.
