I was thinking about the Holidays being right around the corner and wanted to offer a package that would include all of our special Christmas treats. So the Taste of Christmas package was born. Order this super yummy gift for yourself, a loved one, a business associate, or anyone that you want to send some Christmas Cheer! The package will include:
4 Candy Cane Oreos
4 Chocolate Covered Pretzels
1/2 Pound Chocolate Covered Peanut Brittle
1 Caramel/Chocolate Apple
All of this for $29.99! Yum!
It is the time of the year that so many people talk about what they are Thankful for, Family, Health, Friends, etc. While I am very thankful for each and everyone of these things, I think the thing I am most thankful for this year is the fact that I have figured out how to work and still be home with my children. My kiddo’s are in 3rd and 4th grade. Before I started Berrylicious Bouquets I was a full time stay at home mom. When they went to K and 1st grade it really made me what to figure out how I could work and also be home when the kids got on/off the bus, go on field trips with them, volunteer at school and generally still be a stay at home mom. Berrylicious has afforded me the ability to do all of these things and my amazing husband has helped me make it work in our home. Something that started as a small idea has defiantly turned into reality that I can do with a smile on my face and my family by my side!

The weather here in upstate NY during mid-late August can really make you think about Autumn. The days are not too hot or humid and the nights are cool, windows open, blankets on, type of sleeping. The other day while grocery shopping with my children, they were asking for everything under the sun, can I have a cookie? No! Can I have this sugary cereal? No! I NEED this ice cream! NO, NO, NO!!!(#1 reason for them to go back to school is so I can shop alone again!!). My 9 year old daughter asked me to make applesauce. In the fall I usually make enough for the year, but we ran out a couple of months ago. As we were picking apples, my daughter pick up one of the big granny smiths and said, “Mom, can’t you dip these in chocolate??” And that was it, the wheel were turning quickly. By the time we left I had 40 dollars in ingredients and was ready for the test kitchen. 2 days later I think I have the knack of it, and I have to say these apples are REALLY impressive. They are large enough to feed 2-3 people for sure. All are dipped in caramel first, then in Berrylicious Chocolate. Either Dark, White or Milk. Then the real fun begins, the toppings. So far we have tried, nuts, coconut, kit kat, heath bar, sugar dust, sprinkles, we did one with all 3 chocolates drizzled. We can make just about any combination you like the options are endless!
We are ready to announce our Berrylicious Birthday in home chocolate parties. I am combining my 10 years classroom teaching experience, my love for throwing parties and my passion for chocolate and bringing it all to you home to entertain your children and their friends for 1 hour – 1 1/4 hours. You will have time to greet your guest, and at the end time for cake, a berrylicious bouquet and presents and I will take over for the rest of the time.
The outline of the party is this:
-Each child will receive a cooks hat to decorate and keep.
-Each child will wear a Berrylicious Bouquet apron for the party, the birthday boy or girl will get to keep theirs.
-The parent will get to pick their theme color( choices are red, blue, orange, pink, purple, lime green). We will use your theme color and that way you will be able to decorate and keep it all coordinated.
-Each child will get to choose a chocolate lollipop mold and get to make 2 lollipops.
-While those dry, each child will be able to make and decorate 2 chocolate covered berries.
-I will make a Berrylicious Bouquet out of the berries for you to have with your cake.
-while the children watch me make a bouquet I will serve each one a Personal Fondue. It will consist of a small cup of chocolate and 4 dippers that were picked by the parent to serve.(there are 10 to pick from).
-After the fondue each child will remove their lollipops from the molds, bag them, and add a bow in the theme color.
-If time allows at the end we will play a chocolate themed game.
Each child will go home with 2 lollipops AND the hat they decorated. The birthday boy or girl will keep their apron.
The party is aimed at children aged 5-16. A basic party consists of 8 children plus the birthday boy or girl.

Last month I was planning a party for my children ages 8 and 9. I was trying to find an in home activity to go along with our party. WOW! Did I ever struggle. Here locally there are not a lot of programs to entertain children in the pre-tween to teen age group. It got me thinking. How great would it be to make and play with chocolate for an hour during a party. I thought I could take my background as a former public school teacher with 10 years classroom experience, my love for throwing fabulous parties AND my passion for chocolate together and help other parents throw fantastic parties. That one thought started a new business plan and outline for Berrylicious Birthday Parties. The model is for a 2 hour party where Berrylicious is the entertainment for the middle 1-1.15 hour and will be available very soon. The parties are targeted to children ages 5-14. 8 children, plus the birthday girl/boy is the standard size, children can be added to this number for an additional charge, up to a total of 15 party goers. This is what will be included in the birthday fun!
Party guest will…..
- Wear a Berrylicious Apron, the Birthday Boy/Girl will get to keep theirs as a keepsake of the day!
- Listen to Candy Themed Music
- Decorate a chef’s hat to wear and keep
- Choose a mold and make 2 chocolate lollipops. They will make, bag and bow these and take them home as favors.
- Dip and decorate 2 strawberries that will be made into a custom bouquet.
- Dine on a personal chocolate fondue.
- Play a chocolate themed game if time allows
There will be 6 theme colors for parents to choose from.
Some add on’s will include
- the purchase of a Berrylicious Apron for each child to keep
- additional dippers for the personal fondue
- a birthday cake from Cakes By Angelina to match your theme colors and brought to the party by Berrylicious Birthdays.
We are so excited to get started. As soon as our Berrylicious Aprons get here we will be booking dates for our new Super FUN Berrylicious Birthday Parties!!
This class is great for Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Sport Teams, or just a group of friends that would enjoy the experience. I was a teacher for 10 years after college and have taken my love of teaching and my love of chocolate and put them together for this special class:)
The class starts with CHOCOLATE!!! Each person gets to see what our chocolate looks like before it is melted and TASTE it!! While the chocolate melts we chat about how Berrylicious became a business and how we melt chocolate in our kitchen.
Once the chocolate is ready we show the children how to dip a berry, decorate it and let it dry. Then the fun begins. Each child gets to dip and decorate their own berry. While the berries are drying we take questions and have each child dip a rice Krispy treat and decorate that as a special treat. While they are munching away on their rice krispy treat I show the children how to put together a bouquet with the berries they dipped. That is usually photo time. We end the class with everyone having a chocolate covered strawberry.
This experience can he had here at Berrylicious HQ or WE WILL COME TO YOU! We can set up anywhere that has a counter or table and a plug!
Call us if you would like more information or to schedule a class for your special group! 312.6260
