Peppermint, eggnog, gingersnap, cranberries…we all have specific flavors that come to mind when the holiday season is approaching—and those flavors are made even better with the addition of chocolate! Katherine Duncan, founder and confectionista of Katherine Anne Confections, a locally-focused chocolatier, is excited to host a Preview Party featuring all of the upcoming holiday flavors for the month of December—truffles, caramels and marshmallows that evoke the tastes of the holidays. The confectionistas have been busy creating some delicious traditional treats like the Cranberry Blood-Orange truffle and the Brown Buttered Rum truffle, as well as some new flavors like the Pear Cranberry Walnut truffle and the Bourbon Chai caramel!
The Preview Party is a chance for attendees to preview and indulge in 23 new limited edition, un-launched truffles, caramels and marshmallows to be released in December, just in time for the holiday season! The treats will be available at the confiserie.
