What a great way to spend the rainy day sampling chocolates under one roof.


To continue with the fond memories of the chocolate festival, I will be posting pictures of the event by showcasing the chocolatiers and the vendors and their works of art. Be sure to come back to this page as it will be updated regularly featuring the artist of the day and their products.


So… let our journey begin with:


Ykchaua Chocolates

Ykchaua (pronounced ick-chow-ah) is the ancient Mayan patron god of cocoa merchants. Unlike the Aztecs, the Maya made chocolate a part of everyday life, sharing the drink with others as a social bonding experience, and even growing the trees in their own back yards.

Hot Cakes Confections

Producers of artisan, organic sweet treats made with carefully sourced ingredients. We are famous for our “take n bake molten chocolate cake in a mason jar” but also throw down on some other wicked sweet creations – like the best caramel sauce you have ever had. Or fresh packed pies filled with the season’s best.

Currently we vend at the Seattle farmers markets and a handful of boutique shops carry our cakes and sauces. Our inspiration is boundless and our future is in the works… however we may expand, know that we will keep an honest approach to producing exceptional, earthy, rogue and sensual sweet creations for your enjoyment. It is our pleasure to feed you. To read more on Hot Cakes Confections click here…


Parfait Organic Artisan Ice Cream

Parfait’s delicious ice cream is a true labor of love. All of our artisan products are prepared from our own recipes and handmade in the Parfait kitchen.

Our custard base is 100% organic and contains only four ingredients: milk, cream, sugar, and eggs. Our flavors come from only real foods and contain no corn syrup or added stabilizers. Every one of our signature cones is pressed on a specialty iron, and hand-rolled with care. We even make our own toffee, peanut butter cups, brownies, and sauces! Parfait meticulously sources our dairy, eggs, and produce directly from local, certified organic farms. To read more on Hot Cakes Confections click here…

Blissful Wunders

My name is Bliss and I would like to introduce you to my confectionery delights. These handmade chocolate truffles are created with all organic, all natural, preservative-free ingredients. I use only the finest ingredients, including organic butter, organic heavy cream, and fair trade organic chocolate containing 65% cocoa mass from Columbia. I make all my own fruit purees using fruit supplied from a local Pacific Northwest vendor and organic cane juice as the sweetener. All my food colorings are plant-based, purchased from an organic vendor.

I offer a vegan variety for most of the flavors of my truffles. They contain organic coconut cream, Earth balance vegan buttery blend, chocolate and fruit purees. There is no major difference between the dairy and non-dairy in texture or flavor, although some customers have thought the vegan versions are actually creamier.

Every one of my truffles is created with loving care and individually hand rolled, hand dipped, designed, packaged and labeled with your enjoyment in mind. To read more on Blissful Wunders click here… 


Bargello Bakery & Confections

Savor the luscious flavor of individually handmade confections created from the freshest ingredients around. Bargello Bakery and Confections crafts fine chocolates, delicious chewy caramels and decadent truffles that combine a blend of old favorites and new unique flavors.

Bargello Caramels fill your mouth with a buttery richness that brings you right back to Mom’s kitchen. Stuffed with fresh toasted almonds, rolled in pure maple sugar, made with pure dark chocolate or just chewy plain caramel, the old-fashioned goodness gives you that delicious taste of home.

Divine Chocolate

Choosing Divine as your chocolate treat is a delicious way of playing your part in a more equitable trading partnership. Divine is the only Fairtrade chocolate company which is 45% owned by the farmers. While Fairtrade ensures farmers receive a better deal for their cocoa and additional income to invest in their community, company ownership gives farmers a share of Divine’s profits and a stronger voice in the cocoa industry. That’s good business!
