The rumors are true!  We've just completed another batch of our extra-rich "European style" Drinking Chocolate Kit.

More than a basic hot chocolate, this is a gooey, thick hot drink you make at home, with the included freshly-made marshmallow that melts to form a fluffy layer on the top!

These guys ALWAYS sell out, so come on down and get yours soon!

Featured Creme Egg of the Day: Scotchmallow!

The flavor we run out of every single year - our very popular Scotchmallow. It's a layer of our hand-made creamy vanilla butterscotch on top of a layer of our small-batch artisanal marshmallow, formed into an egg shape, and individually enrobed in our premium chocolate, both Milk and Dark.

We also stock a simpler egg which is just the butterscotch!

Featured Creme Egg of the Day: Coconut Cream

Our Coconut Creme is a freshly made fondant with a hint of coconut. Cast by hand into shape, it is then individually enrobed in our premium chocolate, in Milk or Dark, and of course wrapped in shiny foil. Even in a chilly Spring, the Coconut Cream is an Easter egg that might remind you of the tropics!

Featured Creme Egg of the Day: Divinity, Marzipan, Truffle

You know what a chocolate truffle is, and the truffle egg is an enormous chocolate truffle wrapped in foil. You know marzipan is a sweet almond paste. But what the heck is divinity?!

"Divinity" is something like a stiff white fudge, with no chocolate in it -- a proper divinity has a substance to the bite without being chewy, while not being dry like a meringue. Well-made divinity is pretty hard to find these days, but it's an old fashioned candy Preston's Candy is proud to still make!

Our small-batch divinity is thicker and less sweet than a fondant, with a little bit of chopped nuts inside. Formed into an egg shaped, it is then covered with our premium chocolate in Milk or Dark. It's a fancy egg-shaped artisanal candy bar!

Featured Creme Egg of the Day: Vanilla Cream

Do you like Cadbury Creme Eggs? The sweet fondant in the middle with a yellow "yolk?" The crisp crunch of the chocolate?

Well... what if the chocolate was a premium blend from Guittard? And available in Milk or Dark? What if each egg was individually enrobed in a thick layer of chocolate? What if each center was freshly made, with no preservatives? What if each egg was twice the size of a Cadbury Creme Egg?!

What you'd have there would be a Vanilla Cream Easter Egg from Preston's. They are darn good, if we say so ourselves.
