Custom chocolate order, your choice of flavor and shapes

Originally posted at Con or Bust by Ariel. All comments must be made there.

Item Name and Description: Custom chocolate order in one flavor of your choice: 80+ custom truffles, 3+ pounds of molded chocolates, 60 pieces of handmade chocolate-dipped marzipan… Your imagination is the only real limit.


Why the quantity variation in this offering? You will get one full batch of anything I make, and the size will depend on what you order and how much you need. The quantities listed are the absolute minimum. If your sole priority is chocolate volume, the maximum order size is approximately 120 truffles or roughly 5 lbs of molded chocolate. If you want your order to consist of 30+ gourmet chocolate bars so you can stock up for a year, that can be done.


I’m a small-scale, Massachusetts-licensed chocolatier who specializes in geeky chocolates. Want ginger scald truffles with spicy ginger and pear brandy inspired by the Lies of Locke Lamora? Done that. Chocolate daleks, R2D2s, giant dice? Done. I can do decorated chocolates; my Daleks are metallic and my solid two-pound Millennium Falcon is starship grey on a black cake board with white chocolate stars. I’ll even make custom molds for you, if you make it worth my time by donating a lot. (For context, I usually charge about $200 for a new mold design. Pay for someone’s entire con visit, and I’ll help you make your chocolate dreams come true.)


Flavor inspiration at my website, although I am always inventing new flavors and will be happy to work with you on new ideas; pictures of a few of my molded chocolates can be found here.


Starting Bid: $125


Shipping: United States only.


Notes: Due to weather constraints (aka chocolate melting during shipping) this item will be delivered in the fall or winter; exact dates are flexible, so if you want custom chocolates for Halloween or Thanksgiving or Christmas, that can be done. Summer orders are negotiable but will require additional payment to cover the much higher summer shipping expenses.


Bidding opens on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern (time zone conversions). It will close on Sunday, June 5, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown) unless bids are received in the last ten minutes (learn more).
