Hi! My name is Larissa and I am the chocolate lover behind Bluebirds Chocolate. I am a chocolatier, recipe developer and confectionary maker. I am a wife, mom to one fantastic little boy and nature lover.
I have always loved baking and can remember baking chocolate chip cookies for my own cookie & lemonade stand! Even though I went to school for Criminology I really think I should have gone to Pastry School instead. My love of cooking, baking and trying out new recipes continued through college and into married life.
Before I had my son I would always make delicious candy and treats during the holidays for family and friends. I remember one year having a friend give back the tin their treats came in asking for a refill!
I got to the point where I had friends, family and colleagues asking to purchase the items I made. At that point I knew I wanted to open a small cottage business to sell my chocolates, caramels, marshmallows and other treats.
When 2020 hit and I ended up working from home full time I decided that there is no better time than now to go for it and follow my dreams. I have such a strong passion for my chocolate work and candy. I love the joy that it brings to my customers!
If you are looking for something special or custom please reach out. I love working with people on bringing their ideas to life, whether for a small party or an evening wedding that needs custom marshmallows for their s'mores!
I look forward to bringing everyone treats to make their day sweeter!
