HELLO CHOCOLATE FRIENDS!
I hope the new year is staring off strong for everyone! It was amazingly busy and successful year for B Cocoa and I just wanted to say a special thank you to everyone for your support! 2016 was a year of firsts for B Cocoa, one year ago, I had my first ever chocolate workshop in my HOUSE. Strangers came in and trusted me for their Valentine date night and our workshops have taken off from there! A wonderful friend introduced me to the amazingly talented Kathryn Hager and she graciously opened up her adorable store Little h Creative to me for workshops and retail space. She will be moving this month and you will be able to purchase B Cocoa chocolate bars from there all the time and truffles when we feature them.
We had an amazing time at the first public Market Wichita Falls at the new downtown loft 9th Street Studios and I got to meet so many people that follow me on Instagram and Facebook. Stay tuned for the Spring Market Wichita Falls details!
Christmas was AMAZING this year! From fun workshops with mom's and kiddos to the shipments nationwide and repeatedly sold out hot cocoa (which proved to be our best seller). I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your support, this has been our busiest and best year ever!

The current trend in social media is to pick a word for the new year. So... following the trend, I have decided that my word is INTENTIONAL. This year, I am going to make sure that my relationships, how I do business, and my actions are all intentional. That means, plan on new blog posts with information on chocolate trends, methods and recipes. AND, more updates of what we have going on in the near future. 2017 is going to have a lot of exciting and new ventures so please stay tuned!
Staying consistent with my word for the new year, I want to update everyone on what is coming up in the next few weeks...
