The diverse lineup of vendors is what truly encapsulates the authentic German-style holiday market experience that defines the Christkindlmarket.
Today, we’d like to shine a spotlight on one of our cherished vendors: Chocolate Moonshine. They will be a full-time presence at the Christkindlmarket Wrigleyville location this year.
Chocolate Moonshine is a family-owned artisan chocolate company, creating innovative products since 1985. Specializing in handcrafted Belgian chocolate confections, they are committed to using only the finest ingredients, featuring top quality imported Belgian Chocolate. Chocolate Moonshine Co is the creator of the original recipe, award winning, creamy, gourmet Fudge. Made by hand using founder, Chris Warman’s, original recipes, their fudge is remarkably still cooked in micro, 60-pound batches, in copper kettles, stirred with Maplewood paddles to a rich creamy texture, then slowly cooled.
Chocolate Moonshine use almost 30% less sugar because they use real ingredients like pure Pennsylvania cream, California and Hawaiian cane sugar, rich Belgian chocolate, and lots of fresh roasted nuts. This is a special gift, carefully hand packed just for you.
Chocolate Moonshine also creates luxury Belgian Chocolate Truffle Bars that are filled with creamy ganache and hand painted with cocoa butter, so each piece is as beautiful to look at as it is to eat. They offer ten varieties of indulgent wrapped caramels that are soft, gooey, and
irresistible. Their decadent hand-made confections include Belgian chocolate enrobed fruits and nuts such as blueberry explosions, bourbon Bing cherries, raspberries, almonds in many different flavor options, and the ever-popular orange bourbon pecans.
The caramel Turtles offered in Pecan or Cashew in Milk or Dark Belgian Chocolate make the perfect gift any time of the year. Chocolate Moonshine’s Belgian chocolate dipped ‘pretzels gone wild’ and other artisan pieces are made by hand to be enjoyed by all.
Chocolate Moonshine is a crowd favorite at the Christkindlmarket Wrigleyville, drawing in visitors with their high quality products and wide selection of sweet treats. Their indulgent confections make for a great gift for any occasion.
