Each year we partner with our favorite chocolatiers across the Bay Area to design the ultimate chocolate Advent calendar. We plan towards this day for months and then on one busy morning, everyone organizes to fill a limited edition of Advent calendars. Our collaborators represent small makers from across the Bay Area and our production run is limited by their small kitchens and by how many treats can be hand-dipped or scooped by one or two-person teams.
Our third annual San Francisco Advent Calendar is our most elaborate yet. The calendar opens to just over two-feet wide to reveal 25 individual boxes with iconic San Francisco landmarks. Each box contains a treat from the Bay Area’s most talented chocolatiers who use Dandelion Chocolate in their brittles, bonbons, and truffles.
This year includes favorites such as Lisa Vega’s nibby toffee, Kika’s graham crackers, and Feve’s single-origin truffles. We also welcome new collaborators this year such as Melissa Santos’ bonbons, Claire Kean’s buttery toffees, and Christine Doerr’s barks. This year’s full collaborator list includes:
• Christine Doerr of NeoCocoa
• Claire Keane of Claire Squares
• Cristina Arantes of Kika’s Treats
• Kathy Wiley of Poco Dolce
• Melissa Santos of Cadence Chocolates
• Mindy Fong of Jade Chocolates
• Michelle Hernandez of Le Dix Sept
• Shawn Williams of Feve Artisan Chocolatier
• Lisa Vega of Dandelion Chocolate
11/22 Update: We have a limited quantity of Advent calendars remaining. If you’d like a calendar, we recommend placing your order soon.
