Lillie Belle has arrived....

...and her beautiful designs and unique flavor combinations make her the belle of the ball. Lillie Belle chocolates are the creation of chef-turned-chocolatier Jeff Shepherd, and the company is named after his wife, Belle, and daughter, Lillie. The family resides on a certified organic farm in Central Point, Oregon where Jeff grows all of the berries used in his chocolates. Other ingredients are sourced locally as well, including cheese from nearby Rogue Creamery which is used in the Smokey Blue Cheese truffle. Chocolate and cheese might not sound like an ideal combination but the two pair perfectly with the toasted almonds that each truffle is rolled in. Other Lillie Belle flavors that can be found at Chocolopolis include Jamaican Spice Caramel, Chipotle Ganache, Black Pepper Ganache, Strawberry Cordial, and Lemon-Coconut Buttercream. We also have boxes of Cayenne Caramels, Berry Cordials, and Chocolate Covered Pears available for purchase.

Must try: Strawberry Cordial

For the adventurous: Black Pepper Ganache
