You probably think my job is all chocolate and sprinkles right? Only getting the dish on the sugar? So not true – well, ok – that’s MOST of my job, but a close second passion of mine is finding out the story behind a company. Did they start from family recipes & traditions passed down throughout the generations? Was it a childhood dream finally coming true? This is where my love falls, while having a plate full of chocolates nearby.
Penny Chocolates – a delicious company of homemade Chocolate and Gelato started by an extraordinary Pastry Chef, Cheryl Schneider, along with her devoted cheerleader & favorite little doggie, Penny.
Cheryl began as an attorney, a what??! You thought this was about a Pastry Chef with a passion? Here’s the best part! Cheryl didn’t even realize that chocolate was a passion and a true calling of hers. It all started with a gift certificate to a culinary school that was gifted to her and was about to expire. On a whim and with no time in her schedule, Cheryl signed herself up for a 20 week class in pastry arts……and the rest is history my friends!
Penny Chocolates come in an adorable little package and filled with creamy and delicious – hand crafted chocolates. The perfect little gift to send or of course, like I do, gift it AND gift yourself!
Don’t you love this story? I just love when the dreams you never thought you had are revealed and become a turning point in ones life to true love, passion and devotion!
Beautifully done Cheryl, beautifully done.
