Hi! My name is Larissa and I am the mastermind behind Bluebirds Chocolate. I am a chocolatier, recipe developer and confectionary maker. I am a wife, mom to one fantastic little boy and nature lover.
I have always loved baking and can remember baking chocolate chip cookies for my own cookie & lemonade stand! Even though I went to school for Criminology I really think I should have gone to Pastry School instead. My love of cooking, baking and trying out new recipes continued through college and into married life.
Before I had my son I would always make delicious candy and treats during the holidays for family and friends. I remember one year having a friend give back the tin their treats came in asking for a refill!
I got to the point where I had friends, family and colleagues asking to purchase the items I made. At that point I knew I wanted to open a small cottage business to sell my chocolates, caramels, marshmallows and other treats.
When 2020 hit and I ended up working from home full time I decided that there is no better time than now to go for it and follow my dreams. I have such a strong passion for my chocolate work and candy. I love the joy that it brings to my customers!
The name Bluebirds Chocolate came to be one late night over text with my mom. As a young child I have always loved little birds and Bluebirds in general hold a special place in my heart. My logo was designed for me by an amazing small business friend and the three birds represent myself, my husband and my son. I have even had my son say that he would like to continue the family business name when he is an adult.
If you are looking for something special or custom please reach out. I love working with people on bringing their ideas to life, whether for a small party or an evening wedding that needs custom marshmallows for their s'mores!
I look forward to bringing everyone treats to make their day sweeter!
