Peterbrooke Chocolatier Winter Park

Last week I was invited to a Valentine's Day Preview Party at Peterbrooke Chocolatier in Winter Park. The owners Jami and Kevin Wray graciously welcomed some food bloggers into the store to share with us some of their chocolate creations they have available for Valentine's Day.

I walked in and the first thing I spotted were these amazing Chocolate Covered Strawberries! These beauties are big and delicious.

Our group enjoyed tasting many favorites that the store offers not only for Valentine's Day, but also year round. One of my favorite treats they have at Peterbrooke and one of their top sellers is the Chocolate Covered Popcorn. You can get this in both milk and dark chocolate, but call ahead for dark chocolate since it's not always available.

You can always find gift baskets themed year round, but I liked the many options of sizes and prices available during Valentine season.

During our visit to Peterbrooke we were also pairing some of their chocolate with local wine from Quantum Leap Winery. Who doesn't love chocolate and wine? My friend Lisa at Orlando Uncorked is going to be hosting a Wine and Chocolate Perfectly Paired class at Quantum Leap Winery on February 12th. You will be able to enjoy wine and chocolate pairings from Quantum Leap Winery and Peterbrooke Chocolatier. I've enjoyed these two paired and they are quite delicious together.  This would make for a fun date night.

Along with sampling their milk and dark chocolate we also got to try their Truffle Cookies, and oh my! These are a nice treat and if you call ahead they will make sure they save you some warm out of the oven. The cookies are a little bit of chocolate heaven.

Peterbrooke also has some other beautifully designed Valentine Day cookies that are available to add to a gift basket or to purchase on their own.

One of the highlights of our visit was the Chocolate Shoes. They look so real! These shoes can be designed however you like and your own label can be put on the inside of the shoe. Jami was telling us a story about a man who used one of their shoes to propose to his wife by putting a ring inside the shoe.

While this visit was for a Valentine's Day Preview I couldn't help, but notice the Chocolate Football with a Bronco logo. We are a Bronco family and I thought this was so much fun. They do offer a football for that other team as well ;)

I have been to Peterbrooke Chocolatier many times and each visit I'm finding out something new about the store. I adore Jami and Kevin; they are very passionate about their product. Their store is an independent store and they strive on producing a quality product making sure they always have happy customers.

While I think chocolate from Peterbrooke Chocolatier is a wonderful treat any time, Valentine's Day makes it a bit sweeter.
