Artisan, Gluten-Free Chocolates
As a child growing up in the Caribbean, Wendy-Dawn was immersed in an environment with its diverse ethnic culture. She created what she described as “an intoxicating carnival of the senses.” This particular sense of abundance, wonder and always following her grandmother around the kitchen was the fuel for her future creative endeavors .
After graduating from Hunter College and Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Wendy started a career as a visual stylist with Cartier on 5th Ave in Manhattan, and simultaneously pursued her hobby in pottery and clay design. Pottery gave her an opportunity to master the process of creating luxury products from the basics to perfection.
After exiting Cartier she moved into corporate America, spending over fifteen years working as a manager with major International clothing brands. During her years in the fashion business, she gradually grew her own list of wealthy clients (for personal and private shopping excursions.)
While on her quest searching for the magic formula “carnival of senses” that combines a refined palette, fashion, sophisticated texture and uniqueness, Wendy-Dawn found herself starting her own chocolate company, combining her artistic background with entrepreneurial skills.
Being always keen to learn and improve her skills, Wendy took intensive courses in chocolate truffle and bonbon production. It felt compelling so she pursued further training at the French Culinary Institute and L’Ecole Vahlrona in New York City.
Since then, Wendy-Dawn has concentrated on creating her own original style of making chocolate. The intense process involves hand-rolling and a combination of ingredients that deliver purity and perfection in each bite. Her goal is to preserve all the health benefits of pure chocolate, along with a flavor that will be easy to remember and hard to resist.
Truffolie discretely invites you into the world of decadence and luxury, without guilt
“I was blown away by the whole experience of these truffles! Opening the box is a feast of its own, revealing a host of gorgeously hand-shaped chocolates with delicate glazes that make them seem almost like jewels. Do not bother thinking you will only have one. Every flavor is satisfying, distinct and rich. Some are more explosive and surprising, like the Caribbean Kiss and the Cayenne Sour Cherry. If you’re like me you will not be able to resist finding your favorite. It’s playful, delicious and totally worth it.”
“Jonathan and I loved the new spicy truffle! Bursting with flavor, and interesting new flavor. I am tempted to have another and trade with the kids for a different flavor.”

“Hi Wendy the sour cherry is sublime. Love the chewiness. Caramel taffy divine. Ditto the coffee orange and walnut.You have a lovely and delicious product. The ganache texture is wonderful.”
“1. Calypso of course. You know how I like my spice- just right! Then # 2. Coffee Orange- oh so right, so Bee-utiful! #3. White Sour Cherries- oh so pretty. And then Coconut & Choco-late my Birthday Dream… I’ve been dreaming of that combination for my birthday cake for 3 or 4 years now. (I happen to share my birthday with my Sister ever since 1947 & I can’t seem to get it out of my head). So what a nice surprise! It’s really a winning combination. I love it. I might just have to have 1 more. OMG -You did it- Marshmallow so delicate. I really must stop now or I’ll end up in the hospital. It’ like a box of fun & love. FYI: and thought the marshmallow was incredible!!!”
