The Ostara Ensemble

Regular price $125.00 Save $-125.00

NEW! Limited Edition Easter Collection. A spring offering of truffles and bonbons fit for a god/dess. Budding flowers, fruits and roots meld with chocolate bringing the sweet tastes of the dawn of rebirth. Inspired by our muse, Ostara, we pay homage to god/desses and Mother Nature, who inspire us to embrace the light and warmth of the sun-filled spring season. 

The goddess Ostara is celebrated by all in her orbit for bringing the womb of spring, filled with its beauty and abundance. She is a symbol that winter has passed and that longer days lie ahead. Her sacred hare, Lepus, who legend says was once a bird, was imbued by Ostara with the magic of laying eggs. The eggs were colored in bright hues by her minions of rabbits and given to children in birds’ nests; perhaps the predecessor of the Easter basket. This spring season, we celebrate Ostara who reminds us that after the dark comes the light, gifting renewal and rebirth along with it.

Our proprietary chocolate is crafted specifically to support the ingredients we infuse with it to achieve a taste experience matching the storytelling. Our 72% cacao dark chocolate is one of our most intense and has a deep roasted vegetation, dried fruit and a touch of tart berry notes. Our 45% cacao deep milk chocolate is a roasted cacao with a dense caramel profile that is achieved through the caramelization of roller dried, whole milk during the coaching process.

At the heart of our mission is creating luxury chocolate collections with responsibility to the environment that sustains our earth. We have been sourcing Fair Trade or Rainforest Alliance certified cacao for over 15 years. We are powered by 100% renewable energy and abide by a green purchasing of procuring only post consumer recycled board and biodegradable materials. Our kitchen exclusively uses Organic cream and sugar. 

For this spring’s collection I looked to an unlikely pairing: the goddess Ostara and my sons. On the surface they have little in common, but importantly there is one thing that they do. Ostara is credited with bringing the spring and my children, like most kids, have the necessary kind of innocent optimism that affirms their belief that light and good are always around the next corner. Our seasonal collections are an expression of this. They revel in the coming of spring; a time to revive our spirits, celebrate the renewal of the Earth and the importance of finding balance and wellness inside ourselves. I wanted this collection to appeal to those with a traveled palate, but equally to my boys' love of the classics. They love our toadstool shaped sugar cookie and white chocolate bombas, and what child wouldn’t love our creamy peanut butter version of filled chocolate chips. Within the pattern on the packaging, my son's drawings of a baby bunny and fawn appear, making this offering from our Chocolate Temple a true family affair. After a challenging year on our Earth, these are the kinds of gifts that Ostara brings raining in chocolate. In this burgeoning new season, I wish for your family’s joy, that your blessings will be abundant and that you are reminded of how life-affirming the dawn is.

Peace, Love, Light and Chocolate,
