About Dean's Sweets

Dean Bingham of Dean’sSweets began his truffle-making career years ago as a somewhat casual, somewhat serious sideline. As an accomplished architect for decades, his fine sense of aesthetics and high standards made truffle-making an irresistible pursuit. With the art of chocolate-making, Dean applies his design talents in the selection of the highest quality ingredients. And because each is hand-dipped, he creates a unique piece of art with each truffle, always attentive to proportion, texture, hue, and above all, taste. From the very beginning, Dean witnessed a consistent pattern of "wow" and delight whenever anyone bit into one of his truffles.

 

Encouraged by these fans of chocolate, Dean'sSweets officially opened for business in 2004. Though the business is more “serious” now, the truffles haven’t changed – they are still individually hand-dipped and exceptional!

 

The list of possible flavors is always expanding. Favorites get repeated, of course, but Dean’s formulation changes with friends’ and consumer comments and requests. Please check back for new chocolate creations always being added. 

 

With many friends who are severely nut-allergic, Dean has chosen to offer only nut-free flavors. If you are similarly nut-allergic, you can safely enjoy his truffles.
