I have been reflecting a lot this month about the people I have met throughout my blogging adventures. Since I began my blog in April of 2010, I had no idea that it would unite me with such amazing and talented individuals who are truly passionate about their work. One person who always comes to mind is the beautiful Victoria Boyko Fulwood, owner and chocolatier at Viktoria Richards Chocolates in New Port Richey. I met Victoria at a chocolate festival in January of 2011 and was excited to meet her after sampling her beautiful chocolates at Cru Cellars in South Tampa. After tasting her gorgeous creations that come so beautifully wrapped, I knew I had to meet this local entrepreneur. She was everything I imagined and I am honored to know her. We both share a love of shoes and chocolate. 🙂
Imagine something so beautiful that you almost do not want to eat it. That is what I felt when I first opened a little pink box of bliss from Viktoria Richards Chocolates. Each piece is like a stunning piece of chocolate art and the flavors are just as spectacular. Each piece is made with only the finest and freshest ingredients.
Her artisanal chocolate line includes flavors such as: P. B. Pretzel Caramel, Morello Cherry Caramel, Mojito, Cinnamon, Key Lime, Florida Blueberry Wine, Pumpkin Orange Caramel, Peanut Butter, Fleur de Sel, Champagne Heart, and many more. As you bite into one of her chocolates, you will suddenly feel like you are in a beautiful European city. Her chocolates remind me of fashion as well as photography because not only are they dressed to the nines, you can’t help but photograph the gorgeous piece of “haute” chocolate that will captivate all of your senses.
Viktoria Richards Chocolates are known for their seasonal offerings such as their current “Florida Egg Nog” which is a milk chocolate ganache with egg nog, spices, and T&W Orangela liqueur by Empire Distillery in a dark chocolate shell. Their beautiful boutique is located at 6334 Rowan Rd. in New Port Richey and they offer a beautiful array of chocolates including signature bars, chocolate tiles, truffles and more. Chocolate can be custom made for any occasion. If you are looking for the perfect gift for the chocolate lover in your life, look no further than Viktoria Richards Chocolates. In addition to their boutique, you can find them at other retail locations by clicking here. You can also order online.
