"Are you checking the temp with a thermometer too? It almost sounds like some kind of moisture is getting into it. You can also try using a very small amount of cocoa butter to thin it. I have heard that the temp control on the Rev 2 is not…"

Chocolate Box

"Hi Raymond: Yes, these are too expensive for a mass market. It was only for a small wedding as a gift to the bride. They were hard to put together too. Not a good choice for a business."

"Hi Jennifer: Those are from Nashville Wraps. I think if you want to buy a bunch of them you can apply for a wholesale license. I paid retail at $2.00 each. I only needed 20. Thanks for the SCORE tip. I don't know why I didn't think of…"

Hi Gail,

I am a member of Start-up Central and received your email. I definitely recommend checking out the SCORE office in your neighborhood. SCORE is a non-profit that partners with the SBA to pair new business owners with mentors who are retired from their field. It has been a wonderful (free!) resource -- I've met regularly for months with a great mentor from the food industry to research, write and finalize a business plan (including profitability) and have been working with another mentor to set up my accounting. I can't recommend the program enough!

Profitability will greatly depend on your market area, so it's best to go through the motions of writing a business plan. By the end of the process, you'll know whether it makes sense to move forward.

Good luck! Jenny

Hi, Gail ~ It took me forever to find this message from you. I think TCL needs a redo to make it more intuitive and user friendly.

Anyway, I am a photographer who also does Hypnotherapy. I am more than ready for a transition to something else and the Chocolate "thing" just sort of happened along the way. I am loving it. It melds my love of creativity with food and sweets and science!

I graduated from Ecole in July and am spending this next year doing my R&D. I'm hoping to intern or work at a chocolate shop somewhere here in my area. Haven't gotten the courage up to actually apply but will probably get to it in a week or two. Let me know how you are doing in the process.

And, I'm happy to be your chocolate friend. I know exactly what you mean.
