Burke Mountain Confectionery Giveaway

Burke Mountain Confectionery has turned a life long hobby into a sweet new business venture for owners Tom and Nancy Taylor. The Taylors were living in Tennessee with their four children, though their hearts and dreams were in Vermont. Burke Mountain Confectionery officially started in March of 2012, though the Taylors gave themselves the following 18 months to develop and perfect their products.

Peppermint Bark is popular in my house around the holidays. Burke Mountain Confectionery is making this classic sweet all year. The combination of white and dark chocolate with candy peppermints is traditional, comforting, and very tasty!

Nancy and Tom are committed to using the best local ingredients and working with local producers. Nancy tells us: “We try to keep our ingredients simple and few to bring out the very best of flavors.  We don’t put any preservatives in our confections and we try to use as many local pure ingredients as possible in our products.” Their Eden Ice Cider Truffles are mildly sweet with a hint of apple.

I really (really really really) enjoyed the Sweet Maple Truffles. The combination of rich dark chocolate and sweet maple is delectable.  While I wanted my family to try these and share their review with me, I also wanted to keep the truffles all to myself. These are fairly large truffles, and with four in a package there are plenty to share.

Here is a bit more about Burke Mountain Confectionery from Nancy: Our chocolates are designed with the gift giver & receiver in mind, and we have been very intentional creating a product that reflects the true essence of Vermont.  Our best seller to date has been the dark chocolate Sweet Maple Truffle, however we have had huge success with preselling our brand new salted dark chocolate Maple Caramel Truffle made with Fat Toad Farm Farmstead Goat’s Milk Caramel this summer at various summer craft fairs and festivals.  We are super excited about this collaboration with Fat Toad Farm and expect this new product to be a huge hit!”
