Ah, fall is here again. You may still be missing those long summer days and mornings without jackets or socks, but here at the Theo factory, we can't help but smile when the leaves start to turn their various burnished hues and the air becomes crisp as an apple. Why? Because fall begins the most romantic time of year: a time for sharing warmth around the fireplace, for giving gifts, for remembering the important people in your life, and for eating chocolate. Don't get us wrong, we eat chocolate daily, year round, come rain or come shine. But winter is when chocolate really shines as a treat to savor by oneself and as a gift to give. In our work as chocolate makers, we are happy and humbled to take part in the creation of special shared moments during these colder months. It is still dark now when many of us arrive at the factory in the morning, but the hum of activity is more vibrant than ever as we prepare the chocolate bars and confections that we hope will be part of warm memories-to-be for those who enjoy them. What better time to share some Theo love with the dear ones in your life?
We love Seattle in the fall, and if we could, we would send you a basket of these chocolate chip scones. We recommend baking up a batch (or two) for yourself, your family, your colleagues, your friends. They're just the thing to carry you out into these chilly mornings—to work, to school, wherever the day may take you—with a smile.
