One of the people who make a difference at Choclatique

VictorHappy birthday, Vic! Victor is our utility infield chocolatier. He’s worked with Choclatique for two years. He started as an assistant, but soon took over the making of all our sugared products like brittles and Pralinated Nuts and Chocolate Nibs. Vic has perfected the art of making my great grandfather’s famous Peanut-packed Peanut Brittle, Chocolate Covered Peanut Brittle, and my grandmother’s Chocolate Almond Butter Toffee. He also makes the other varieties of crunch nut brittles.

Choclatique ChickBut Vic’s talent doesn’t stop there. He is responsible for giving all of our Chicks their unique personalities. Each Chick is hand-decorated and Vic has the steady hand to add the eyes and beaks to each bird. Every Chick is a miniature masterpiece. Decorating a molded piece of Choclatique chocolate starts by painting molds with the desired design inside-out and up-side down. It takes a steady hand and a lot of patience. When you look at the detail, you have to admire how much goes into just a single Chocolate Chick.

In Vic’s non-working hours he coaches his son, Victor Jr. III’s, football team in West Los Angeles. He also tries to work out when he’s got the chance and build model cars with his son.

Vic was one of our top tasters when we were developing the recipes for Choclatique—150 Simply Elegant Desserts.
