At Branson’s Chocolates, everything is hand-made in small batches, from their Caramel to their Cayenne Truffles.
Branson's has many traditional items, like original Mackinac Island Fudge, along with their signature creations, like the Blackberry Truffles.
They regularly use local and natural products like their lavender and peppermint oils, and source ingredients like hazelnuts and macadamia nuts right from the grower.
Branson's also uses several locally distilled liqueurs. They proudly use high-quality Belgian chocolate.
Their chocolates are Gluten-Free, and they offer Dairy-Free and Sugar-Free options, and two intensities of dark chocolate--58% Semi-Sweet and 72% Bitter-Sweet.
They are becoming widely known for custom labeling their chocolates for local and national businesses, as well as local and personal events.
Come on in, buy some delicious chocolate, smell the caramel cooking, and watch them dip and wrap. Branson's is your go-to place for special occasions, gifts, and your “Everyday Indulgence”.
After graduating from Ashland High School, Deena Branson, Owner/Confectioner of Branson’s Chocolates, started working at Ashland Fudge Co. while going to night school to get her Business Management Diploma. During the 10 years at Ashland Fudge Co. Deena worked for 3 different owners and learned about chocolate business. In 2003 Deena left the chocolate world and worked in banking for a year and a half. Then her family dentist convinced her to leave banking and work at the front desk of his dental practice. November 2005 Kevin (Deena’s husband) came to her saying Ashland Fudge Co. closed at which time she began to realize her dream of owning her own business. The first 8 years were tough, working full-time as a server and also making chocolates and building the business.
November 2013, Branson’s Chocolates moved into their current location and Deena was able to make Branson’s Chocolates her only job.
