All of our creams are butter creams. We make our own fondant in our
biggest kettle and beat in exactly three pounds of real butter per batch
for extra yumminess (our grandfather and dad’s original recipe calls
for two pounds of butter, but we think they were probably too cheap, God
love them, to add more). We buy top-of-the line, organic flavorings
whenever possible to make these old-fashioned, quality confections.
Each cream is hand-rolled and -dipped in luscious milk, dark, or white
chocolate. And, yes, we will consider special requests, such as a
unique flavor or a particular chocolate not normally used if you give us
some extra time and tell us how great we are.
The following flavors are the ones we have in the cases 99.9% of the time:
If you have been with us since 2004, you can see that we have greatly
expanded our butter cream repertoire. For the past few years we have
also produced seasonal creams—pumpkin, egg nog, peppermint/chocolate
twists, cherry, fruit and nut, pistachio, fig, hazelnut, and one or two
we may be forgetting. Again, special orders are possible.
Pieces vary according to availability, but 99.9% of the time you will find a delicious combination of the following……
Butter creams dipped in milk, dark or white chocolate. Discover some
of the following, old-fashioned flavors: vanilla, chocolate, coffee,
raspberry, strawberry, lemon, orange, maple, amaretto, and some
seasonally fun ones, too.
Our deluxe assortment also sports Paul’s Pecan Favorites, apricots,
raisins, almond clusters, cashew clusters, coconut clusters and
delights. Look for caramels, honey-salted caramels, nougat, and our
amazing peanut butter pudding.
Nougat is like taffy but a titch harder, and the honey walnut flavor is subtle – just right. Ours has earned the approval of many extremely mature adults in Douglas County, Illinois, so we feel confident that you’ll like it, too. Dipped in milk or dark chocolate.
Nothing like some dark chocolate and refreshing mint together. These will quickly become your favorite, anytime of the year.
