Featured chocolatier: Kathy Blankenbiller

“I’m not a professional chocolatier,” Kathy insists. But she has been working with chocolate for over 35 years making delicious chocolate goodies and creating stunning edible chocolate scenes. Her use of chocolate as a medium for her artistic creations would rival anyone who claims to be a “professional chocolatier!” She enjoys sharing her secrets of her chocolate passion with kids of all ages.

Kathy, proud to be a part of the Cargill Cocoa and Chocolate Wilbur Chocolate staff, loves to create a very kid-friendly display that includes candy pieces that are “not only a feast for the tummy but a feast for the eyes as well.” This year she has created an edible, rotating carousel! Kathy is also a published author; her book, titled “Lititz,” made its debut in 2009.
