About Us

For the chocolate connoisseur, what makes these truffles so unusually fine are their uncommonly good ingredients – most centers are made with a delectable 56% cocoa content and the coating is a rich 70%. Creamy milk chocolate is also available for our most popular items – the salt caramel and – for the true Mainer – our distinctive Moxie truffles.

Dean’sSweets are hand-made and hand-dipped in Dean’sSweets’ 1,200-sqare-foot kitchen and retail store in Portland. Other flavors include Lemon-Apricot Chevre, using local goat cheese; Chocolate Stout truffles, blended with Allagash Black from Allagash Brewing; and Fox Family Maine Potato Chips, adding salt and crunch to milk-chocolate bars.

Dean’sSweets ships across the US or worldwide.
