Hi, when will palm syrup be available?

Hi Will,
We’re currently sold out, as our team has been super busy making chocolate for the holidays… We may bring it back as a monthly special in the near future. We’ll send an e-mail out if/ when it’s available.
You can sub honey or maple syrup in the recipe and it will still taste great!

I love these
Made them so many times tried & true easy recipe.
I’ve added a tiny bit of cayenne & a lot of cardamom to the mix then rolled in candied rose petals a hit every time.
Thanks for the reminder to make them for valentine’s day ? fun gift to share.
