Our story begins with a passion for chocolate. It continues with a vision of a small town in rural America finding itself in the infancy stages of a commerce explosion. After years in the media industry in New York's Capital Region, Deb Morris and her husband Jim decided it was time to turn passion and vision into a reality. Deb studied under chocolatiers & pastry chefs and began to create artisan truffles with wholesome ingredients and unique flavors, while Jim tackled the business plan. After each batch of truffles, Deb & Jim would discreetly place them on tables at gatherings and parties to gauge the guests' reactions. You can imagine the results. And so Barkeater Chocolates was born.
What's in a name? Barkeater, a Mohawk Indian term, is named after the mountains they belong to. Nestled in the heart of the Adirondacks in North Creek, NY - near the base of Gore Mountain ski area, mouth-watering gourmet chocolate truffles are handmade in small batches in a variety of explosive flavors.
