Chocolate is a specialty for this blind entrepreneur, Joel Bernhard. He started making candy back in 1999, selling to friends and neighbors but as word spread about his delicious chocolates he needed more space, so he rented a local kitchen to make his truffles and other fine candies.
After a few more years he outgrew that space and decided to open his own shop in downtown Theresa. The building he chose was the old general store which is over 100 years old, with original tin ceilings and hardwood floors. After some renovations the store was opened in December of 2002.
Today Joel’s selection of gourmet chocolates has expanded to include Butter Almond Toffee to Sea Salt Caramels to his own creation called Berry Bogs and everything in between. He uses a Swiss Style chocolate, and only the finest Wisconsin butter, cream and nuts in his confections.
Another specialty that Confections offers is molded chocolates in over 1500 different shapes and designs. From seasonal to everyday, Baby to Wedding, Occupation to Fun shapes and many more. We are willing to make the chocolate in your colors and your quantities needed. If you are looking for a special design or shape we will order the mold of it is available.
We offer a full restaurant, Cedar Crest ice cream. We also carry a large selection of many fine Wisconsin products, Cheese, sausages, wine, jam and jellies, honey, maple syrup and much more.
We are proud members of Something Special from Wisconsin, Travel Wisconsin, Discover Dodge County.
