Cookies with Triple Chocolate Taste

Consumer’s passion for chocolate chip cookies is legendary, and now Beth’s Fine Desserts has taken this craving to new heights with its Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies, loaded with bittersweet chocolate from Scharffen Berger, one of the nation’s most esteemed artisanal chocolatiers.

Like all Beth’s products, the cookies are made with all natural ingredients with no hydrogenated trans fat. But don’t let the naturalness fool you. The richness and intensity of the chocolate wallop in these babies is explosive. The cookies are dense with Scharffen Berger’s prized Bittersweet Chocolate Chunks, made entirely from cocoa beans, sugar, cocoa butter, whole vanilla beans, and less than .5 per cent soy emulsifier. The cookie’s body combines Scharffen Berger cocoa powder with Beth’s other natural ingredients to create a total chocolate experience.

“This year is our fifteenth anniversary in business, and I wanted to create a very special product to celebrate this milestone, said Beth Setrakian, founder, pastry chef, and president of the company. “I know Robert Armstrong and John Scharffenberger, whose chocolate has been earning worldwide raves for some dozen years. In conversation, it turned out that they believed our product standards matched theirs, so we were able to create the first product outside their own line carrying the Sharffen Berger name.”
