Say "reh-KYOO-tee"…as in "cutie" pie. You guessed right. It's Italian.
By the time your confections arrive to you or are purchased at our Ferry Building or Little Nib stores, they are at their peak freshness. Our products are best if consumed immediately as they do not include preservatives, artificial flavors, or compounds. If you will not be consuming them right away, please use the storage guidelines below for unopened confections. For best results, store confections at or just below room temperature in an odor-free environment. Refrigeration is not recommended. Storage outside these parameters will alter the guidelines below.
1 week: Brownies, Whoopie Cakes, Vanilla Bean Marshmallows, S'mores Bites, and S'mores Kits.
2 weeks: Pâtes de Fruits, and all Truffles.
2 months: Asphalt Jungle Mix, Burnt Caramel Almonds, Burnt Caramel Hazelnuts, Candied Orange Peel, Cherries Two Ways, Key Lime Apples, Key Lime Pears (seasonal item), Malted Revolutions, Cacao Nib & Fleur de Sel Mendiants (seasonal item), Peanut Butter Pearls (seasonal item), Peanut Butter Pucks, and Peppermint Thins.
3 months: Caramels (Fleur de Sel, Caramels to the Third Power).
10 months: Dark Hot Chocolate.
Our bars (Dark Milk, Semisweet, Bittersweet, Feve, Hazelnut [seasonal], Almond, Orchard, and Sesame Nougatine) and sauces (Extra-Bitter Chocolate, Burnt Caramel) have "Enjoy By" dates located on the packaging.
Serve Recchiuti Confections at room temperature. This brings out the full character and bouquet of each chocolate. We recommend pairing with still spring water.
The Vanilla Bean Marshmallows in the S'mores Kit are meringue-like and caramelize very quickly. To prevent burning, please watch the marshmallows closely; refrain from placing too close to the heat source if broiling. Enjoy!
There is foil on the jar labels which cannot be heated in the microwave. Additionally, repeated heating and cooling of the sauce is not advised. We recommend spooning the sauce into a microwavable bowl and heating only what you plan to serve.
We use unripened pears in the Key Lime box. Unlike apples, a ripe pear will dissolve in the key lime juice while soaking and prohibiting the best quality or yield to fulfill demand. Our Key Lime Apples are available for purchase all year.

All of our products are kosher except for S’mores Kit, S’mores Bites, and Marshmallows (which contain gelatin), but none of our products are certified kosher.
Our Bittersweet Bar is only 15% sugar and our Feve Bar is less than 15% sugar. However, we do not make anything that is sugar-free.
Our Bittersweet Bar, Feve Bar, Semisweet Bar, Orchard Bar, Almond Bar, Key Lime Apples, Key Lime Pears, Pâtes de Fruits, Burnt Caramel Almonds, Candied Orange Peel, Cherries Two Ways, Peppermint Thins, and Vanilla Bean Marshmallows are dairy-free. All dairy-free items are vegan-friendly with the exception of the Vanilla Bean Marshmallow.
Our Vanilla Bean Marshmallows, S'mores Bites, and Fudge Brownies contain eggs. Please contact us for additional ingredient information on baked good specials.
All our truffle and caramel products contain invert sugar (invert sugar is a stable sugar syrup made from sucrose that has been treated to break it down into its two simple sugars, glucose and fructose).
Our Burnt Caramel Almonds, Burnt Caramel Hazelnuts, Candied Hazelnuts, Piedmont Hazelnut truffle, and Asphalt Jungle Mix contain tree nuts. Our Peanut Butter Pucks, Peanut Butter Pearls, and Asphalt Jungle Mix contain peanuts. All products are made on the same machinery and may contain traces of soy, dairy, eggs, and nuts.
Our Dark Milk Malted Revolutions and Honeycomb Malt truffle contain malt.
Our gluten-containing products are: Dark Milk Malted Revolutions, Honeycomb Malt (all the other truffles are fair game!), Sundae Kits, Peanut Butter Pearls, Fudge Brownies, Dark Chocolate Graham Crackers, and S'mores Kits and Bites. All products are made on the same machinery and may contain traces of soy, dairy, eggs, and nuts. Please contact us for additional ingredient information on seasonal and monthly specials, including baked goods.
In general, our products do not contain alcohol, though a select few pieces do. Of these, the Star Anise Pink Peppercorn, Sur de Lago, Kona Coffee all contain about or less than 1% of alcohol in the finished piece, as most of it is cooked out. Our Champagne Truffle and Raspberry Truffle contain a slightly greater percentage of alcohol (less than 10%) in the finished products as it is added in later in the production process. Cheers!
Those are vanilla bean seeds from the whole vanilla bean pod.
We blend chocolate from E. Guittard, El Rey, and Valrhona to create our signature flavor profiles. You won’t taste chocolate like ours anywhere else!
All of our truffles and chocolate products contain soy lethicin, an emulsifier included in the bulk chocolate we use from our manufacturers. The items that do not contain soy are our Pâtes de Fruits and our Marshmallows. Please keep in mind that all products are made on the same machinery and may contain traces of soy, dairy, eggs, and nuts.
Due to the size of our business, our seasonal and monthly special products are exempt from FDA requirements for nutritional labeling. We are, however, in the process of lab testing and adding nutritional information to all of our products (to be completed towards the end of 2016). Please contact us for more information or with any specific questions.
This percentage indicates how sweet a chocolate is. Technically, it refers to the amount, by weight, of cacao bean plus cocoa butter in chocolate. The remaining weight is mostly sugar, so lower percentages = sweeter chocolate. We usually omit the percentage of cacao in our descriptions or packaging in favor of keeping the focus on the bar’s flavor profiles. Of course, we know how frequently this question is asked, so below you will find a listing of the percentage cacao content for all of our chocolate bars:
Bittersweet and Fève Bars: Our bittersweet chocolate blend with a cacao percentage in the high 70s
Semisweet, Orchard, Almond Bars: Our signature semisweet 64% chocolate
Dark Milk, Hazelnut, and Sesame Nougatine Bars: Our dark milk 55% chocolate
