Love is the central part of the Ghyslain Chocolatier story. It was the love of a man for his wife and her hometown and his love of quality and beauty in his craft that gave the story its start, but love continues to propel the art and flavor of every product Ghyslain shares with the world.
Once Upon a Time
Ghyslain Maurais first found his culinary passion in Quebec while working in the field to fund his architectural education. It wasn’t long before he left architecture behind and was certified in French pastry, chocolate décor, candy making, blown/pulled sugar, and bread making and working as an executive chef in first class restaurants and hotels. But when he met his wife, Susan, his passions took a new path to Union City, Indiana where he started Ghyslain Chocolatier.
Using painting techniques he learned for chocolate sculptures, Ghyslain crafted the first hand-painted chocolate truffles that have now become synonymous with the brand. To this day, the same handmade techniques are used to create each and every product in Ghyslain’s Union City kitchen.
This Valentine’s Day, why not enhance your menu with products that have a true love story behind every bite?

The perfect end to any meal is a little bite of something sweet, like a kiss to end the night.

Elegant Ends with French Macarons
Ghyslain’s carefully hand-crafted macarons provide a welcome splash of color to end any elegant meal. Once a treat enjoyed only by royalty (Marie Antoinette may come to mind), this dessert is now embraced as a way for anyone to elevate a dining experience. Light and delicate, each flavored macaron is filled with a delectable gourmet ganache. Ghyslain’s collection includes classic and Couleur Vive options, all embodying artistic ethos in both color and flavor. Arrange these macarons in a variety of ways, from traditional towers to heart-shaped formations, or present them individually. The romance and elegance of the French macaron make them statement pieces on any dessert table.
