Valenza Chocolatier Holiday Pop-Up Shop


Valenza Chocolatier celebrates its 6th annual Holiday Pop-Up Shop at the Hood Kitchen in Costa Mesa on Tuesday, Dec. 18 through Wednesday, Dec. 19 from noon to 7 p.m.

Make your holiday gifting season memorable with Valenza Chocolatier’s Holiday Collection. Each chocolate or confection has its own unique Italian history while capturing the holiday spirit with ingredients such as amaretto, cinnamon, clove, candied orange peel, hazelnuts, limoncello, pecans, nutmeg, and more. It’s the perfect gift for a holiday party host/hostess or stocking stuffer for the ultimate chocolate lover.

“Being half Sicilian (Valenza is my maiden name), I grew up making an assortment of Sicilian cookies from 100+ year old family recipes as well as my Mother’s turtles and chocolate covered cherries each Christmas.  My inspiration for Valenza Chocolatier®’s Holiday Collection is to pay homage to my heritage, family holiday traditions, and studies in Torino and Lecco, Italy," Amy Jo said.

To view the 2018 Holiday Collection, visit here.

Valenza Chocolatier at The Hood Kitchen Space is at 350 Clinton Street, Suite A in Costa Mesa.
