At Rockhead Chocolates we use fine couverture chocolate from Guittard and Cacao Barry. Located in San Francisco, the Guittard family have been making chocolate since 1868. In addition to creating superior chocolate, we admire their ethical and compassionate business model. By building strong, supportive relationships with the cocoa farmers, they are able to sustain a top-quality product while advancing agroforesty, health, and gender equality initiatives.
Cacao Barry was founded in France and began producing chocolate in 1911. In 1996, they merged with Belgian chocolate producer Callebaut and are among the largest producers of gourmet chocolate in the world.
What We Do
Rockhead chocolates makes all their chocolates by hand in small batches. Our caramels are very popular. Ooey, gooey, soft, and chewy, they come in a variety of traditional favorites and there are plans to expand the caramel line.
Romantic and whimsical are common themes in the molded chocolates. You can see examples of our work in our catalogue and by checking out options for custom orders. Offerings are often seasonal and therefore the available items will change periodically.
Quality and consistency are paramount, and we pride ourselves in delivering on that promise. Even so - because no machination or automation is used - slight variations should be expected.
Meet the Chocolatiers
Elizabeth Poussier is the founder and President of Rockhead Chocolates. Beth, as she is known, is a retired nurse who married a French pastry chef (yup, it’s a good thing). Over the past twelve years, Beth has been learning the art by making chocolates for family and friends alongside her husband, Jean-Marc.
Jean-Marc Poussier is the chief chocolatier at Rockhead Chocolates. He hails from Paris where he was trained and worked as a pastry chef. He made his way to Massachusetts almost 30 years ago when a colleague recruited him to come work as a pastry chef at French Memories in Duxbury, MA. Although no longer working as a pastry chef, he still delights his family and friends with his skills and his winning personality.
