Who doesn't love chocolate? I am here today to tell you about Mrs. Cavanaugh's home-fashioned chocolates.
Time was when Marie Cavanaugh spent hours in her South Dakota farmhouse each Christmas season making pecan rolls and homemade chocolates for holiday gifting.
“It started when my aunt sent her pecan-rolls recipe,” Mrs. Cavanaugh recalled. “I gave the recipe my own touch and started making the yummy specialties. Then I began dipping chocolates. Our friends and neighbors loved these treats, encouraging me to start a candy business. Finally, I decided it might be a good idea.'”
Her husband George and children Carla, Lorraine, Calvin, Colene and Genise rallied, helping Mrs. Cavanaugh fill demands for her homemade sweets.
…In 1972, the family moved to Utah, leaving good friends and their beloved cattle ranch.
“It was a difficult decision, especially for George,” Mrs. Cavanaugh said. “He was excited about making our new venture, which we chose to call Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Candies, a great success. We felt Utah was blessed with good chocolates and that we would enjoy – and could compete with – those who pride themselves on making excellent chocolates.”
Millions of pounds of chocolates later, Mrs. Cavanaugh’s candies have earned a reputation for unquestionable excellence….

Now I just know your mouth is watering for these chocolates! From chocolate covered almonds to raspberry cream and more. I promise you there wasn't one flavor left behind!! One of my favorites was the chocolate covered cherries!!
My son loved the raspberry cream ones. He said they just melted in his mouth and the cream was soooo creamy. He said it just melted away!
My daughter loved the haystack!
I would definitely order some of Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Chocolates again! They even have sugarless chocolates!! That is perfect for my husband who needs to watch his sugar.
