Local chocolate company preps for Valentine's Day

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - For Sugar Love Chocolates, making sweets is an art and science.

Krysta Bea Jackson is the founder of Sugar Love Chocolates.

"My family and I cook to show affection, that's why we came up with the name sugar love," said Jackson. "So the idea is the love we put into the food is what you're giving the person that's receiving it."

They are hard at work at making some tasty creations for the sweetest time of the year.

"We're definitely planning ahead of time, so we want to be able to serve everyone who's looking for fine chocolates," said event coordinator Katie Dolan.

It all comes down to the texture, design and taste to create the best chocolate.

"We get ten cases of 10 kilo chocolate at a time so that 22 pounds and we get 66 pounds today," added Jackson. "We'll be done with it by the end of the weekend."

It's not an easy task, but the local company makes over 100 batches made in the kitchen...most of that time is just waiting for the chocolate to be ready.

"So we have to make a shell first and then we pipe the interior," explained Jackson. "The interior has to sit anywhere from 2 to 12 hours and then we cap it. Then it's finally ready."

From boxing to packing, Jackson said every order is made with love.

"Our entire process is love filled," added Jackson. "Our chocolates are made with love and you're giving it to someone you love on a special day.
