Expertly crafted and uniquely designed milk chocolate shell is infused with a silky butterscotch center

KOHLER, Wis. – June 26, 2017KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates is thrilled to announce the addition of Butterscotch Hop to its revered collection of gourmet chocolates. This confection is comprised of a smooth, creamy butterscotch filling surrounded by a custom blend of premium chocolate, bringing diversity to the chocolate line in its distinct design and flavor profile.

“Introducing new varieties that exceed our fans expectations and match the quality of our existing chocolate collections is a key priority for us,” said Anette Righi DeFendi, Head Chocolatier, KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates. “We worked meticulously to find the perfect balance between the butterscotch filling and the chocolate shell – the result is a nostalgic, bite-size piece that takes the old-fashioned flavor to a whole new level.”

The asymmetrically shaped gem of perfection is architectural in its angular design. The butterscotch notes evident in the first bite are complemented by the shimmering golden tones thoughtfully airbrushed by hand on the exterior shell.

Each chocolate variety in the KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates collection fuse together classic culinary techniques, art and design, and are fastidiously created – from concept to execution – in the quaint Village of Kohler at Destination Kohler, the Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond resort-hotel, owned and operated by Kohler Co. Butterscotch Hop will be available in 4-piece ($9.99), 9-piece ($19.99) and 32-piece ($59.99) boxes, online at KohlerChocolates.com and at the Craverie Chocolatier Café at The Shops at Woodlake in Kohler.


History of KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates

The KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates story begins with turtles, and not just an ordinary turtle – a complex blend of chocolate; smoky, burnt caramel and finished with salted pecans hand-picked for their size and perfection. The turtle that went through rigorous testing, many recipe tweaks and extensive sampling was perfected by the renowned chefs at Destination Kohler and blessed by Kohler Co. Executive Chairman, Herbert V. Kohler, Jr., to launch KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates in 2007.

Today, the original Terrapins have become the foundation for a thriving chocolates business that refuses to clutter the marketplace, and seeks to explore limitless opportunity in taste with natural raw ingredients. The Terrapins have since been expanded into four delicious varieties and the company has continued to diversify its line of chocolates.

In 2016, Kohler Co. entered a new market with the launch of the KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates Brandy; the spirit is naturally infused with Kohler’s dark chocolate, providing an unmatched spirits taste and experience.
