PRESENTATION

FOUNDED IN 2007 BY OWNER AND CHOCOLATIER, JULIE WATERMAN

Indulgence Chocolatiers meticulously handcrafts all of its confections in its Milwaukee, Wisconsin kitchen. Working with the finest chocolate from around the world and other locally sourced ingredients, our talented chocolatiers create confections that are as delicious as they are beautiful. No mass production, no artificial preservatives, just quality ingredients handcrafted into artisan confections in both classic and unique flavor combinations.

While in college studying music education, Julie took a backpacking trip through Europe that changed the direction of her professional ambitions. Struck by the quality and presentation of the chocolates she found abroad, Julie returned home with the idea of offering Milwaukee an upscale alternative to traditional old-fashioned candy shops. In 2007, she opened Indulgence as its only employee. Today, with three retail shops, and distribution of its confections to hundreds of other businesses, Indulgence allows Julie to share her passion for handcrafted chocolate with others.

THE INDULGENCE CHOCOLATIERS DIFFERENCE

At Indulgence, it’s all about the quality of the chocolate. Confections made with the finest chocolate have always been, and always will be, our primary focus. It starts by selecting the best blended bean and single origin chocolate from producers around the world who share our commitment to environmental sustainability and fairness to people at every level of the process. Our talented chocolatiers then use their creativity and technical skills to transform that chocolate, along with other high quality ingredients, into beautiful and delicious confections. Whether it’s a classic flavor combination that brings you back to your childhood, or an innovative new combination of flavors that you may never have imagined, our focus is always on letting the quality chocolate shine through. 

Sure, it would be easy to use cheaper chocolate. We could use less expensive fillings or overpowering flavors that mask the quality of an inferior chocolate, but that’s just not who we are. The chocolate comes first. Additionally, we are not about doing unusual for the sake of unusual. In other words, while we’re known for creating confections with unique flavor combinations, we are not interested in making something for shock value that you’ll likely try once and probably never want again. Instead, at Indulgence, there is thoughtful reasoning and consideration behind every confection that we craft. We believe that by honoring the quality chocolate used in our confections, we show respect and gratitude to all who choose to purchase and enjoy them.
