Our Story

ABOUT OUR TRUFFLES

Ever gazed longingly at a dessert menu and wished you could order everything on it from the chocolate cake, to the red velvet cupcake, to the cookies? We’ve built upon this whim and created mini desserts inside our chocolate truffles, neatly packed into a single box. Often called too pretty to eat, our mini confections are as delicious as they are lovely to look at. Many months perfecting how we’d transform our preservative-free and made by hand favorite cakes, candies, bars, and more into bite-sized treats gets us excited about celebrating your every occasion, decadent indulgence, and special gift. Even better, truffles ship nationwide and are available for custom orders!

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

Well, for us, a lot of love. When we sat down with a batch of our truffles, we realized they contain more than just flavor; they're filled with personality. Inspired by their look, their taste, and some of our best friends, we decided to give our truffles names they could be proud of. When you enjoy a truffle, we want you to remember the experience, like when you first met your best friend. Or when your roommate surprised you with flowers. Or when your partner-in-crime came through for you ... again. We hope you love meeting – er, eating – them all.

MELANIE MOSS

FOUNDER & PASTRY CHEF

Melanie grew up baking with her Viennese grandmother. The very first recipe they baked together is the same vanilla cake that we bake in the Mini Melanie kitchen today. Amidst a big family that spent their whole weekends cooking and thinking about what’s for dinner, Melanie found her calling in the cabinet housing rolling pins and cookie cutters. A hobby grew into an obsession and while attending Northwestern University, Melanie traveled to Paris and worked in her first professional kitchen. She went on to attend the Institute of Culinary Education and then honed her craft in the Michelin starred kitchens of Babbo and Blue Hill at Stone Barns, where she was Head Baker and Pastry Sous Chef. For Melanie, baking is her biggest passion alongside the Mini Melanie team, spreading the mini love!
