Dione (DEE-OWN) Costanzo is an emerging Chocolatier who is bringing delicious handmade and gourmet chocolates to the White Rock/Crescent Beach area. 

Dione is passionate about chocolate and produces small batch, hand crafted chocolates and truffles using the finest Belgian chocolate and fresh, local ingredients as much as possible. Her chocolates are produced in a local commercial kitchen and sold online and through select retail locations. 

Favourites from Dione’s signature line are her “Crescent Beach Truffles”, smooth caramel with sea salt rolled in dark Belgian chocolate and her Lemon Coconut Truffles. The bold flavours of fresh lemon with milk and dark chocolate wrapped in toasted coconut are a favourite.

Dione makes delicious hand crafted barks using unique and delicious flavour combinations such as milk chocolate with crystallized ginger or white chocolate with organic BC cranberries. 

Dione packages her chocolates in beautiful boxes with ribbon as gifts for special events and occasions such as weddings, birthdays and showers. Dione has created custom chocolates for special events using unique flavors for the occasion. Wine and chocolate are a match made in heaven and Dione pairs her specialty chocolates with wine at retail locations and special events. 

Dione is very active in the local and provincial autism community, and donates a portion of her sales to organizations that provide support and education for families dealing with autism.
