  • About our Joyful Heart
    • Fran's Chocolates is proud to support the Joyful Heart Foundation and donates 25% of proceeds for every Joyful Heart box sold.

      Inspired by her role on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, actress Mariska Hargitay founded the Joyful Heart Foundation in 2004 to help survivors heal and reclaim their lives. Since then, Joyful Heart has evolved into a national organization with offices in New York, Los Angeles and Honolulu. Joyful Heart’s mission is to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse, and to shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues. With your purchase, you help Joyful Heart Foundation turn toward these issues together, as a community, to bring about a day without violence and abuse.

  • Product Care
    • Our chocolates are handcrafted in small batches from all-natural and, when possible, local and organic ingredients.

      For optimal freshness and flavor, please enjoy your chocolates within 10 days.

      Store your chocolates in a cool, dry place between 64-68°F (14-16°C) and out of direct sunlight.

      To avoid blooming, please do not place your chocolates in the refrigerator.

      While we generally advise against refrigerating chocolates, there may be some instances like heat and humidity where refrigeration is the only way to maintain the integrity of your chocolates.  If you do need to store your confections in the refrigerator, we recommend protecting them by placing the box inside two airtight plastic bags, air removed and fully sealed.  Stored in this way, we recommend enjoying refrigerated confections within 1 month.  When enjoying refrigerated chocolates, we suggest keeping the box inside the two sealed plastic bags until the entire package comes to room temperature; this process will take approximately two hours.
