Safe Crossings

  • About our Safe Crossings
    • Fran's Chocolates is proud to support Safe Crossings Foundation and donates 25% of sales for every Safe Crossings box sold.

      Safe Crossings Foundation's mission is to be a leader in supporting services that help grieving children heal. Their vision is that every grieving child receives the support needed for complete healing. Safe Crossings Foundation has supported grieving children by providing funding for Camp Erin King County, counseling for children and their parents, and training for educators and other health care professionals on the best ways to help children cope with the death of a loved one. Honor those you love and those who have lost a loved one with the sweetest of gifts.

  • Product Care
    • Our caramels are handcrafted in small batches with organic ingredients including fresh local cream and butter.

      For optimal freshness and flavor, please enjoy your caramels within 30 days.

      Store your caramels out of direct sunlight, in a cool, dry place between 54-68°F (12-20°C).

      To avoid blooming, please do not place your caramels 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 30 days.  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.
