Jennifer on right (Hedonist Artisan Chocolates) and her partner Madelyn (Posey Letterpress)


Hedonist Artisan Chocolates was founded by California native Jennifer Posey.  After moving to Rochester in 2005 the former Parks & Rec. Director decided to go back to her roots and delve into the delicious world of chocolate.  

Jennifer worked for famous Santa Cruz chocolatier Richard Donnelly.  Working as his "minion" she learned everything she could about the world of fine chocolate while studying for her degree in Recreation & Leisure Studies.  

In 2007 Jennifer and then partner Zahra Langford started Hedonist Artisan Chocolates.  They focused on using fresh local ingredients whenever possible and using the finest quality chocolate in the industry.  

In 2013 Hedonist Artisan Chocolates was featured on the front cover of the New York Times for the BEST Salted Caramel in the country.  

Just over 10 years since it's inception Jennifer continues to create delicious unique flavors, using the best local ingredients and still keeping things handmade in small batches.  Hedonist has now expanded to include Hedonist Artisan Ice Cream, and Posey Letterpress.
