Hello Fellow Chocoholics!
As you may already know, I joined the direct-selling division of Dove Chocolates called Dove Chocolate Discoveries in July 2010. I've always loved sweets and have considered opening a sweets shop. However, knowing what I know now about brick and mortar (leases/advertising, etc.) I really didn't want to have that much responsibility (and risk) again. When I saw an ad for Dove Chocolate Discoveries, it really rang my bell! "This is GENIUS!" I already give away a dove chocolate to every spa guest; everyone knows the brand and loves it ... what a no-brainer!" AND, the "capital" needed for this new business: $150.00! Yep, that's it. Not the $150,000.00 (or more) I'd need for a retail shop.
I started having tasting parties at the spa, and from there a client wanted me to come to her home and have a party and bring Rhonda and the massage chair! I've posted the fun photos under Dove's page here on my site. We all had a BLAST!
With her party goers and a few people who wanted reorders, her sales were high enough that she got LOTS of Chocolate as her hostess gifts! And from me personally, to say "Thanks" I gave her a $20 GC to Vanities Spa!
If you would like to host a party, we can have one at your house, or at the spa! There is no fee for using the spa. If you'd like Rhonda and her massage talents, we have a very reasonable rate so that everyone in the party can relax and enjoy!

Dove Chocolate Recipes
I've played around with the VERY EASY mousse and instead of using the high-fat Heavy Cream, you can use low-fat Cool Whip! You still get the necessary peaks and texture, and it's still yummy!
The Chocolate Martini Mix is a crowd favorite. You can use regular vodka or a number of the new flavored vodkas. Raspberry & Chocolate are a sexy combo. Add Sprite for a fizzy cocktail!
When you get your Chocolate Martini Mix you might want to pour the contents into a blender and whiz it up to blend out any settled chocolate. Then pour it back into your Chocolate Martini Mix bottle and you're good to go!
