Welcome to our Kitchen
This is where it all began.
Our products are made in small batches, by hand, with the best ingredients.
We source premium chocolates from around the world. We make the vanilla and brown sugar mixture that goes into our sauces from scratch.
You will never find anything artificial in our kitchen!
Meet the Maker
I’m Audrey Scherrer, the owner and chocolatier behind Bittersweet Kitchen. My love affair with food started long ago in my mom and grandma’s kitchen. I’ve always believed a good cook is like a magical sorceress who dispenses happiness. Naturally, I wanted to be a magical sorceress too. And so, my journey began…
“It’s summertime and that means our family eats more ice cream. The Bittersweet Kitchen sauces are our favorite - particularly the chocolate salted caramel sauce! Bittersweet sauces are a great way to dress up a simple dessert.”
— LINDSEY P.
“Bittersweet Kitchen's sauces are total game changers! As a stay-at-home mom who likes to entertain - often at the last minute - these sauces step up any dessert, even with minimal effort. I love the versatility of flavors that can be used on top of brownies and ice cream, simply used as a dip for pretzels and apples or incorporated into a larger baking recipe. Knowing Audrey, it comes as no surprise that her creations are delicious as she puts passion, love and good taste into everything she creates.”
— KATE S.
“Absolute perfection! This chili chocolate needs a warning label. Not because of the heat, but because I could eat the entire jar in one sitting.”

“Bittersweet is my go'-to choice for kids parties and baby showers! You can’t go wrong with their Truffles, brownies, or cake pops all delicious and sure to impress. Good chocolate is one of life’s best indulgences. And bittersweet is the most amazing chocolate and ingredients! Audrey and the team worked with me to come up with just the right treats! Bittersweet is amazing for dessert or party favors or just because. I appreciate that it’s real ingredients, and most importantly it tastes amazing every time.”
