Temper Chocolate & Pastry new Halloween Treats, Fall-Themed Drinks and Desserts
The team at Temper Chocolate & Pastry are bundling up and celebrating the sweet flavours of fall at the popular European-inspired West Vancouver boutique and café by unveiling a new collection of decadent confections that will keep costumed kids and pumpkin fans alike smiling this season.
Created by Temper owner and lead chef Steven Hodge and his talented team of pastry chefs, Temper’s new creations include novelty tricks and treats to fill pillowcases on Halloween night and full-sized baked goods perfect to enjoy with the whole family at home or to make a splash at seasonal gatherings.
For Halloween, Temper’s signature lineup includes an array of milk and dark chocolate lollipops, bags of assorted, bite-sized ‘frictures’ in a variety of shapes and larger showpieces filled with delectable sweets that include:
Chocolate Pumpkin: a small hollow chocolate pumpkin available in milk or dark chocolate, airbrushed in bright orange with decorative edible foliage and filled with miniature chocolates ($35)
Halloween Frictures: a bag filled with assorted bite-sized chocolates in spooktacular ghost, tombstone and skull shapes (125g for $9)
Chocolate Lollipops: Available in milk or dark chocolate (sm $3.75, lg $5.50)
Throughout the autumn season, the Temper team will also be serving up a variety of fall-forward desserts and baked goods and specialty drinks that include: Pumpkin Scones ($4.50 ea); Pumpkin-Spiced Lattes (8oz, $4.75, 12oz, $5, 16oz, $5.25); a Pumpkin Cheesecake infused with pumpkin and fall spices over the top of a chocolate cookie crumble crust (individual $7.60 or 9” pie, serves 6-8, $39); and a traditional Pumpkin Pie, topped with light and airy Chantilly cream (9” pie, serves 6-8, $39).
Temper’s signature Halloween treats will be available exclusively for purchase in-store at the Dundarave neighbourhood patisserie from now until Sunday, October 31 or while quantities last. As this year’s Spooktacular confections are being handcrafted in limited supply, guests are encouraged to pick up their sweets for the trick-or-treat crowd early to avoid disappointment.
Temper is located at 2409 Marine Drive and is open for takeout orders and pickup on Tuesday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sundays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information about Temper Chocolate & Pastry, visit temperpastry.com.
