Why isn't there a dairy-free Sun Cup?
We started Seth Ellis Chocolatier to create amazing, premium chocolates. We knew we could build a successful high-end chocolate company within the limits of organic, nut-free and gluten-free production. We chose to be organic because it's the right thing to do, gluten-free because Rick's wife and kids are gluten-allergic, and nut-free because we have some friends with serious nut allergies. We didn't anticipate we'd be in a situation where dairy-free was required, as well! And, building a luxury chocolate business to compete with the best European chocolatiers without cream for ganaches or milk chocolate strained even our fertile imaginations.

Fast forward three years to 2009, and the launch of Sun Cups.

We have milk in our shop. We use organic heavy cream in our ganache and caramel, we have an exquisite milk chocolate and we use white chocolate here and there for fillings and decoration. When we created the filling recipe for Sun Cups, we used some white chocolate, made with whole milk powder. We're using a blend of white chocolate and cocoa butter because using only cocoa butter is cost prohibitive. We're trying to keep ingredient costs down, both to keep the cups affordable and to make sure we can afford to make them!

Unfortunately, the issue we face in creating a dairy-free dark chocolate Sun Cup is larger than just eliminating the milk products from the filling. In our shop, we don't have separate machinery for dark and milk chocolate. Although we're careful to minimize contamination between milk and dark chocolate, we do have small amounts of milk getting into the dark chocolate. As we grow we will definitely keep the needs of those with dairy allergies in our focus. As the dairy-free market grows we'll continue to explore ways to create a dairy-free Sun Cup.

EXCELLENT!!! March 30, 2012
Reviewer: Judy Beall from Ashburn, VA United States  
Thank you so much for making these!!! My daughter has life-threatening allergies to peanuts and all tree nuts and coconut. This was her very first "peanut butter cup"- they are absolutely delicious!!!

The rich chocolate exterior gives way with a perfectly tempered snap to a creamy Sunbutter center- the slightly salty edge to the Sunbutter is the perfect pairing with the dark chocolate. They look just like the ubiquitous Reese's cups, right down to the dark wrappers.

I cannot thank you enough for making these. This was a truly special gift.
