Kindred Chocolates is the product of creativity, hard work, and experience working in high-end pastry departments. Based out of a 1900’s family farmhouse in the countryside, Emily Watson produces colourful chocolate bonbons, all in pattern-wrapped 6-piece boxes. The flavours and colours rotate with the holidays, as well as the exterior patterned sleeve. Each bonbon is filled with creamy, soft ganache, contained in a crisp dark chocolate shell. Some contain only ganache, some contain add-ins like nuts, crumbles and jams.
Kindred Chocolates also makes many different pastries: croissants, filled croissants, cookies, bars, and other seasonal treats! All available at the Orillia Library Farmer's Market year round!

A bonbon is a chocolate made in a molded shape, filled with ganache or caramel, and sealed shut! The goal is to have a crisp chocolate shell, with a delicious, creamy filling.

Welcome! I'm the creator of Kindred Chocolates, Emily Watson. For my entire life, I knew that my future involved food. I had always helped my Dad in the garden, my Mom with baking, loved helping with Grandma’s sweets, and worked in a kitchen for a summer job. I completed a BFA at OCADU, with a focus on food photography, and at the same time attended George Brown for Culinary. I moved on to work in some of the best pastry kitchens in Toronto, learning southern pies, french pastry, italian goods and finally: chocolate! I like to think I have a pretty well rounded education from many avenues, and important mentors. From helping my co-workers in dishpit, to refining menus: I quite literally have done it all. I can’t wait to bring all I have learned to my hometown community and provide the best treats possible.
