Riverside-IL based Chocolate Twist recently unveiled its Luscious Gooey Brownie Treat - LGBT Bar in support of their friends at Youth Outlook. This to-swoon-for-bar contains a layer of epic sea salt caramel, topped with gooey brownie, and dipped in dark chocolate. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the LGBT will be donated to Youth Outlook, the first social service agency in Illinois solely dedicated to the support of LGBTQ+ youth. Youth Outlook works in six counties in the Chicago suburbs, offering drop-in centers for youth, parent support, and community education.
Launched in 2011, Chocolate Twist has its roots in founder Kate Coffey’s childhood. Captivated by both of her grandmothers’ love of cooking and baking, Kate knew what she wanted to do with her life from a very early age. Watching her beloved grandmothers carry on conversations, laugh with family, enjoy a little wine and never break a sweat, Kate was hooked. And hungry. Kate received her Baking and Pastry Certificate at Kendall College, Chicago. After several years of work in the food and non-profit sectors, Kate finally decided to listen to her heart. Named for Kate’s favorite ingredient and a nod to the meandering streets of her hometown, Riverside, Illinois, Chocolate Twist was born.
