Growing up in Chicago, no family event would be complete without bringing along a box of Fannie May Chocolates. My aunt, Bertha Schulman, and my mother, Esther Schulman, always entertained with Fannie May and I became a very big fan of the dark chocolate vanilla buttercreams.

For that reason, it was very exciting for us to approached this year by the management team at Fannie May with a challenge if we could create an exceptional line of cheesecakes for Fannie May that would be available exclusively at their 60 Chicago area stores. and online. We worked very hard over several months and were delighted to debut the five cheesecakes with Fannie May Confection Brands CEO, David Taiclet, at the Fannie May Flagship Store on Michigan Avenue this week.
