Joyful Heart Gifts

Box and Ribbon Colors

  • About our Joyful Heart Gifts
    • Inspired by her role on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, actress Mariska Hargitay founded the Joyful Heart Foundation in 2004 to help survivors heal and reclaim their lives. Since then, Joyful Heart has evolved into a national organization with offices in New York, Los Angeles and Honolulu. Joyful Heart’s mission is to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse, and to shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues. With your purchase you help Joyful Heart turn towards these issues together, as a community, to bring about a day without violence and abuse. Fran's Chocolates will be donating 25% of proceeds to the Joyful Heart Foundation for every box sold. To learn more, please visit

  • Product Care
    • Our caramels are handcrafted in small batches with organic ingredients including fresh local cream and butter.

      For optimal freshness and flavor, please enjoy your caramels within 1 month.

      Store your caramels in a cool, dry place between 64-68°F (14-16°C) and out of direct sunlight.

      To avoid blooming, please do not place your caramels in the refrigerator.

      While we generally advise against refrigerating chocolates, there may be some instances like heat and humidity where refrigeration is the only way to maintain the integrity of your chocolates.  If you do need to store your confections in the refrigerator, we recommend protecting them by placing the box inside two airtight plastic bags, air removed and fully sealed.  Stored in this way, we recommend enjoying refrigerated confections within 1 month.  When enjoying refrigerated chocolates, we suggest keeping the box inside the two sealed plastic bags until the entire package comes to room temperature; this process will take approximately two hours.
