About Chocolate Babies

Chocolate Babies Gourmet Chocolate Treats,  was started by professional photographic artist and educator, Joan Rudder-Ward, MBA, CPP, as a way to support community programs that she hosts for girls and young women, as many she works with are disadvantaged.

Her banner program, Photography with Purpose, features photography workshops that help girls build self-confidence, positive self-esteem, and develop leadership skills--while they learn new photography skills.  Joan has received regional and national recognition for her community service work in this area.

Gourmet dessert making is another passion of  Joan’s as she has been baking up delicious goodies since she was a child--a skill nurtured by her mother who was also known for her wondering baked goods.  It only seemed natural to use these skills as a support for her main passion of helping young women grow into all they can be. The delightful images of children that adorn Chocolate Babies containers, are Joan’s personal photographic art.

Your support is a two-fold blessing: you make someone happy by giving them wonderful chocolate treats, and you help to make a difference in the life of a girl or young woman.
