About

Who are we? We are the Northwoods Food Factory and here in the north woods of Minnesota, we create some of the most delectable artisan desserts and we do it the old-fashioned way.

.By hand.

In our kitchen.

In small batches.

With love and care and pride.

We create desserts that become the finishing touch to gourmet meals. We also create gift boxes of individually chosen treats for every occasion imaginable, shipped or hand delivered locally.

We’ve been doing this for family, friends, and co-workers for holidays and other special occasions for years. We are still amazed at how many such occasions there are, from birthdays to weddings to baby showers to… well, you name it. And, of course, a gift of delightfully delicious handmade treats for Christmas or New Year’s is always a thoughtful gift. We do one thing and we do it well.

In our north woods kitchen you’ll find only one kind of dessert. The best kind. Consider our fudge. There’s chocolate fudge, peanut butter fudge, rum fudge, peppermint fudge, eggnog fudge, and the list goes on an on. Our peppermint fudge has real, crushed candy canes in it. We also make the most delicious banana bread as you’ve never had it until now… or even thought of unless you have a wonderful, active imagination.

Ever treated yourself to banana bread with chocolate in the middle? With walnuts and chocolate? With cherries? Cranberries? With a sugar glaze that can only be achieved by a skilled, gourmet dessert chef?

We are proud of what we do and how we do it. Creating gourmet quality, specialty desserts involves old-fashioned, family style cooking. No mass production here. Each batch is hand made and hand packaged. Why do we do it this way when we could use commercial methods? Because making gourmet desserts is an art form and we are proud to call ourselves artists. Because gourmet desserts put the finishing touch on wonderful, family meals. Because, after years of being told, “you should sell these sinfully delicious desserts” we are doing precisely that. The result of that decision is that now you, too, can enjoy what our family and friends have enjoyed for years.

So step into our online shop and choose whichever special treats will put the finishing touch to your meals. Or that will provide a unique feel to your special occasion, whether it be in the form of a holiday gift box or a tray of treats to bring exclamations of delight from your guests. Or whether you are choosing to treat yourself. After all everyone deserves to be pampered. Even you. Especially you.
