It could be the basis for a Hallmark Channel film: Mother and daughter begin making confections and cookies for family and friends together when the daughter’s eight. The daughter, Darlynne Overbaugh, continues to refine mother Darlynne’s recipes —yes, her mother is named Darlynne as well — while expanding her knowledge of chocolate and developing new flavor combinations.
This chocolate-making hobby continues to remain a non-profit enterprise well into adulthood, but solely for fun and the enjoyment of friends and family. However, Bill, Darlynne’s husband, sees an opportunity to combine his wife’s passion into an entrepreneurial opportunity. He suggests that the two open up a business.
