San Francisco Advent Calendar designed by Maggie Enterrios
Dandelion Chocolate is a San Francisco based small batch Chocolatier. Each year they create an advent calendar that showcases their own chocolate masterpieces alongside other local confectioners, all of whom use Dandelion Chocolate cacao in their work.

For their 2018 collection, they wanted to go bigger than ever before, creating an intricate hand illustrated package for the largest production run in their history.

"This calendar is a true collaboration; with 13 California based confectioners, lettering by Lisa Quine and all illustrated artwork by Maggie Enterrios. This calendar is a true work of art. " - Dandelion Chocolate
Inside of calendar, with 25 individual matchbook boxes, each containing a chocolate by a different Bay Area Chocolatier. 
Each of the interior matchbook boxes featured an illustrated native Bay Area plant or animal and was printed with meticulously applied copper foil. The underside of each box includes facts about the flora and fauna it features.
The calendar was featured by Martha Stewart, Refinery29 and several online food + beverage publications. See below for process shots and final artwork:
