Debbie Mangeney is the founder, owner and Chief Confectioner at Debbie's Delights. Debbie was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. As a child, Debbie would stand on a stepstool next to her Italian grandmother, anxious to learn the fine art of cooking and baking. During these years, she cultivated an appreciation for using only the freshest ingredients and won praise for her creativity in the kitchen. Her years of hands-on experience helped her to develop a discriminating palate, sensitive to the subtle influences of flavors, aroma and texture on how various foods could be enjoyed.
Debbie eventually discovered she had a natural talent for baking and creating highly coveted desserts, including her signature chocolate confections. Her passion for making chocolate was ignited!!
She started by making gifts for family and friends but found that once people tasted her chocolate, many wanted to purchase some for gifts and special events. When Debbie moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, her dream of operating her own chocolate business became a reality and Debbie's Delights was born.
She says the name reflects her desire to provide a product that delights the senses
...a special treat...an indulgence! With Debbie's high energy personality and uncompromising attention to quality, it wasn't long before she was handling orders for corporate clients, themed event shows and private parties. Says Debbie, "I use only the finest, all natural ingredients and all my products are delivered fresh for your enjoyment."
Debbie is so "delighted" to offer her fine handmade confections to all who desire a richly satisfying experience. As she likes to say, "Make it a sweet day!"
