Meet the Team

Leigh Williams -  I founded Laughing Moon Chocolates in 2002 to share my passion for creating beautiful, delicious chocolates in an inspiring, creative, customer driven atmosphere that promotes learning and personal growth.

What is most important to me? Making people happy. Whether it's my staff or customers my main goal is always to provide a simple but memorable experience for every customer and a supportive, enthusiastic work enviroment.
I have learned that it is often the simplest things that bring people the most joy and sharing my chocolates with the community has been amazing.

The business has grown over the years and now depends on an amazing team of talented and dedicated people, creating delicious chocolates and confections.
They cook all the centers in a small copper kettle using the freshest local ingredients available.
Generations-old recipes are utilized and improved upon to create buttercream, caramel, fudge, buttercrunch and truffles.

Laughing Moon's shop and kitchen occupy a beautiful space at 78 South Main Street in the village of Stowe, Vermont.

I recently moved to Fayston and am enjoying our little hillside farm, which we named Snapdragon Farm. We even have a Facebook page for it (https://www.facebook.com/Snapdragonfarm)
Our free-range eggs are often available at Laughing Moon Chocolates and hopefully next year we will start selling our own Maple Syrup!
We have 120 taps on a gravity fed line system and so long as I can stop burning the pan, we should have beautiful syrup next spring.

I earned a Master's degree in Public Administration in 2016 from the University of Vermont.
