My Story


My name is Larry Waters, the founder, and chocolatier at Yummyworks.

I started my career as a government contractor in the DC metro area and left the Government to become a stay-at-home dad for our three kids.

During this transition, I became very passionate about chocolate and confections. Growing up just 30 miles from Hershey PA, the confectionery Capital, I always had fond memories of candy and confections as a child and maybe those precipitated my love for chocolate and creativity.

Having no prior chocolate or pastry experience, I self taught myself for years, thru trial and error. In 2018, I founded Yummyworks.

Yummyworks is a workspace for confectionery creativity where we produce quality artisan products.

Yummyworks brings together skilled artisans with a commitment to making unique products that create memorable experiences. Our chocolates are produced in the same manner as European chocolateries.

Each chocolate is carefully designed, hand-crafted, and made in small batches.
