Mickey Miller doesn’t hesitate to admit that she hates to cook.

“I’m not a complicated recipe person,” she said. “But I have always loved baking. When I am in the kitchen I like to figure out how to make a recipe right and maintain the quality.”

Those are wise words coming from a woman who has spent the last couple of years honing her skills as a chocolatier.

Miller owns Mount Vernon Confections, a chocolate shop that prides itself on high quality, simple chocolate made from top of the line ingredients.

These days, things are very busy at the chocolate shop. They have been since November in fact.
