Shipping & Delivery
Ethereal Confections are made by hand in small batches to provide you with the freshest chocolate possible.
We don’t ship at the end of the week because we don’t want your chocolates waiting somewhere over the weekend. Orders placed after 12 noon on Wednesday (to destinations outside of Wisconsin and the Chicago area) will usually be shipped the following Monday. Regardless of the day, if we don’t think your chocolate will be delivered by the weekend, we may hold it until Monday rather than risk a damaged product. Packages are shipped with a signature release, meaning that the package will be delivered to your door without a signature. If you are sending a gift to a warm location, please tell your recipient when to expect the delivery so their chocolate doesn’t melt on their doorstep.
We are is not responsible for missing, stolen or damaged packages after they are delivered to the address specified by the customer or for orders returned or delayed due to incorrect or undeliverable addresses.
If you have any special delivery instructions, please let us know at the time of your order. If the order is a gift, please include a message that will be included on the gift enclosure.
