LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A sweet treat made in downtown Louisville will be among the goodies included in the 86th Academy Award gift baskets in less than two weeks.
Kelly and Forest Ramsey are owners of Art Eatables on Fourth Street. Kelly Ramsey says she hopes more people will get to try hand-dipped bourbon chocolate made in Louisville as a result of the boxes being prepared.
Awards organizers have given the Ramseys until Monday to produce 500 boxes and ship them to California, where the Academy Awards will be presented March 2.
Each box will include four hand-rolled truffles made of European chocolate with a ganache filling of heavy creams, chocolate and flavorings. Atop each truffle is the bourbon brand identification token, also made of chocolate.
