Petits Fours

Petits Fours have been holiday traditions for decades, but they’re not just for Christmas. In addition to our tried-and-true classic assortments, you’ll find Petits Fours in the fresh flavors and pastel colors of spring and the earth tones and warming spice notes of fall.

Butter Toffee

Every single piece of Swiss Colony Butter Toffee is hand-poured, hand-fashioned and hand-packed for homemade care in every bite, and a melt-in-your-mouth flavor bursting with buttery goodness—the best you’ve ever tasted! In fact, our Butter Toffee is so mouth-wateringly delicious, it won the Wisconsin State Fair Seal of Excellence…but the most important awards it wins are in the hearts and minds of our customers.

Fruitcake

We’ve all heard the jokes about how fruitcakes are passed down through the generations. But while fruitcakes really will last for months with proper storage—even more with an occasional application of brandy, rum or whiskey—it’s the tradition of the fruitcake that has the most longevity. This rich treat has been around in one form or another since Roman times.

Dobosh Torte

The Swiss Colony’s reputation was built on selling Wisconsin cheese...but founder Ray Kubly wanted to utilize the state’s other dairy products—like butter—so in 1959 he built a bakery staffed with meister konditors (master pastry chefs) recruited from Austria. The bakery’s very first product was a multi-layered cake fashioned after one from the bakers’ homeland: Dobosh Torte.
