I was just wondering what sort of laws are in place if I was considering selling chocolate products that I make at home?

Does anyone know where I could find this information?

Thanks!

You really need to speak to a lawyer on that. Some will be federal laws and others will pertain to your state only. You will need SERIOUS insurance to cover you if anyone were to claim food poisoning, etc otherwise you could have a huge lawsuit against you. Doing food type of stuff definitely needs to involve a session to 2 with a business lawyer to make sure you have yourself covered legally and financially. It'll probably cost $200-$300 to do that though so be prepared.
