  Ms. STEFANIK. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor and recognize 
Barkeater Chocolates on its 10th anniversary.
  In 2008, Debbie Morris decided to turn her passion for chocolate into 
a business. With the help of her husband, Jim, she set out to provide 
the Adirondacks with artisanal chocolate. The Morris's renovated an old 
home into a chocolate factory and retail store in the North Creek area, 
and have not stopped making chocolate since.
  Unsatisfied with the lack of variety and quality of chocolates 
available in their community, the Morris's set out to provide the North 
Country the delicious sweets it deserves. Barkeater Chocolates proudly 
offers dozens of flavors of truffles, caramels, bars, bark, peanut 
butter cups, and cocoa. Now a thriving business,

Barkeater Chocolates serves as a wonderful example of successful 
entrepreneurship in the North Country.
  On behalf of New York's 21st district, I want to congratulate 
Barkeater Chocolates on its 10th anniversary. Barkeater Chocolates 
plays an important role in North Creek community life, and I look 
forward to watching Barkeater Chocolates continue to flourish in the 
years to come.
