<p>After three long years away, Ben and Jen Hauser are bringing their <a href="http://www.complex.com/city-guide/2011/02/best-chocolatiers-in-america#46">nationally-ranked chocolates</a> back to Timonium.</p>
<p><a href="http://www.glaruschocolatier.com/">Glarus</a><a href="http://www.glaruschocolatier.com/"> Chocolatier</a> garnered a devoted following of fans when the Hausers first opened the shop on Aylesbury Road just before Christmas in 2004. </p> <p>They ran two shops for several years between Timonium and the ever-trendy Harbor East, before ultimately leaving Lutherville in April 2010.</p> <p>On Feb. 13, 2013 the Hausers came back—just in time for Valentine's Day, traditionally the busiest day of the year for the master chocolatiers.</p> <p>The shop itself is named after Ben's father's hometown in Switzerland. Ben's father worked in restaurants before opening his own bakery.</p> <p>Ben, growing up around gourmet, also became a baker and decided to follow in his father's footsteps, with a twist.</p> <p>“When him and I met I was actually looking to open a bakery so we were both unemployed figuring out what we wanted to do," Jen said. "He was planning more of a chocolate store standalone from what his father does.”</p> <p>From there it was love at first... bite.</p> <p>“We just collaborated and decided to do it together,” Jen said. “Within six months of meeting we were engaged and six months after that we opened our business.”</p> <p>In June, they'll have been married for eight years. <br><br>“So we’ve been together almost 10 [years]," Jen said<br><br>“Well, December was nine,” Ben added. <br><br>“He knows numbers better than I do," Jen said smiling adoringly at her husband.</p>
