We all agree it’s OK to indulge in sweets during the holiday season, because it’s the one time of the year when calories and fat don’t count. With that in mind, check out these two lines of chocolates for your sweet tooth.
Godiva Chocolatier is making merry with a trio of limited-edition seasonal goodies. The 32-piece Chocolate Gift Box is full of milk-and dark-chocolate candies snuggled in festive packaging ($56). The six-piece Holiday Chocolate Truffles gift box includes gingerbread and cranberry flavors ($16). The Hot Cocoa Gift Set contains eight packets of milk-chocolate cocoa and four of dark-chocolate cocoa ($20).
Meanwhile, French chocolatier Valrhona contracted fashion designer Christian Lacroix to design the boxes for its line of limited-edition seasonal chocolates. The packaging shows shades of haute couture with Lacroix’s signature lace pattern. The chocolates themselves – a mix of dark and milk –come in tempting flavors including cappuccino, salted caramel and Earl Gray tea ($32 per 16-piece box).
