The Sweet Life

To say that I have a sweet tooth is probably an understatement. On a subconscious level, a love for chocolate may be a prerequisite to being in my inner circle of friends. The only thing more pleasurable that indulging yourself is spreading the love....

Gourmet chocolate and other confections make great gifts for all sorts of occasions from weddings to birthdays to housewarmings. Here are two of my favorites:

Teuscher Chocolates of Switzerland (620 Fifth Avenue - 1-800-554-0924) has delicious truffles in tiny boxes of two ($6.25) and four ($11.95). The boxes and ribbons come in a variety of colors to match your event decor. Perfect for wedding favors or on place settings for Easter brunch.

Chocolate Bar NYC (48 8th Avenue - 212-367-7181) was created by Alison Nelson and is truly a candy store for grown-ups. In addition to truffles and bon bons, they have retro chocolate bars with unique flavors such as Salty Pretzel and Malted Milk. But, the melt in your mouth Caramels take top prize for most original present. An assorted box ($35) features pecan nougat, chocolate mint, mocha, nougat strip and classic caramel.

Cautionary note: Accepting chocolate from strangers can be dangerous. Anyone that attempts to give you a box of Ferrero Rocher should be reported immediately!

I had asked the Chocolate Bar to do something special for me for an event and they did it beautifully. They're great people to work with and deliver a good quality product. As far as I know, everybody loved their chocolates from Rafe / Chocolate Bar.
