Chocolate Care Package
It’s an unusual time and we sorely miss seeing our guests’ smiling faces at our factory and cafés. Yet behind the scenes, we’ve seen an outpouring of online chocolate care packages being sent to friends and loved ones across the world. It means so much to see everyone choosing to send chocolate to those they care about. For a limited time, we’ve taken the most popular selections from the past few weeks, and bundled them here to make it even easier to send a “thinking of you” package. Each package includes a hand-written notecard (customized by the sender for each recipient) and includes the following:
- Feve Artisan Chocolatier, Sea Salt Caramels (9 pieces, 3 ounces)
- Dandelion Chocolate, Hot Chocolate Mix (5.5 ounces)
- NeoCocoa, Black Sesame Toffee Brittle (3 ounces)
Le Dix Sept, Nougat Chocolat (2.8 ounces)
Feve Artisan Chocolatier, Sea Salt Caramels Made with Dandelion chocolate in collaboration with Feve Artisan Chocolatier, each smooth, buttery caramel is a perfect balance of salty and sweet. Imagine specks of vanilla bean floating in rich caramel offset by delicate, minerally, unrefined Fleur Du Sel (handpicked off the coast of Brittany, France).
Dandelion Chocolate’s Hot Chocolate Mix: We use our 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador single-origin chocolate as the rich base for our House Hot Chocolate mix. Each reusable corked bottle provides enough chocolate mix for four servings though we’ve been known to sprinkle this on our oatmeal, ice cream, or put a spoonful in our coffee too.
NeoCocoa’s Black Sesame Toffee Brittle (a 2020 Good Food Award Winner!): We’re thankful that NeoCocoa’s owner, Christine Doerr, and her small team are still producing one of our favorite chocolate confections during this time. The combination of black sesame, 70% Camino Verde chocolate from Ecuador, brown sugar, buttery toffee, and a pinch of sea salt make this one of our favorites.
Le Dix Sept’s Creamy Chocolate Nougat: Le Dix-Sept Pâtisserie’s owner and Bay Area native, Michelle Hernandez, crafts this handmade nougat with black mission figs, pumpkin seeds, hazelnuts, and Dandelion chocolate inspired from her years of living and training in France. We enjoy this nougat on its own and especially when paired with Stilton or Manchego cheese which elevates the nougat’s naturally fruity and nutty flavors.
