Must get Christmas Chocolates of the season


Best of the season great foodie friends,
It has been a while since I have posted due to the busy times and of course life getting in the way!
I thought that you should see, taste and put these Must Have Christmas Chocolates of the season on your must try list.

Get ready because believe it or not the best continue to get better!
Top honours go to the following Chocolate Masters
Apologies if there is a chocolate or chocolate master that I may have missed- this statement
attest to the fact that our city now has more wonderful established and up and coming Chocolatiers & pastry chefs than almost anywhere else in North America.
Kudos list:
Chez Christophe

Address: 4712 Hastings Street, Burnaby

This chocolate not only looks like Christmas on the outside but lays Christmas on your tastebuds from the second it crosses your lips!
The Christmas figures are also a bonus for giving to those nice not naughty children to light up those smiles!

ChocXO

Peppermint

This chocolate is the perfect balance of chocolate ganache and peppermint and says Christmas as it melts in your mouth.
Honourable mention to their Fresh Chocolate or better known as bark. It is from cacao beans roasted in their own factory and organic!

Gingerbread
This Chocolate brings you back to childhood and eating a gingerbread cookie. The flavour profile is bang on and the little bits of crunch throughout the ganache is just perfect!

Temper
Location: 2409 Marine Drive, West Vancouver

Eggnog & Salty Balls
Tempers eggnog chocolate is full of that wonderment that I look for every year in eggnog, a perfect surprise was the salty balls available in normal and mini sizes. It is a one bite chocolate as the salted caramel filling is liquid and watch out for these ying yang flavours – addictive I’ll say!

Chocolate Arts
Location: 1620 West 3rd Ave, Vancouver
Gingerbread caramel & Crantini

The flavours in these two perfect holiday chocolates are spot on and make you smile as your eating them.

Most of these Chocolatiers / Patisserie masters make other signature items for Christmas such as chocolate figures or Bûche de Noël so I encourage you to get in soon to see your favourites and place your orders just in case.

Disclosure: I am not connected to these businesses in anyway shape or form and my opinions are my own. My recommendations are thought out but truly my personal opinions.

Happy Sweet Holidays to All!

You Gotta Try These!
