I don’t know anyone who loves chocolate just as much as I do. I blame this passion on a three-week chocolate class in culinary school, where I was surrounded by entrancing smells and unlimited bites of bliss. 

I try more chocolate now than I ever did, but I’ve struggled to find truffles that rival the bites from that class. That’s until Compartés sent me its advent calendar.

Though different from homemade chocolate, these tiny morsels instantly transported me back to the creative flavors I had in culinary school. Their dark chocolate exterior had the perfect snap, and each ganache interior bursted with flavor, rich-creaminess, and sometimes a pop of crunch, depending on the type. 

The advent calendar was a fun introduction to Compartés, which is why I’m grabbing an even bigger box for myself and loved ones this holiday season. The 40-piece Signature Chocolate Gift-Box includes almost double the chocolates, and at $94, it’s $10 less than the advent calendar too.

Though you won’t for sure know what tasty combinations you’ll get, you can surely count on receiving creative, well-balanced flavors similar to that of a handmade, pro-approved truffle.
