Enjoy Dilettante Chocolates This Holiday Season

During the chilly month of December, the days are often filled with plans to spend with family and loved ones. The holiday season is fun and exciting but can just as easily feel busy and overwhelming, especially when it comes to giving gifts.

While stocking stuffers are known as small token gifts, they can leave a big impression. The time-old adage, “It’s the thought that counts,” is still accurate today. Showing appreciation to friends and family is an essential part of any gift, and a stocking stuffer or two is all it takes.

For the 2021 holiday season, Dilettante Chocolates has made many different confections for sharing. Chocolate is a classic gift and is loved by almost everyone. To help make this year even more special, these chocolate gifts are all under $10 and are sure to delight loved ones during the holidays.

1. Ephemere TruffleCreme Novelty Gift Box

Ephemere TruffleCremes in Red Wrappers

 This holiday-themed gift box features Dilettante’s signature dark chocolate flavor, Ephemere. Using an heirloom family recipe, Ephemere chocolate is made by combining caramelized butter, sugar, and cream. This leads to a distinct and velvety smooth chocolate taste, able to delight even the most discerning chocolate connoisseur.

Using the Ephemere formula and all-natural ingredients, Dilettante’s TruffleCremes are a great way to share this delicious flavor. Like Dilettante’s hand-dipped truffles, TruffleCremes are made with a soft dark chocolate ganache center and coated with an additional dark chocolate shell.

These treats are then wrapped in bright red foils to maintain their freshness. Unwrap each one, and enjoy a profoundly indulgent dark chocolate flavor.
