    One seasonal treat that won’t be re-gifted or passed along to the next holiday gathering is a box of divine chocolates. Let’s face it; even if you don’t normally have a sweet tooth, a rich bite of heaven is sure to please anyone.

    Instead of opting for the traditional arrangement, might we suggest a bit of decadence from across the pond? Created by famed Danish chef, Fritz Knipschildt, the La Madeline Au Truffle retails for $2,600 per pound. The treat is crafted with a rare French Perigard truffle in the center, surrounded by a spell of Valhrona dark chocolate, heavy cream, sugar, pure truffle oil and vanilla to form its ganache. Talk about a mouthful!

    Should you be looking for the same luxury a little closer to home, Matisse Chocolatiers has you covered. Offering custom truffles in an array of flavors; amaretto praline, white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, cappuccino vanilla malt, legendary dark and of course the store’s signature Frozen Rum Creme—just to name a few, Matisse has made its home sweet home in both Englewood, New Jersey and Orangeburg, New York. Ready to create your most desirable delicacies, Matisse Chocolatier is sure to please your pallet, no matter what flavor you favor.
