I am burdened with quite a few "people who have everything" on my holiday list each year. Fortunately, as I discovered a few years ago, no one can have enough Richart chocolate.
These are no mall store truffles, I swear. Parisian chocolatier Richart’s offerings are absolutely exquisite, made from rare Venezuelan cocoa and filled with everything from crowd-pleasing salted caramels to more unusual offerings like thyme praline, orange zest coulis, or jasmine tea ganache.
They have some amazing holiday assortments, of course. But I think the greatest gifts come from their Little Gourmet collection, in which each chocolate is topped with charming designs from from the under-12 winners of Richart’s annual worldwide children’s design contest.
But do yourself a favor–keep them away from your own under twelves. Trust me. -Liz
