Just in case you were convinced that Halloween candy was solely for the enjoyment of the little ones or if you happen to be the parent of those kids who guard their “candy stash” with their lives, here is the perfect solution! Take a look at this terrific list and just say “no” to the usual Halloween haul!
So if you love:
Place an order with MarieBelle for their Croquette au Chocolat! This chocolate treat uses delicate, buttery European cookies to add crispy, crunchy texture to either milk or dark chocolate! The elegant packaging is icing on the cake! (MarieBelle, Croquette au Chocolat) **This site is down for maintenance, please check back for pricing and ordering information**
P.S. If you happen to live in the NYC area the MarieBelle Sunday Brunch at their Madison Avenue location sounds divine!
The Little Flower Candy Company offers homemade marshmallows in four flavors: cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate and coffee. All are freshly prepared without artificial ingredients! (Little Flower Candy Company, Homemade Marshmallows, on sale for 1/4lb for $6.00)
Promising a flash back to childhood, Jacques Torres sells malt balls coated in milk and dark chocolate! Presentation is in a stylish cylindrical container. (Jacques Torres, Chocolate Maltballs, on sale for $10.00)
If you love peanut butter cups, trade up for The Joycup Co.’s version! Featuring milk chocolate, fresh peanut butter filling and a toping of nuts and fleur de sel, these confections are terrific!
Matching this classic candy bar’s nougat and peanuts, Bridgewater’s Chocolates offer their Chewy Peanut Bar, layered with nougat, crunchy peanuts and soft caramel enrobed in milk chocolate.
