You’re either really excited about the holidays approaching (it’s closer than you think), or you really just don’t even want to think about it. Either way, I have a gift idea that I’m sure you can appreciate this early in the game…and if you’re stressed out even thinking about it, then just gift yourself this, and you’ll feel much better. Gotta Eat Sweets makes these amazing treats, the Truffibite and Truffipop, that are halfway between a chocolate truffle and a brownie. Sounds like a combination that couldn’t possibly go wrong, right? Absolutely right. I got to taste a few flavors: S’mores (pictured), dark chocolate mint, and raspberry.
When we sampled them at work, I thought it wouldn’t be very dainty of me to scarf down the whole Truffibite at once – self-control fail on my part, they really were delicious. The 9-year-old in me liked the s’more flavor best: The outside was chocolate coated with crunchy, sweet graham cracker goodness, and the inside was soft, fluffy marshmallow inside a milk chocolate brownie. Two other editors tried white chocolate cheesecake and dulce de leche. All I got from the white chocolate cheesecake sampler was an “Mmmmmm” between bites, and I was told dulce de leche is definitely good for someone with a serious sweet tooth. The best part? These Truffibites/Truffipops are made totally out of scratch with all natural, organic ingredients (no preservatives, no trans fats and no artificial colors) so you know you’re getting the good stuff. There’s even a gluten-free version available. They come in a beautiful box with a huge bow, so if you can resist keeping them for yourself, it makes a great gift that’s got a little more personality than your average box of chocolates.
