Hey kids, it’s that time of year!   The Holiday Sale Page is up over at SugarPunk Desserts’ main site, and we’re ready and waiting for your orders!

Everything from truffles, to bon bons, to holiday breads and cookies – you name it, you can buy it.  I’ll ship anywhere, using USPS Priority mail.

Holiday orders placed by December 12th are guaranteed to be shipped by the 18th, which should give them plenty of time to arrive by Christmas.

Seasonal Truffle Flavors:

  • Gingerbread – Rich and creamy milk chocolate center, infused with ginger and other spices and enhanced with a splash of Canton ginger liqueur, then enrobed in dark Belgian chocolate.
  • Mulled Wine – Mulled/Spiced Spanish Grenache is used to flavor this sophisticated dark chocolate truffle.
  • Smoky Scotch – Single-Malt Highland Scotch Whisky and a touch of Lapsang Souchon tea create a rich, smoky flavor enhanced by bittersweet dark chocolate.
  • Chocolate-Dipped Apple Cider Caramel – local NC apple cider and Mountain View Dairy Cream are used to create a fantastic cream caramel that’s then enrobed in dark chocolate and sprinkled with pecans.

Available as a four-piece assortment (one of each) for $8, or a twelve-piece assortment (three pieces of each flavor), for $22.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but look soon to find treats such as raspberry-lemon tart, Chocolate-hazelnut brownies (oh my goodness), and more truffles!

Meanwhile, I had an appointment today with the owners of a local wine shop to do some chocolate tasting and talk about adding chocolates to their offerings – the meeting went very well, and it looks like I might be putting together an exclusive line of chocolates for them.  (Exclusive meaning not being offered at any other wine shops – if you want to buy them directly, you will certainly be able to).  Currently the thought is to put together a chocolate/wine tasting sometime in the next month or so – time to start brainstorming flavors!

So, dear readers, what flavors of chocolates would you pair with wine?  (and which wines)  I’m really drawn by spices and teas for flavorings – the earl grey truffle is amazing, and so is the organic peppermint (although I’m not so certain about the pairability of that one 🙂  ).  I’m also a huge cardamom fan.  Would love to hear what you think!

(and keep your fingers crossed about this collaboration – I’m really excited!)
