A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full-flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while operating a segway. Sate your sophisticated sweet tooth with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two specially packaged five-piece holiday chocolate gift boxes from Allie's Edibles (a $20 value). Pick up your order from the reception area of Allie's professional kitchen in Carlsbad, or order online and use your Groupon toward the cost of shipping.
The eponymous chef Allie is a lifelong devotee of the chocolate altar, a once-amateur chef who went pro with her husband, Jason, to provide original recipes to slavering hoards of chocoholics. Your gift boxes will each contain five chocolate treats in the following varietals: peanut butter bar, pretzel and toffee bark, rich ganache, buttery caramel, and macadamia/cashew toffee. The whole sugary shebang is wrapped in a festive holiday tote featuring snowflakes on a deep blue background, making it a sweet seasonal gift for a family member, coworker, or neighborhood trash-can monster.
Chocolate consumption not only boosts endorphins and floods the blood with miniature plague-battling chocolate chips, it also creates pleasant associations tied distinctly to he or she who procured the sweet stuff. With winter festivities swiftly approaching, now or now is an ideal time to order up a giftworthy batch of Allie's signature treats and ensure that you stay on the nice end of the Santa-monitored behavioral spectrum. All of Allie's desserts are entirely handmade, kosher certified, and forged from high-quality ingredients, such as gelatin from Israel and vanilla from Tahiti. Allie's chocolate is a proprietary blend, so tasting it elsewhere would be not only impossible, but also illegal.
- I tasted a bunch of “comfort candies” at Allie’s Edibles and really liked the Chocolate Pretzel & Toffee Bark, which is a fun mix of pretzels and toffee bits in chocolate. Both the pretzels and the toffee provide a salty hit and a distinct crunch. It’s all Kosher too (she has Marshmallows as well). – CYBELE, Candy Blog
