At first, the Aztecs punished their enemies by pouring hot chocolate down their throats, until the proud warriors found out their foes actually liked it and promptly switched to molten gold. Relive the pleasure of those lucky few conquistadors with today's deal: for $9, you get a nine-piece box of truffles (a $19 value, including tax) at Creative Confectionaire in Hastings. This boutique chocolatier rolls and dips premium truffles made from European chocolate and fresh, Midwestern dairy products. Sashay sweet teeth to the aromatic storefront, where you can watch chocolate conjurers produce dense fudge from a pouch of magical cocoa beans, and pick up a sampler box of best-selling truffles, including milk chocolate, chocolate-caramel crunch, french silk, black forest, and crème de menthe. The nine-piece box also contains three surprise flavors, potentially fulfilling dreams of biting into a crumpled hundred-dollar bill covered in ganache. Since Creative Confectionaire makes all of their chocolates and fudge fresh, they recommend that customers call ahead to order a box for pick-up.
