Several years ago, my husband stumbled upon what is now our favorite chocolates: Gearhart's.
A couple of times a year, we indulge and order the 32 piece assortment. A beautiful box of sinful goodness. I have considered switching us to the custom assortment (it is only $1 more) over the years, but realize that between the two of us, we enjoy all 16 flavors.
I'm not a big fan of liquor in chocolate. My husband, on the other hand quite enjoys such combinations. Personally, my favorites include: vanilla bean brulee, malted milk hazelnut, brown butter caramel and almond mocha.
Our most recent orders (yes, that is plural - my husband ordered one for us and I ordered one for a friend's birthday) shipped the day we ordered and arrived at their destinations in about two days. These are high end chocolates and will not handle excessive heat. Please bear that in mind if you are considering ordering during warmer months. Artisan chocolates are also designed to be eaten quickly. They should be stored at room temperature (cold changes the chemistry of the chocolate) and eaten within a few days. (This will not be a problem.)
No, we have not shared with our offspring. He did have a mini Nestle Crunch bar though.
