Chocolates & Sweets at Next Door
Emily’s Mother’s Day Sweets Selection
Our shelves are filled with mom-thrilling confections and as always, we are ready to assist you in finding the perfect gift. To help guide you, I’ve composed a list of confections sure to make mom’s day a little sweeter.
Nougat de Montélimar
Treat mom to this classic French confection. Almonds and pistachios wrapped in soft, creamy nougat made with egg whites and lavender honey (without this rare lavender honey, it can’t be called Nougat de Montélimar). Made in small batches in copper cauldrons by a small confiserie first founded in 1900, now run by sister and brother Ghislane and Jaques Savin. The perfect afternoon pick-me-up with coffee or tea, served as dessert or an extra special treat for the lunch box.
Decadent bonbon fillings in a jar! Joan Coukos, confection creator and owner of Chocolat Moderne, has crafted caramel sauces based on the recipes of her favorite award winning bonbon fillings. More flavor than your average sauce, these caramels are designed for homemade culinary creations, from bonbon fillings, layering in cakes, making sandwich cookies, drizzling over gelato and more. Choose from: Passion Fruit, Espresso Chocolate and Blood Orange.
Chocolate & Pecan Butter Toffee
Butter up mom with an indulgent Michigan made classic with simple ingredients (chocolate, pecans, butter & sugar!) mixed to create a sublime texture. With its addictive balance of salty and sweet, mom might need another bag.
Salty Sweet Cashew Bar
For the milk chocolate loving mom, nothing can be better than this creamy milk chocolate bar with large cashews, sprinkled with fleur de sel and pure cane sugar, roasted to golden brown perfection and combined with creamy milk chocolate.
Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory
Zzang! Bar Mother’s Day Gift Box
Charlie from our chocolate manufactory has gift wrapped special candy boxes just for mom. Each box filled with 12 bite-sized bars of our top selling candy bar, the Original Zzang! Roasted jumbo peanuts are sprinkled with sea salt, layered with honey nougat and muscovado brown sugar caramel, then dipped in dark chocolate.
Antica Dolceria Bonajuto
If you have a dark chocolate loving mom try these amazing chocolate bars that use only three ingredients: cocoa, muscovado sugar, and fragrant vanilla. They come to us from a chocolate maker in a little city in Sicily. Founded in 1880, it is one the oldest existent confection shops, which is still family-owned & operated. Their grainy, cold-milled dark chocolate is made with techniques dating back to the 16th century. The mixture never gets hot enough to melt the sugar crystals, which gives the chocolate its signature course texture.
Tien Giang, 80%
Is your mom a dark chocolate purist? This 80% bar is one of the darkest on our shelves and crafted without any extra ingredients. Made with cacao grown in Vietnam, the chocolate features intense notes of green tea, smoke, delicate hints of cinnamon and a touch of acidity.
