Minds may be wandering to Halloween candy at this time of year, but we’ve found our favorite treat: a box of chocolates from North South Confections.
These are not your typical box of artisan chocolates; but rather, the best combination of fruit, caramel and chocolate we’ve ever tasted.
Chocolatier Justine Pringle starts with 100% fresh fruit pureés, caramelizes them, and then infuses them with either white or milk chocolate. They are then enrobed in 70% cacao dark chocolate.
The results are spectacular.
The company’s first collection is called Fruits Both Familiar and Curious. It is $ 52 for 12 pieces, and worth every cent.
So treat yourself. The gift box alone is a gorgeous keeper.
After we consumed the first box, we couldn’t wait to order more.
These chocolate tastes of heaven are the creation of Justine Pringle, a Danish-South African chocolatier who now lives in New York City.
Justine has been named one of the “Top Ten Chocolatiers in North America” by Dessert Professional Magazine.
Prior to starting North South Confections she created the award-winning Nunu Chocolates, which was named “Top Ten Chocolates” by New York Magazine and one of Bon Appetit’s “Best Chocolates in America.” It was also a named a Top Pick Of The Week by THE NIBBLE.
Needless to say, Justine has a great chocolate pedigree. Growing up in Copenhagen, Johannesburg, and Geneva (where she ate chocolate every single day, she wants you to know), she has a cultured palate that’s reflected in the variety of flavors she selects.
The mix of both familiar and curious fruits include two pieces each of:
You deserve a box of these palate pleasers; and we wager that you’ll want another box as soon as you finish the first.
