Great chocolate flavors are made even more special because they celebrate seasonal flavors.

Thus, master chocolatier Larry Burdick has created a collection of eight bonbons celebrating the famous flavors of winter.

It’s a big box of chocolate. The total of 58 bonbons are enough to satisfy a family—or a chocoholic—who appreciate the best.

An exquisite celebration of the season, the bonbons include:

  • Champagne: The bright fragrance of champagne meets the palate of velvety whipped ganache, garnished with a sparkle of color.
  • Chestnut: This bonbon is an homage to roasted chestnuts, made with roasted chestnuts and chestnut honey, which is gathered from bees that feed on the blossoms of the chestnut tree.
  • Eggnog: An ode to an iconic drink of winter, the flavor of eggnog is complemented with a touch of Cognac and freshly-grated nutmeg.
  • Grapefruit: The sweet-tart bite of grapefruit shines in this bonbon, and brings vibrancy to the rich dark chocolate.
  • Mulled Wine: From the German Glühwein to the French vin chaud, mulled wine (photo #3) delivers an aromatic medley of orange and lemon peel, cinnamon, clove and vanilla bean.
  • Pistachio & Fig: The succulent sweetness of fig and Port wine jam, plus ground pistachios, are set off beautifully by white chocolate.
  • Rosemary & Thyme: This bonbon highlights the hardy, woody, winter herbs. Ground hazelnuts and dark chocolate are blended with olive oil that is infused with rosemary and thyme.
  • Stollen: An homage to the buttery, nut-filled, cake-like fruit bread that is a centuries-old Christmas tradition in Germany. Like Stollen, this bonbon has flavors of nutmeg, cardamom, rum-soaked raisins and candied citrus peel.
  • Winter Spices: This dark chocolate truffle has an interior of caramelized honey infused with spices. It’s fragrant with ginger, cinnamon, clove, and citrus fruit and laced with dark rum.
