milk and dark gourmet chocolate

The holiday season is nearly upon us and it means but one thing: it’s going to get hectic. There is much to do—from baking and shopping to gathering and wrapping. Whether you are hosting a gathering or traveling cross country to be with loved ones, your to-do list is growing by the day.

In getting ready for said events, having a plan is a must. First things first: it’s time to think about the dessert spread. Sure, you could serve a pie or two. But what’s the fun in that? If there is anything we know for certain it’s this: people love options. Particularly when several of them are chocolate.

We aren’t saying you should forego the pie (we wouldn’t dare) just consider some new options this year. Serving ware of varying heights makes for a beautiful presentation on a table. Top them with sea salt caramels, peppermint bark, truffles, and even chocolate bars for an unforgettable spread.

Invite guests to enjoy them before and after the meal—because chocolate is the perfect complement to every experience.
