12 Days of Christmas Candy, Day 12: Julia Baker Confections Box of Holiday Chocolates and Truffles

Oh my, I received this glorious box of Julia Baker hand-crafted Chocolates and Truffles from my dear workmate, Sally. I rarely get to dive into such a variety of delicacies and am attempting to pace myself and actually let the box last awhile. I love that the chocolates come with a map so that I don't have to guess the contents of each sweet. I tried the Passion Fruit first- perfection. Dark rich melty chocolate shell (painted with polka dots!) containing the most dynamic tasting passion fruit cream filling. It was gone in two bites but my head was still exploding from the intense flavor minutes after. The caramel truffles are also beautifully decadent- a buttery liquid caramel that instantly pours out of the truffle upon biting. I recommend the truffles as one-bite treats- otherwise, filling is instantly everywhere except in the mouth! But really, these can't be topped. We'll see how long I can make them last! Thanks, Sally!

Happy 12 Days of Christmas Candy, Dear Readers! Enjoy the holiday!
