Candy canes, peppermints, candied nuts, chocolate coins, endless varieties of Christmas cookies—the sheer volume of sweet offerings this time of year is enough to keep you in a sugary haze all month long.
If you’re going to indulge this holiday season, you might as well opt for the good stuff. That’s why this year we’re stuffing our stockings with decadent, wintry chocolates. You’ve got to try these seasonal sweets before they’re gone!
Theo Cranberry Orange Chocolate Bar
Didn’t get enough of the cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving? Sneak a piece of Theo’s cranberry and orange bar—the seasonal fruits bring tons of bright flavor to a dark chocolate base.
Salazon Dark Chocolate With Gingerbread
This fair-trade dark chocolate bar combines chai tea with all the spicy warmth of fresh gingerbread. If you’re guilty of snapping the roof off the gingerbread house every year, this one’s for you.
Taza Spiked Eggnog
Save this one for the grown-ups—it’s spiked with just a hint of rum. Perfect for anyone who loves nutmeg and the creaminess of eggnog—but can’t quite commit to a full mug of the stuff—will be hooked on Taza’s organic and fair-trade bar.
Divine Milk Chocolate With Spiced Cookies
A good pick for milk chocolate fans, this bar is filled with bits of spice cookies and best enjoyed with an ice-cold glass of milk for the complete milk-and-cookies experience.
Chocolove Fruit and Nut Bar
With so many seasonal fruits and nuts—cherries, currants, orange, ginger, walnuts, hazelnuts, and pecans—this dark chocolate treat is practically healthy, right? Or at least a good excuse to skip the fruitcake.
