Who wouldn’t love a box of chocolates for the holidays? How about some handmade gourmet chocolates? Ethel M Chocolates would love to be part of your Holiday gatherings this season. These gourmet confections — made without preservatives — hold true to the 100-year-old recipes that Ethel Mars once made for family and friends. Her son founded the company and named it after her!
I have never heard of Ethel M Chocolates even though they are part of the Mars empire. I received three boxes of goodies from their Holiday Collection. These handmade gourmet chocolate gift sets are also available as a “Pick Your Own” box that you can customize with the flavors you like the most.
Holiday Deluxe Collection – (24 pieces) — A variety of Ethel M favorites, plus NEW holiday flavors, each enrobed in rich chocolate: Peppermint Silk, Pecan Pie, Pumpkin Pie, and Egg Nog. Also included are classics like creamy caramels, Almond Crunch and Satin Crèmes. I love chocolate, especially milk chocolate. While I liked the classic flavors, the new holiday flavors were not flavors I would not choose again. My oldest son likes peppermint so he did like the peppermint silk chocolates.
Classic and Chocolate-Covered Pecan Brittle (13 pieces in a holiday box) — Ethel M’s signature brittle has a delicious buttery taste and offers a distinctively softer crunch, thanks to a secret recipe and hand-picked pecans. It’s handcrafted in small batches, in the same kettles used when Ethel M opened in 1981. These are soooo good! I liked the chocolate covered brittle the best, they had a buttery taste with a softer crunch. I would definitely order these again.
Satin Crèmes Collection in a Festive Cactus Garden Box (16 pieces) — The buttery Satin Crèmes filling is made with real cream and stirred by hand, flavored with fresh raspberries, lemon, vanilla, or chocolate and drenched in dark and milk premium chocolate. I decided to save these as they are my mom’s favorite and this would make a nice little Christmas gift for her.
