I was super excited when that Gold box arrived!! Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Home-Fashioned Chocolates!!! It was a rare occasion because I was all alone, all 3 kiddos were in school, and the hubby was at work. I opened up that beautiful box and was greeted by the comforting aroma of those delectable chocolates. For a moment I contemplated keeping that entire box to myself! Yep, they smelled that good! And after reviewing the map of the home-fashioned chocolates made with fresh whipping cream and butter (no preservatives), I decided what would be the harm in just taking one, or two? I would simply remove the wrapper and no one would know they ever existed. Great plan, right!? Wrong!
One or two became three or four, and before I knew it I had eaten five!! There is just something too darn exciting about tasting the goodness hidden inside each chocolate…..raspberry cream, rum Victoria, coconut mound, chocolate truffle, haystack, need I go on? I apologize if your mouth is watering! In addition to the chocolates I also received 4 chocolate bars. So, yeah, I ate one of those too! But in all fairness it was an Almond Dark Chocolate Truffle…like I am supposed to have any willpower after reading that! And I would have stopped at the first bite but it was their fault it tasted so good! Haha! It was seriously so smooth, melt-in-your-mouth delicious with a bit of crunch from the almonds, heaven!!!
You will be happy to know that I did save some for the family and let the kiddos pick out a piece after dinner. They had to eat their vegetables first! A total ‘do as I say’, not ‘as I do’ type of situation. But we will keep that just between us. Haha! The kiddos had so much fun picking theirs out and enjoyed every last bite…one even licked the wrapper, so she takes after her mother. LOL!
I am thinking about bringing these in lieu of wine or cookies to holiday parties. These would make perfect hostess gifts! And if you’re lucky the hostess will sit them out for you to enjoy too! Or teacher’s gift! Stocking stuffer! Spread the chocolate cheer to all!!
