A Little Gift for My Readers


The suitcase is packed, the oven is shut off, the lights are dimmed, and I’m off to Hong Kong! It’s been quite a flurry of Christmas card writing and holiday baking, and I’m looking forward to a little rest and relaxation halfway across the world.

I’ve got a few posts tucked away, though, so do check back here in the next week or so for some more of my holiday treats. And in the meantime, I’ve got an early holiday gift for all my wonderful Dessert First readers: 15% off your purchase from Charles Chocolates!

Some of my favorite items from Charles Chocolates:

Hazelnutbar_2 The Candied Hazelnut Bar, which combines sweet candied hazelnuts in a 65% bittersweet chocolate – crunchy, smooth, and delectable.

Tea_box The Tea Collection, truffles infused with Asian teas ranging from robust to floral to fruity – some of the best infused chocolates I’ve encountered.

Winepatefruit The Wine Infused Pâte de Fruit – I am seriously addicted to these sweet little hemispheres of wine. With Gewurtraminer, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Champagne, they’re a heady, delightful treat.

And they’ve unveiled several luscious new items for the holidays:

Holiday_collection The Holiday Collection – Charles Chocolates’ signature edible chocolate box with a cute holiday design. What better gift than one where the box can be eaten?

Rec_4 Mini Chocolate Squares – For your chocolate fix on the go, convenient little five gram squares of indulgence.

Marmalade188 Artisan Marmalades – The blood orange and Meyer lemon marmalades made in-house for Charles’ filled truffles became so popular that now they’re canned and sold on their own! Perfect for breakfast or teatime.

Be sure to visit Charles Chocolates’ site to see the rest of their lineup.

To take advantage of this offer, simply go to Charles Chocolates’ site to place your order. Then type in the promo code DESSERTFIRST when you check out. This offer is good through December 17th.

Don’t forget, you also have a chance to win one of Charles Chocolates fabulous new Boxed Assortments, filled with caramels, truffles, and chocolates, in the Menu for Hope campaign. Check it out here.

Happy holidays to all my dear readers – I hope you enjoy this little gift!
