Holiday Happiness in a Chocolate Box!

There are many ways to find happiness. Some pursue fulfilling work. Others take tropical vacations. The more enlightened meditate. However, the true path is simpler. Scientific studies show that chocolate makes people happy! Dark chocolate contains the anti-depressant chemical serotonin and stimulates endorphins that improve mood. Therefore chocolate is the only holiday gift guaranteed to delight!


My Favorite Chocolates from Artisan Chocolatiers in SF:

1.) Recchiuti (One Ferry Building, Shop #30, San Francisco)
           Handmade chocolates with pretty Christmas ornament designs.
     Recchiuti makes exquisite chocolates in the European style.
"Twas the Night Before Christmas" Gift Box filled with 8 caramel-chocolate truffles

2.) Charles Chocolates (535 Florida Street, San Francisco)
Handcrafted artisan chocolates made in San Francisco
          Classic chocolate truffles with fun and festive designs!           
     *Caramel Chocolate with Star Design *Peanut-Butter Praline Butterfly
      *Fleur de Sel Caramel with Snowflake Design *Chocolate Ganache Truffle

Wonderful flavors and presentation! So special and surprising! 
Who wouldn't love to receive this box of chocolates as a gift!?!

I shared this blog with someone on my team and she bought chocolates for all of us from Recchiuti! I could not have been happier and truly enjoyed them. They are as beautiful as they are delicious. Thank you for spreading the word!
