Those of you who participated in our See's Candies giveaway recently know that I became a major fan of See's on a trip home from San Francisco. Walking into their store was an experience in itself. The counter is filled with rows of different truffles and the walls are covered in candy bars, brittles, lollipops and gift sets. The girl behind the counter offered a free taste taste which was a fun surprise. See's rich and creamy chocolate has stuck with me since my trip, so I couldn't wait to try the chocolates that we picked out through their online shopping site this week.
Assorted Peppermints: Our Assorted Peppermint Box came with 12 giant peppermint patties--6 milk chocolate and 6 dark chocolate. We were really surprised at how large these pieces are. One piece was definitely enough to satisfy my sweet tooth after dinner, with plenty left for later! Check out the photo of the peppermint patty next to the quarter to get an idea of just how large these pieces are.
Chocolate Walnut Fudge: I love all chocolate and nuts combos and this fudge is no exception. You can tell that they use heavy cream and fresh butter in this fudge because it's so rich and creamy. Since it comes in a large box, we thought it would be perfect to cut into bite-size pieces and make a dessert platter for our get-together this past week. As tempting as it was to claim I made the fudge myself when our friends asked, I had to own up to the fact that it was from See's. Apparently, See's has been a long-time family favorite for lots of our friends!
Truffles Box (8 oz): Key Lime, Coffee, Chocolate Raspberry, Blueberry...the list goes on. These truffles are so decadent that they would make a really special gift as a thank-you, birthday, or any other occasion.
