Truffles with alcohol from La Maison Du Chocolat

This French sweets boutique churns out glistening bonbons and handmade truffles that literally melt in your mouth. Rich flavors, like raspberry, mint and hazelnut, complement (rather than overpower) the addictive bitterness of dark and milk chocolates.

Michelin-starred Gabriel Kreuther’s chocolates are a feast for both the eyes and the palate. Bonbons (in flavors like bananas Foster, peanut butter pretzel cassis and grapefruit yogurt) come speckled in vibrant colors and abstract patterns that would give Jackson Pollock a run for his money.

Jacques Torres Chocolates

The French-born pastry chef Torres has created a mini-empire in NYC with his sought-after chocolates, now spanning several shops around town. Hot chocolate, chocolate bars, artisanal pieces, chocolate brittle and more are available at his stores. For those who are certifiable chocoaholics, you will want to visit the Hudson Street location, where you can find the Chocolate Museum, which includes the history of chocolate, learn about the making of chocolate, from tree to store and even have a chocolate workshop.
