The countdown to Christmas has begun! We couldn't be happier to be included in Forbes' list of Ultimate Chocolate Gifts to give this holiday season. See the complete Gift List >
Michael Recchiuti is celebrating 20 years as San Francisco's premier chocolatier. He's best known for reimagining caramel, blending smoky caramel into dark chocolate ganache for a sensation that's smooth and sublime rather than sticky or chewy. For the holidays, the signature burnt caramel truffle is decorated with mischievous snowmen, while single-origin Criollo truffles are adorned with colorful Christmas trees. Champagne truffles are another limited-edition holiday treat. Rich ganache infused with Schramsberg Blanc de Noirs is coated in a generous dusting of powdered sugar, resembling an arsenal of snowballs that you'll be tempted to keep all for yourself.
