Madeline Chocolate Company: Make These The Sweetest Holidays Ever!

Great Stocking Stuffer!
2012 Holiday Gift Guide Selection

   December 8th begins the eight night Festival of Lights in the Jewish religion, the holiday of Hanukkah.  In just a few more weeks Christmas will arrive.  People are shopping for gifts, decorations and food for the celebrations.  While much focus is on gifts, we can’t forget another fun tradition, the stockings!  I can remember as a child having a Hanukkah stocking and looking forward to finding out what was inside just as much as I wanted to open those colorfully wrapped gifts.  Children everywhere love discovering the treats in their stockings early Christmas morning.  This year fill their stocking with delectable treats from the Madeline Chocolate Company!

   For over 60 years, the Madeline Chocolate Company out of New York has been creating delicious, top-quality chocolates in every shape and design for very holiday and special occasion.  From Christmas to Valentine’s Day, birthdays to graduations, they make each occasion even sweeter!  Large chocolates, small chocolates, solid or cream filled, the Madeline Chocolate Company has the perfect treat everyone will love to eat! 
   Finding the perfect treat is easy as their website is divided into specific holidays so you can quickly find what you are seeking.  Since my family celebrates both Hanukkah and Christmas, the Madeline Chocolate Company generously sent me some chocolates from both collections. 
  They have a great selection of Hanukkah chocolates including Silver Coins, Blue and Silver stars, traditional Hanukkah gelt, and even Blue and White Chocolate Malt Milk Balls.   My personal favorite are the Chanukah Disks which are solid milk chocolate disks that are wrapped in colorful Italian foils.  The foil wrappers are decorated with various Hanukkah designs such as dreidles, menorahs, Star of David’s and the Hebrew letters for Hanukkah.  They are approximately 2” in diameter and about 3/16” in width.  Of course, for the purpose of review only I had to try one to make sure they passed my taste inspection!  The verdict? As soon as I opened the foil I could smell the rich chocolate aroma.  The disk was smooth except for a pattern of raised dots around the outside edge.  It had a rich milk chocolate taste that practically melts in your mouth!  Delicious!

   Their Christmas selection is huge!  Everything from milk chocolate balls to solid chocolate Santa ornaments, bells, stars cute keepsake boxes filled with chocolates and gift sets such as their Christmas Mint Truffle Gift Box.  After much deliberation and mind-changing, I choose the incredibly cute Snowman Giftable.   This cute keepsake is a clear plastic container stuffed full of caramel filled milk chocolate balls.  Both the bottom and top of the container has white cardboard ‘lids’ with blue snowflakes, and the top lid has a cute snowman’s head with a scarf and matching knit cap.  There are about 16 little foil-wrapped caramel-filled chocolate balls inside the container, each wrapper decorated with a snowman’s head.  Again, strictly for the purpose of review, I was obligated to sample the product.  My verdict?  Once unwrapped, the small almost egg-shaped chocolate had a wonderful aroma, and its smooth surface had a pattern of lines radiating out from the center.  Hard on the outside, the sweet milk chocolate is filled with creamy, buttery caramel.  Absolutely delectable!  This is perfect for a stocking stuffer or a small gift, and the left over container can be used year after year as a decoration, centerpiece or candy bowl!
