Get Festive with Tasty Stocking Stuffers, Signature Gift Sets and Snowman Cream Puffs 


Delight the chocolate lovers on your list with a culinary journey to the City of LightBETA5 Chocolates‘ 2016 holiday collection, Christmas in Paris, pays tribute to one of the world’s most romantic, delicious and historic cities. The holiday collection is a celebration in itself, ideal for sharing (or not) with family, friends and colleagues. Available in six and twelve piece chocolate boxes, the Christmas in Paris collection can be purchased in-store and online as of November 22.

BETA5 owner/pastry chef/chocolatier, Adam Chandler’s holiday creations also include a Snowman Cream Puff and Douglas Fir Eclair whose French connection may require some explanation. Putting a holiday spin on a classic French pastry, La Religiuse – the role of the Nun is played by a whimsical Snowman. And since every holiday needs a yule log, Chandler’s Douglas Fir Eclair offers a personal sized, West Coast twist to the classic bûche de Noël. Both of these pastries are available in-store only as of December 3.

There is also the unmissable Peppermint Crunch Polygon Bar, Spiced Pecan Pebbles, and, the gift you didn’t even know you wanted, a Lump of Coal! Despite what your mother told you, this year getting a lump of coal ends up being a delicious blend of dark rum caramel, eggnog ganache and spiced praline in a dark chocolate shell.

Proving the perfect holiday dessert, stocking stuffer or table showpiece, BETA5 Chocolates adds beautiful, delicious creativity to every affair. Read on for full details on what can be found in each delicious bite.
