For those who like to plunge into a box of chocolates (or nibble delicately, one piece at a time), Martine’s fuchsia boxes offer 9, 18, 36 or 72 pieces of molded chocolates in the Belgian style, from Callebaut’s fine couverture. The Cacao Bean piece contains cacao nibs, while others have finely chopped pecans, almonds or hazelnuts.
Cacao Bean: Milk or dark chocolate with cacao nibs for crunch
Crown: Milk or dark chocolate with chopped pecans
Fleur-de-Lis: Solid dark chocolate molded to shape
Marquise: Milk or dark chocolate with chopped almonds
Nest: Milk or dark chocolate with coconut “twigs” (top center of photo at right, this is Martine’s personal favorite, and if you love coconut, you’ll probably agree)
Swirl: Milk or dark chocolate with chopped hazelnuts
Three Stripes: Solid milk chocolate molded to shape
Although Martine’s sugar-free chocolate selection does not yet include varieties with cream centers, we’re crossing our fingers. Meanwhile, we’ll be munching on some tasty chocolate and eagerly awaiting the next creation (sugar-free or not) to emerge from Martine’s kitchen.
Chocolates in classic Belgian chocolate shapes,
The chocolates are handmade daily at two retail locations in Manhattan, and can be shipped around the world. The sugar-free chocolate bars and almond bark will last for two months at a cool temperature, while the other sugar-free chocolates, like any fine chocolates made without preservatives, are at their peak for about two weeks.
If you’re ready for a chocolate treat without the sugar, Martine is ready to oblige.
