Artisan Candies:
Caramel Confections

Artisan Candies makes classic caramel-based confectionery. The Nibble Editors’ favorites are the Chocolate Caramel Pretzels and the Pecan Toffee. The sweet, salty and chewy pretzels consist of small pretzel twists dipped in handmade soft caramel, then finished with a covering of dark chocolate. The Toffee features tender, crunchy, buttery toffee pieces drenched in dark chocolate and salted pecans.

Crumbzz Cakes:
Gourmet Crumbcake

What could be better than waking up to the cinnamon scent of crumbcake wafting through the house on Mother’s Day morning? The cakes from Crumbzz consist of a gentle yellow cake base with thick, heavy, delicious streusel on top. These yummy cakes are all-natural with no artificial ingredients, preservatives or chemical additives. For added excitement, go for one of the fruit flavors instead of the plain cinnamon. Heat it up slightly in the oven or microwave for a warm breakfast or brunch treat.

Intemperantia Chocolate:

Petite Chocolate Truffles

These mini (about 3/4-inch) chocolate truffles are a fun size that makes indulging without overindulging an easy feat. Made of all-natural ingredients, these truffles are a true classic—the ganache is either simple dark, milk or white chocolate, or is blended with elegant flavors including cappuccino, Grand Marnier and rum; it’s then coated in a chocolate shell and dusted with sugar or cocoa powder. They come packaged in a cheery bright orange textured box—no wrapping required!

Flourless Chocolate Cake

You can’t go wrong with a classic flourless  chocolate cake. Made with Rain Forest Alliance Certified 100% single-origin Ecuadorian chocolate and USDA certified organic sugar, eggs and butter, GateauOChocolat’s version is rich, dense and impossibly chocolaty. It’s topped with a layer of toasted almonds for an elegant presentation and a pleasing bit of crunch; and like all flourless chocolate cakes, it’s gluten- and yeast-free, perfect for moms with wheat or gluten intolerance.

Woodhouse Chocolate:
Mother’s Day Chocolates

Woodhouse Chocolate achieves a remarkable equilibrium: The chocolates are sophisticated enough to please the most demanding connoisseur, but they are not overwhelming to people who prefer tastes that are centered rather than cutting edge. This year, treat Mom with a lovely assortment of Woodhouse Chocolates just for her. Our favorites are the classic Heart Box, full of traditional favorites and eight hearts in limited edition flavors like Mandarin Orange, Coconut Lime, Lemon Lavender and Strawberry Milkshake; and the Mother’s Day Box, an assortment that includes a milk chocolate shoe, a white chocolate flower lollipop, a Happy Mother’s Day peanut butter cup, a box of chewy salted caramels, an I LOVE MOM box and an Espresso Butterfly Bar.
