Marshmallow, Peanut Butter & Single Origin Chocolates for any budget

chocolatetiers-200802-a.jpgThe February issue of Food & Wine magazine has a great little feature on chocolate tier. The piece takes three types of candies - marshmallow chocolates, peanut butter chocolates, and single origin chocolate - and recommends "high" and "low" choices, depending on your budget.

Here's a Candy Snob overview:

Marshmallow Chocolates:

  • High: Pierre Marcolini - light, airy marshmallows...high-quality dark chocolate...top shelf stuff. Check out marcolini chocolatier.com.

  • Low: Sanborn's Candies' chewy marshmallows are coated with milk chocolate. Go to sanbornscandies.com.
  • Peanut Butter Chocolates:

  • High: Vosges finishes its organic peanut butter-filled chocolates with sea salt, which we loved, when we tried it, by the way. Go to vosgeschocolate.com.

  • Low: We're not huge fans of peanut butter and white chocolate, but Cream-Nut clusters provide smooth texture and solid flavor for the money. Get them at koeze.com.
  • Single-Origin Chocolates:

  • High: Hotel Chocolat's "Purist" line...c'mon, its made with beans from its farm in St. Lucia. Buy them at Hotel Chocolat.
  • Low: Hershey's Cacao Reserve line, which Candy Snob reviewed here, includes four single-origin milk and dark-chocolate options. Go to the Cacao website.
