Sweet Calabacita figs. Whiskey ganache! John & Kira's drunken chocolate figs are just as intoxicating as they sound. Each artisanal fig is filled to the seams with dark 64% Valrhona ganache and coated in a thin layer of dark chocolate. Paired with a selection of John & Kiras' signature chocolate ganache squares, the fig tower is a charming gift if you can muster the willpower to not eat them all yourself.

Origin: United States
Philadelphia-based husband-wife duo John and Kira Doyle are the brains behind one of our very favorite chocolate companies. In fact, Ruth Reichl featured them on the cover of Gourmet magazine way back in 2003.They use premium, artisan ingredients like handpicked Kentucky Colonel Mint, grown by students in community gardens, and raspberries from Glenn Brendle's Green Meadow Farm, a farm working toward powering itself with used vegetable oil from its customers' restaurants.
