Chocolate.org Review & Giveaway!


Welcome to the "For the Love of Mom" Giveaway Hop hosted by Mama's Baby Cupcakes & Mommy's Favorite Things. The theme of this event is great gifts for mother's, and each blog participating has a prize valued at $25+. This hop is April 6-20 and your winnings arrive just in time for Mother's Day! 


Chocolate.org features handmade, artisan chocolate gifts from world-class chocolate vendors. We bring together the chocolate chef and the gift buyer to form a unique marketplace. We believe that the finest chocolate is found in small chocolate shops around the globe. We celebrate the fact that every chef has a unique approach. In many cases, our vendors provide a product that is more fresh, more artistic, and less common than factory-made chocolate.

I'd had my eye on Chocolate.org for quite a while, and after talking back and forth, now was the perfect time to work together. Mother's Day will be here before we know it, and I wanted to showcase this great company in plenty of time for my readers to purchase if they see fit and get their items on time. 


After looking around to find just the right item to review, I decided to go with Veronica's Treats and their 12 classic design cake truffles. I really love chocolate and I thought the cake truffles would be a good combination of my second favorite dessert, cake! I look forward to birthday parties for our girls because I get to order a birthday cake, so I was intrigued to try the cake truffles and see what they are all about! 



I wasn't expecting these truffles to be as big as they were, but it was a nice surprise. I like how all the outsides are different with sprinkles and designs, and then I got really excited to open them up and see what the inside was like. 

After cutting these decent sized truffles in half, you can see above that they have moist chocolate cake inside. They're a bit oily on the bottom and the cake is a little heavy, but its nice and rich and a great treat when craving that late night snack or chocolate fix.


Our two oldest girls love chocolate like I do, so a couple different nights when they were being especially good and ate all their dinner, I'd cut a truffle in half and have them share it. I decided on this because the first time I ate a whole one, it was a bit much, so cutting in half for our children meant they'd get a nice treat, without a tummy ache or sugar rush after.

Our 3yr old didn't care for these much, but our youngest daughter is quite sneaky and could always spot when I had one. Even if she only got one little bite, she was determined to chase me until I gave in. This is where the chocolate shell came in to play with her because it was easy for her to eat, soft to chew, and tasted good without the rich cake inside settling on her tummy.


You can find this set of truffles and so many other options directly on the chocolate.org website. They have categories to find just what you're looking for, and price point options if you're on a budget. They also offer special holiday sections for more specific items like new baby, weddings, and holidays.

You can also connect with them on social media through Facebook and Twitter!
