These artisan Christmas chocolates are some of the cutest confections for the holiday season we’ve ever seen. An Enchanted Forest with a cast of chocolate characters, beautiful baubles and traditional holiday subjects that are so beautifully sculpted, they’re almost too cute to eat.
Artisan Christmas Chocolates
An artisan chocolatier rooted in the Angevin tradition, La Petite Marquise puts all its know-how at the service of Christmas magic by imagining chocolates and confectionery made with gourmet flavors and natural fruit dyes in exceptional shapes for La Maison Du Quernon artisan chocolates of Angers.
Their edible “enchanted forest” consists of chocolate versions of your favorites woodland creatures: a snowy white owl, a red fox, an adorable deer in a turtleneck and a bear in a cozy sweater. Add to that a trio of mushrooms and a snow covered tree made of baubles and snowflakes.
The Essential Christmas Characters
Then there are the essential Christmas and winter subjects with colorful casts (Santa Claus, Santa Claus, Christmas tree, penguin, etc.) garnished with Quernons or dark chocolate, milk or dulcey frying.
The special blue chocolate versions are the brand’s nod to their signature color inspired by the roofs of castles, residences and houses in Anjou that have been elegantly adorned with slate for over ten centuries. This blue schist stone is extracted in particular in the quarries of Trélazé not far from the center of Angers. Known for remarkable quality, Anjou slate is recognized throughout France and the rest of the world.
