Happy holidays to all. I've been building up to a candy cane and chocolate crescendo before Christmas this year. Today's chocolate, a  candy cane truffle from Vosges (Chicago, IL), made with 65% dark chocolate, arrived nestled in an attractive, holiday assortment box.

Even though the candy cane bits on top had started to fuse together/melt -- perhaps due to holiday excitement and/or being shipped halfway across the U.S. -- the smooth, dark filling helped pull together the tasting experience.

Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Peppermint Candy Cane Theme Week.
