Welcome to Mythical Kitchen Picks, the series in which the culinary experts from Mythical Kitchen tell you all about their favorite foods and ingredients—and food gifts! We asked the team of Kitcheneers for their favorite edible and potable presents. If you’re in need of a last-minute gift, you’ve come to the right place. Today, Nicole Enyati is here to recommend the best chocolate to gift for the holidays. It’s shiny. It’s nutty. And boy oh boy is there a lot of it.
Nicole’s Pick: Ferrero Rocher 48 Piece Gift Box
You’ve all heard about magpies, right? The cute birds that love to steal shiny things from people and keep them as their own? This gift box of 48 gold-wrapped chocolates is guaranteed to steal a heart or two! It’s probably the classiest gift you can get from a drugstore, other than daily vitamins or Abreva. Nothing says, “I care deeply about you this holiday season,” like a box of luxurious golden nuggets of goodness.
The sheer volume of Ferrero Rocher confections in this gift box is enough to guarantee a huge response to whomever receives it. I personally always have a few of these boxes on hand to give to family members, or when I’m going over to a friend or aquantinece’s house during the holiday season. It’s a classic that will make even the grinchiest of people smile.
The best part? No surprises! You know exactly what you’re getting: hazelnutty, chocolaty goodness. I’ve never met a person who hasn’t had (and loved) a Ferrero Rocher, and if I have, they are probably children. Can you imagine the childlike wonderment of handing off a box of chocolates like this to a kid for the first time? Experiencing the layers of chocolate, crunch, and nuts—my gosh. If the size seems a bit much, they have other iterations of golden gifts guaranteed to fit any price point. Get this for the special golden stars in your life.
