How do we tell when it’s Christmas in our home? The overwhelming abundance of chocolates, that’s how. It’s one of the few times a year when I feel less guilty about indulging in a few extra pieces. So when we were given some chocolates from Brockmann’s Chocolates to sample, I couldn’t say no! As a truffles lover, I was excited to see that they introduced some new flavours this year just in time for Christmas, Salted Caramel and Dark Sea Salt truffles.
Their Truffini collection consists of premium dark, milk and white truffles that are foil wrapped and available in gift boxes, which are perfectly sized for stocking stuffers. Their traditional flavours include: Cappuccino, Canadian Maple, Hazelnut Praline, Classic Milk, Lime Coconut, English Mint, Double Dark, Orange and Raspberry. I have to say, as much as I love the classics, I am a big fan of their dark sea salt truffles. They also are sold in bulk, and come in 11 flavours at the bulk section of several local fine foods retailers including Save on Foods, Urban Fare, Fresh St Market, London Drugs, Safeway, IGA, Price Smart, Fairway Market, Thrifty Foods, and Nesters.
The Brockmann Family recently released their latest line of chocolate snacks, called Crunchetti. These crunchy, bite-size clusters are made in small batches with toasted almonds and blended with fine-quality chocolate. If Dennis hadn’t stopped me, I would have finished an entire bag by myself. Crunchetti flavours are available in Dark, Milk and White Chocolate with Cranberries, and are available at the following retailers: Save on Foods, Urban Fare, Fresh St Market, Choices, IGA, Price Smart, Fairway Market, and Nesters.

The family run business now includes a third generation of chocolatiers is still guided by Willy’s faithful commitment to quality, using only the freshest, tastiest ingredients in everything they produce.
