Artisan Confections

Locations: 1025 N. Fillmore St. (Clarendon) and 2910 District Ave. (Mosaic District)

Need a gift for the sophisticated chocoholic in your life? Jason Andelman‘s small-batch confections, made with Valhrona chocolate from France (and, in some cases, booze), are works of art, and they taste as good as they look. This season’s bonbon flavors include gingerbread, chestnut-maple, honey-whiskey (made with Jack Daniels) and Linzertorte (hazelnut praline, raspberry, cinnamon, and Chambord). Other perennial favorites: bittersweet chocolate-raspberry, ancho-chile, chai tea, salted-butter-caramel, and lemongrass.
