Chocolatier Blue

If you're looking for foodie gifts for the holidays that are both tasty and aesthetically pleasing, Chocolatier Blue might be a good place to stop in. These artisan, hand-crafted chocolates are made with organic ingredients and come in all sorts of classic flavors -- and also a few unexpected ones. The flavors are seasonal, so right now expect to find eggnog, chestnut, gingerbread, and hazelnut. My personal favorite, unexpectedly, was the peanut butter and strawberry jam combo. And good news for the purists on your gift list, Chef Chris Blue doesn't use any artificial flavorings, extracts, or preservatives. (Expect the shelf life of these candies to only be about a week.) You can find his confections at either of Chocolatier Blue's two locations, both in Berkeley.
