all of dean & deluca's sweets are super tasty; brought together in this cute package, your mom will be in dessert heaven!
dark, milk and white 'hot chocolate' on a stick. $9 for 3 pack.
pop bar is one of my favorite spots in the city for a summer cool down; these hot chocolate sticks are their recent foray into cold weather treats. with our recent dreary weather, these could be put to immediate use!
löffle mich (cake in a cup). 2 euro each.
since my german is not so good, I can't tell you too much about these jarred single serving cakes except that I spotted them here and they were too adorable not to share!
mast brothers chocolate bars. $40 for 5.
artisan chocolate made by hand in brooklyn by two of the most beardy bros ever. it has, hands down, the prettiest packaging I have ever seen on anything edible, not to mention mouth-watering flavors like sea salt or black truffle.
super pop cakes ice cream. $60 for 5 pints.
jenis splendid ice cream has the brilliant idea of mixing big tasty chunks of cake into their pints with supposedly delicious results. a bit pricey, but perfect for the mom who views dessert as a decadent special occasion treat.
wild raspberry honey. $14 for 10.5 ounces.
so your mom somehow (against all odds) manages a kryptonite-like aversion to dessert. enter this raw varietal honey: a great addition to tea, baked goods and marinades and delicious enough to eat by the spoonful.
