Favors Worth Hoarding

We think the best favors are the tastiest ones, so of course we’re obsessed with Goddess of Cacao, 215-680-3324, scentbyalexis.com/goddessofcacao. Co-owners Sheilagh Karl and Sam Jacobson’s collection of decadent truffles made with rich ganache can be customized and (should you manage to not eat all of them) boxed in twos or fours for your guests. Since the duo has yet to create a storefront, they will come to you for a tasting session. You can also select from a long list of ready-made confections like their signature truffle, "Goddess of Cacao": milk chocolate, ancho chili and cinnamon ganache dipped in dark chocolate and dusted with ancho chili powder. Can you say "yum?" Prices are dependent on ingredients and packaging.
