Chocolate Pizza Company: Peanut Butter Sparklers, 2 oz. – Buy a 22-pc box for $55.00

I think this is the greatest sweet treat I have ever had! It looks like a chocolate covered pretzel, but when you break off a piece of that chocolate you will find that there is peanut butter inside. Yes, a pretzel, followed by a layer of peanut butter, and then a layer of chocolate. Then you have the festive M&M’s and peanut butter kisses to really put this snack over the edge into incredible! I was nice and shared this with my son and husband, but I could have eaten this all on my own in a matter of seconds. Send more, please!

Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Co.: No 10 Peppermint Bark, 3.5 oz. – Retail Value $4.95

I love peppermint on its own, but for some reason, I don’t like peppermint with chocolate. I really wish I did though because this bar of peppermint bark looked incredible! The swirls of white and dark chocolate mixed with the crumbles of peppermint were almost too pretty to eat. I tried a piece and the chocolate was extra creamy and oh so sweet. My husband is obsessed, and I mean obsessed with peppermint and chocolate so he claimed this lovely bar.

Fran’s Chocolates Smoked Salt Caramels, 0.9 oz. – Buy 7 bites for $15.00

Another incredible treat! These bites are made with rich chocolate, creamy caramel, and are topped with a smoked sea salt. You really get hit with the salt flavors at first, and then quickly get that rich sweetness from the chocolate and caramel. This little box of caramels was so divine! They also would make the perfect gift for someone, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Just one of these caramels is not enough, the sweet saltiness will send you back to finish the whole box!

A Couple of Squares Inc.: Gingerbread Man, 2.4 oz. – Estimated Value $5.00

This little gingerbread man was almost too cute to eat, almost! I love how perfectly dressed he is with the icing. The cookie itself was so large, plenty to share with someone. The flavors were very consistent with a gingerbread cookie, nothing too fancy, but just a delicious spice and yummy frosting that made this guy extra sweet. I did think the cookie was a bit hard for my liking, I am a soft cookie type of person, but my husband was happy to devour what little bit of the cookie I didn’t finish!

Hot Chocolate + Marshmallow Bar, 1oz. – Estimated Value $2.50

I thought I found my favorite sweet of all time, and then this little bar came along. A few of the ingredients that make this treat so incredible include dark chocolate, a vanilla bean marshmallow, and sea salt. The outer shell of dark chocolate is so crumbly and has that bittersweetness that I love. Inside, there’s a layer of a thick dark chocolate with a huge layer of marshmallow that is flavored with vanilla bean. I honestly can’t put into words how much I loved this treat, it was the perfect cold-weather snack!

Verdict: This month’s Sweets GiftBox was incredible! I rarely meet a sweet treat that I don’t at least enjoy, but this month’s curation was amazing and so delicious. It screamed holidays and made me feel so warm and cozy. Plus, each of the treats were so rich and decadent, they all felt so special which is exactly how you want to feel this time of year. For me, the December Sweets GiftBox was the best I have tried so far from them!

Value Breakdown: This box is $25.00 a month, which averages out to $5.00 per item for the five snacks I received. While I do think the average cost per item is a bit high and doesn’t meet what I was able to find online, this month’s box really showed a unique curation of treats. Overall, I think the value comes in from receiving gourmet treats that you normally wouldn’t find at a local store.
