The best term I can come up with to describe Recchiuti Confections products is…adult chocolates. By that I mean a chocolate taste that is so esoteric, so exotic, you would never dare waste them on the unrefined taste of a toddler. Nor are they to be presented to anyone but those about whom you are very serious, and who are very serious about their chocolate.
The flavours here are like none you will find elsewhere – amazing varieties of pure chocolate from places like Venezuela and Madagascar. There are chocolates filled or flavoured with lemon verbena, cardamom, or rose caramel. You have to take it slowly – you have to let the small delicate pieces melt in your mouth, and let those rich flavours develop and meld together. Then open your eyes and come back into the world. They are that good.
In addition to the chocolates sold by single pieces or in elegantly boxed collections, some, for example, selected for pairing with red wine or whiskey, Recchiuti also offers fleur de sel caramels, chocolate coated fruits, peanut butter “pucks”, sauces and even hand made s’mores kits (if you have to ask, you should). Remember, these are not chocolates for children…and really – only for very select, very lucky adults. “Little Nib” location also now in Potrero.
