Seattle Chocolates San Juan Sea Salt Truffle Bar 

I’m a total sucker for chocolate and sea salt. This 2.5 oz. all-natural chocolate bar from Seattle Chocolates features crunchy toffee and sea salt in luscious milk chocolate. The flavor is the perfect blend of sweet and salty. As an added bonus, this treat uses Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa. Yum!

Chocolate Almond Smackaroon

Talk about decadent! This yummy dessert from Smackaroon is a super delicious coconut almond confection. It’s also hand-dipped in rich dark chocolate which totally puts it over the top. Smackaroons are dairy free and made fresh in Philadelphia. I love this fresh twist on a classic dessert.

Lark’s Fine Foods Russian Tea Cakes 

Russian Tea Cakes are one of my favorite types of cookies. This traditional holiday cookie is nutty, buttery and lightly coated in confectioner’s sugar. The taste is  buttery and the cookie melts in your mouth. Lark Fine Foods offer high-quality fresh-baked cookies with all natural ingredients.

Orange Glad Itty Bitties Shortbread

These shortbread cookies from Orange Glad are oh-so adorable! I love the cute little flower shapes. This shortbread is on the softer side, compared to the crisper, more traditional recipe. The small size makes the cookies really fun to eat and I love the rich flavor. I think it’s great that Orange Glad makes its own desserts.

verdict

My March Orange Glad box arrived a bit late, but the variety of artisan sweet treats totally made up for it. I was so fun to sample all of these delicious desserts. My favorite item from this shipment is the  Seattle Chocolates San Juan Sea Salt Truffle Bar . The chocolate is so decadent and I enjoyed the addition of the sea salt. So good! Did you receive the March Orange Glad box? What did you think about these desserts? Let me know.
