As a minimalist, I like to splurge on consumables. One brief, shining moment of glory and then they’re gone, leaving behind only a happy memory. As a chocolate lover, I’m always on the prowl for something fresh and unusual featuring the beloved bean. Because my browser knows me so well, it recently alerted me to this adorable coffin (do you think those two words have ever been used together before?) from Moonstruck Chocolate Co. in Oregon. Packed with monstrously delicious truffles like Frankenstein Toffee, Popping Praline Mummy, Blood Orange Devil, and Crème Brûlée Werewolf, this collection is as delightful as it is frightful.
Since I was already splurging, I decided to add their 6-piece Flavors of Fall Collection to the mix. Fall is my favorite time of year, so what could be better than the flavors of fall interpreted in chocolate? Pecan Pie, Pfeffernüsse Spice, Harvest Almond Praline, and Pumpkin Pie—hold me! I wish I could tell you that I swooned over these chocolates, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to eat one yet. They are so beautiful that I may have turned into a filthy hoarder like Kirsti, unable to use things up and thereby end the anticipatory glee.
My order was delivered just days ago, but it appears that the company has already run out of Haunted House coffins, since they are no longer featured on the website. However, the individual truffles are still available, along with 4-piece Pumpkin Patch and Monster Mash Collections and a 5-piece Spooky Spider Collection. Moonstruck ships on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays and offers 2-Day and Next Day shipping options, so there’s still time to get your monster truffles by Halloween if you order in the next couple of days.
In the meantime, I plan to bury these chocolates in my mouth, so I hope that biting into a werewolf doesn’t have the same effect as being bitten by one, because I’ve been well and truly moonstruck.
Stuff Worthy Of Our Notice™ in this post:
I am happy to say that, having sampled each of the offerings in the Haunted House and Flavors of Fall collections from Moonstruck, these chocolates are to swoon for. They have some of the creamiest truffles I’ve ever tasted. My favorite might have been the milk chocolate pumpkin, which has a touch of pumpkin pie spice in the dusting of sugar on the outside. The Frankenstein has so much detail and expression that I could hardly bear to bite into him…but I did, and it was electrifying.
You may have missed the opportunity to sample their Halloween and Fall collections, but their Classic Truffle Collection is available year-round, along with a variety of other chocolates. Be sure to keep an eye out for their upcoming holiday collections.
Tonight’s rare Harvest Moon is a reminder that it’s time once again to Ask for the Moonstruck. Their Haunted House Collection usually sells out quickly, so get your coffin before these confections are dearly departed. 👻
