A scrumptious two-bite chocolate turkey, delivered in a beautiful gift box from Burdick Chocolate.
For the Thanksgiving dinner table, we have long used chocolate “place settings,” a [confusing] name given to a party favor presented at each place setting [of flatware and dishes].
For many who follow this tradition, the place setting is a chocolate turkey. Some people add a ribbon or a tag that substitutes for a name card.
A couple of years ago, thinking “We’re all sophisticated adults,” we chose bottles of artisan maple syrup instead. The universal response: “Where’s the chocolate turkey?”
This year we’re using boxed miniature turkeys from chocolatier Larry Burdick.
Each chocolate turkey has a center of dark chocolate ganache and toasted almonds for feathers. It is enrobed in either dark or milk chocolate.
Each turkey is only a couple of bites—very satisfying but not “too much.”
It is presented in a lovely gift box with a satin ribbon, like an edible jewel.
You can also purchase boxes of four turkeys.
Burdick is one of the country’s great chocolatiers; so even when it’s not a holiday, treat yourself to some.
