Chocolate + Pili = An Unusual Christmas Treat

Despite the fact that I prefer to bake my presents rather than buy them, there are some items that are so unusual that you can’t help but actually buy them either for yourself or for those you hold dear.
These chocolate-maple pili nuts from Heavenly Chocolates are such an example. Think buttery pili nuts from the Bicol Region tossed in smoky-sweet maple sugar and coated with the shop’s luscious house blend chocolate. A medium tin, as shown above, will set you back PhP 285.00 (about US$ 6.11 at today’s exchange rate), but it’s a small price to pay for a bit of chocolate-coated bliss.
Believe me: your friends will love you for it. 😉
