Gifts We Love: Krishon Chocolates

The secret to Eric Johnson’s ultra-smooth confections? The Alexandria chocolatier makes his own butter from locally produced organic cream. A box of five truffles ($17) includes an extraordinary caramel-coconut variety—Johnson spends days coddling his caramel over the stove to achieve the right depth of flavor. We’re also fans of the dark-chocolate Krishon Krunch sprinkled with dried goji berries ($7 an ounce)—ruby-colored fruits from Tibet that give the candies a festive, seasonal appearance.
