This time of year can be a bit depressing. The cold weather’s not over, but the awards season is. Spring clothes aren’t in yet, and resort wear’s picked thin.
Valentine’s Day has passed, yet Halloween’s eons away.
Just because you’re between kisses and candy corns doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a good confection. Valerie Confections’ handmade toffees are delectable and stylish — perfect for the dreaded ‘tween time.
The square candies, which come in flavors like classic toffee, almond fleur de sel, mint, and ginger, are made of bittersweet or milk chocolate and topped with special ingredients, like crystallized ginger, dried mint leaves, or candied orange peel. And Valerie’s sweet packaging — adorable ivory boxes bound in signature brown and pink polka-dotted grosgrain ribbons — may remind you of all those spring clothes you’ve yet to buy.
But don’t despair — that time will come.
In the meantime, eat, eat, and be merry.
