In true holiday spirit, Alexandra Clark, the chocolate empress behind the growing Bon Bon Bon empire has released her winter collection. Each decadent rectangle is filled with holiday favorites like pecan pie, with dark caramel custard ganache, toasted pecans, croquant and salt; gingerbread, with spiced molasses milk chocolate caramel, and gingerbread crumbles; and Reindeer Food, with cranberry, black currant & toasted oat rum ganache, and edible glitter (that's exactly what we imagined reindeer food to be).
If you're working downtown and headed to lunch break, forget the Potbelly Sandwich Shop and stop by the Chrysler House building location and grab a bon, or 10. And speaking of grabbing some wintery goodies, if you have any friends in New York who've only been able to read about Clark's confections in periodicals like Vanity Fair, Martha Stewart and Tasting Table, let them know that Bon Bon Bon will be available there for a very brief window. Clark will be vending this weekend at The Victory Market's holiday shop at Bowery and Kenmare Street. The popup takes place 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
Enough choco-talk though, we've got more pictures shot by Michelle and Chris Gerard that'll make you drool all over the keyboard.
