Chocolate gift boxes are the present that can't go wrong: they are appropriate for any special occasion, any time, for people of any age. Chocolate has come a long way from a bitter ceremonial drink in Central America to the world's favorite flavor. Until someone comes up with a taste that more people love, chocolate gift boxes will continue to be a welcomed treat.

The Aztecs are the first people to use chocolate. They ground the seeds of the cacao tree into a paste, mixed it with spices and water, and created a drink that people couldn't get enough of. Spanish explorers took the delicacy to Europe where it eventually became a food, not a drink; in time, chocolate making became an intricate and prized process.

You Can't Go Wrong with Chocolate Gift Boxes

Today, chocolate runs the gamut from low-end candy bars filled with--ugh--rice crispies, to gourmet varieties using only the finest ingredients. It is these hand-crafted premium candies that are highly valued. Everything from the chocolate itself (no preservatives or hydrogenated vegetable oils) to the fillings to the foil and the box are made with quality in mind.

The variety within chocolate gift boxes lets everyone enjoy them. Cordial cherries sit next to chocolate covered caramels, rich ganache-filled ones are next to creamy hazelnut pralines. Chocolatiers who make all natural candies can generally make specialty chocolates, too, like sugar free or non dairy varieties. If you search around, you can even find low carbohydrate chocolates that let one satisfy their sweet tooth while they stay on their diet.
