Everybody has a bit of fondness for the Old West in them, we reckon. And that’s especially true if you’re from Texas. In honor of SXSW and the Austin rodeo taking place this March, we rounded up our best chocolate gifts for the cowboy or cowgirl in your life.


1. Texas chocolate gift box

Texas chocolate gift boxWe’ll start with the granddaddy of them all. The Delysia Chocolatier Texas chocolate gift box includes chocolate truffles, drinking chocolate, and molded chocolates, all inspired by the Lone Star State.

With flavors like salted bourbon pecan and honey chipotle, the chocolate truffles represent the unique tastes of Texas. Next, the cayenne drinking chocolate and pecan cayenne chocolate bark deliver a spicy kick. Finally, a molded chocolate cowboy hat and boot bring personality to the box.

Perfect for: House-warming gifts, parties, any occasion deserving a big Texas welcome


2. Texas chocolate truffles

Texas Hill Country collection chocolate trufflesNext up, Delysia offers a Western twist on the traditional box of chocolates.

The Texas Hill Country collection chocolate truffles are wild and quirky, just like the state capital of Austin. The chocolate truffle centers are infused with smoked salted bourbon pecan, honey chipotle, and Mexican mole.

The Texas collection chocolate truffles also evoke quintessentially Texan scents and flavors, such as fresh lavender, sweet prickly pear, and smooth honey.

Perfect for: state university graduates, Austinites, Tex-Mex lovers, bourbon drinkers, new residents


3. Western-themed molded chocolate gifts

Cowboy boot molded chocolate giftsWe saved the best for last.

Whether it’s a cowboy boot for the horse rider, a cowboy hat for the rancher, or a guitar for the musician, it’s easy to personalize your chocolate gift. Plus, each design comes in a flavor of your choice: white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate.

Perfect for: Birthdays, house parties, anniversaries, welcome gifts
