Friendsgiving with Chocolate


From the Black Friday deals to the feasts prepared and enjoyed with family and friends, Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday for many. It may not be too long before its little brother, Friendsgiving, earns its rank among quintessential winter holidays.

Friendsgiving came to prominence in the past few years as a way for those living away from their families to still feel the warm spirit of the holiday, eat well, and be merry with their friends. In fact, Friendsgiving has become so popular, that many people celebrate it in addition to Thanksgiving!

The perfect Friendsgiving menu – with chocolate

When it comes to food, Friendsgiving has all the classics of Thanksgiving: turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and of course, dessert!

Today we’ll focus on our favorite here at Delysia Chocolatier: dessert. Here are three fun ways to sweeten up y0ur Friendsgiving with chocolate this year.

1. Set the scene with chocolate turkeys


Delysia’s Turkey molded chocolate come in dark, milk, and white chocolate and sit under 3 inches tall. Place them at each seat and you’re sure to hear chuckles as everyone gathers round the table.

These chocolate table settings are unique, adorable, and delicious – what’s not to love?

2. Enjoy all the flavors with different chocolate truffles

When it’s time for dessert, Delysia’s chocolate truffles give you an efficient way to serve everyone’s favorite winter flavors, but in perfect little bites. Our Autumn collection chocolate truffles offers the tastes of spicy apple cider, sweet pecan pie, and creamy pumpkin spice into ganaches blended with chocolate.

Looking for something a bit more? Our Thanksgiving gift box includes the Autumn collection chocolate truffles, as well as several pumpkin and turkey molded chocolates.

3. Enjoy a post-dinner drink of hot chocolate

Is there anything cozier than sipping hot chocolate when it’s chilly outside? You’ll find something for everyone with Delysia’s drinking chocolate flavors, from Christmas-y peppermint to classic dark chocolate. Don’t forget the marshmallows.

For those who prefer liquor for their after-dinner cocktail, they can still enjoy with a dash of chocolate thanks to Delysia’s Spirits collection chocolate truffles.

Happy Friendsgiving!
