Caramels from Wildflower:
Hand-made in San Antonio by Ellyn Dixon, these caramels aren’t run-of-the-mill Werther’s Originals. Buttery, soft and combined with organic and local ingredients (including bourbon, honey, coffee, Branchline’s shade oak blonde ale and Pederson Farms bacon), each offers a unique bite. Grab a maple bacon or honey espresso for a sweet jolt. $10 for a dozen, wildflowersa.com.
Truffles from Chocollazo:
Chocolate-lovers know Chocollazo. The tiny trailer-turned-shop owned by Mary and Frank Collazo delivers a plethora of sweets from homemade marshmallow s’mores to crepes, but true cocoa-nnoisseurs will want a handful of truffles to enjoy the holidays with. Flavors change seasonally, but you can’t go wrong with the bacon-German chocolate truffle. Prices vary, 4013 Broadway, chocollazo.com.
