Mom is a chocoholic -- even her license plate is personalized "CHOCLT." She prefers dark over milk, and isn't thrilled by added nuts, fruits, or liquers. She is disciplined and enjoys and shares the occasional truffles or artistically decorated pieces, which are preferred over bars. But it is hit-and-miss; she has enjoyed some of the simpler confections over some of the more expensive. Depth of the chocolate flavor seems to be key.
I'd like to send her some chocolate for the holidays. She lives in St. Louis, if that matters. I'd like to hear people's suggestions as to mail-order chocolates or truffles that might really make her smile. Price isn't necessarily the key -- she has enjoyed some from Trader Joes and Sees, it seems, as much as a couple of the hoity-toity artisinal chocolate I've sent her. Your experiences, and even weblinks, would be appreciated.
