Mini chocolate bars from Neuhaus are a staple in my purse. (You just never know when you're going to have chocolate cravings.) They're $3 a bar and small enough that you can finish the whole bar and still have room for dessert. All sorts of flavors are offered, but I rotate between three.
There's the Speculoos bar, where milk chocolate is mixed with crushed speculoos—those crispy, cinnamon cookies from Belgium. Snap off a square and break into the praliné interior, a creamy, easy melting indulgence. Fans of the delicate crunch from the speculoos bar are bound to fall for the Feuilletine bar, also combined with a milk chocolate base. Feuilletine are crunchy little wafers, and Neuhaus uses ones from Brittany, buttery crushed sweet flakes. With all the variety, it's key to keep a classic in your repertoire, and you can do just that with the smooth dark chocolate Praliné bar, a tried and true pairing of almond and hazelnut praliné.
