Take your pick from a selection of Chocolate Cream Rolls by Li-Lac Chocolates, a West Village classic that has been around since 1923. Each roll measures about two inches long, and range from $2.75-3.50 apiece. That's the Classic Mousse Roll at left, a gentle and creamy whipped milk chocolate ganache dipped in dark chocolate. The French Roll on the right comes with a walnut-dotted dark chocolate center. My favorite of the set is the Hazelnut Truffle Roll—I'm generally not a milk chocolate fan, but gladly bend my rules for this utterly smooth Nutella-like milk chocolate and hazelnut ganache. No final dip in chocolate with this one; just a complete roll in finely ground almonds.
