Chocolate: A Gift of Indulgence That is Always in Good Taste

Whether you’re shopping for a friend, a family member, or your Secret Santa, Chocolates by Grimaldi has the answer to all of your gift-giving dilemmas this holiday season – because who doesn’t like chocolate?

Their extensive selection of handcrafted gourmet gifts includes chocolate ensembles that are bound to please any palate. Featuring ingredients like buttery caramels and malt balls, as well as their chocolate covered potato chips and pretzels, the sets are designed to make gift giving effortless and delicious. Chocolate covered almonds, toasted coconut, solid foils and Christmas-themed treats are also included in select collections. Customized assortments are also available.

“These collections make the perfect hostess gift for holiday parties,” said Steve Laham, Co-Owner and Operator of Chocolates by Grimaldi in Grand Haven. “Especially for New Year’s Eve, because chocolate pairs perfectly with wine,” he added.

Besides their ensembles, Chocolates by Grimaldi has also introduced a Chocolate-of-the-Month Club. This allows recipients to enjoy their gourmet chocolates year round!  The membership costs $240.00 and allows the recipient to choose $20 of their favorite chocolate treat every month! They could also chose to send the lucky recipient a surprise gift of chocolates each month for 12 continuous months! What a wonderful surprise! (shipping is an extra charge).

For those that prefer to give the gift of an experience, Chocolates by Grimaldi is now offering a creative chocolate class. The 90-minute class allows participants to paint and create their own chocolate bar while socializing with friends and other chocolate enthusiasts.

For $35.00 per person Chocolates by Grimaldi will provide you with the CHOCOLATE and all of the supplies and ingredients needed to paint, flavor, and decorate your own unique chocolate creation. Chocolates by Grimaldi can accommodate up to 24 participants per class. Private classes are available for groups of 10 or more. Call 616-935-7740 to reserve your class today.
