Gratuitous Sexiness: Trays of Chocolates

I'm not normally big on chocolate, but these bonbons from Sucre are addicting. My favorites are the Wedding Cake, a decadent white chocolate and toasted almond ganache treat covered in swirled gold and ivory white chocolate (so amazing, I bought a purse of them); the Avery, which is dark chocolate with a creamy caramel and milk chocolate ganache center, enhanced with just a bit of coarse sea salt; and the Earl Gray, which has a white chocolate ganache heart, infused with tea and topped with a hand-painted chocolate plaquette. At $2 a piece, though, it's as expensive of a habit as drugs. But who cares?
