For truffle lovers, happy holidays

Before those pesky New Year’s resolutions make you guilty, enjoy the Happy Chocolatier’s Cubze Grand Holiday Sampler gift box ($28.95), containing 16 truffle fudge treats in a four-tier tower that unfolds. Each flavor is wrapped in its own foil color, so you don’t have to bite and hope for the best. The Happy Chocolatier also includes a fortune-cookie-esque “happy statement” with each piece for inspiration. In the variety from this Acton-based company is chocolate walnut, cookies and cream, peanut butter, chocolate raspberry, cappuccino, mint, and more. A nine-piece Silver Sampler gift box ($15.95) is a smaller option. Maybe this holiday season you’ll get one for you and one for me. Available at The Happy Chocolatier, 509 Nagog Park, Acton, 978-429-8485; Lizzy’s Homemade Ice Cream, 29 Church St., Cambridge, 617-354-2911; Candy Castle, 1853 Mass­achusetts Ave., Lexington, 781-862-4499; or go to
