    For truffle lovers, happy holidays

    Happy Chocolatier’s Open Red Grande Cubze Sampler.
    Happy Chocolatier’s Open Red Grande Cubze Sampler.

    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
