One of the most exciting parts about the holidays is the anticipation leading up to them—which is why we love a good
advent calendar. These countdowns offer a unique opportunity to have a treat and look forward to all the celebrations ahead.
To sweeten the surprise, many of our favorite retailers are selling chocolate advent calendars full of our go-to gourmet chocolates and chocolate-centric candies. Brands like Lindt, Williams Sonoma, and Compartés have options filled with decadent chocolate truffles, world-renowned peppermint bark, and even steamy hot chocolate mixes. We even found a calendar that caters specifically to Elf fans (just try to avoid downing the entire thing while you’re watching the classic Christmas movie for the thousandth time). The chocolate advent calendars we found have something new to try every day for the 12, 24, or 25 days leading up to Christmas morning.
The only problem? Because there are so many tasty indulgences hidden inside all of these food advent calendars, you might have to play rock-paper-scissors with your relatives to score your top choice every day.
