If you want to leave a sweet surprise on a pillow or nightstand, we like the Michel Cluizel Noir de Cacao 72% chocolate bar. We’ve tested more than 75 bars, and this one has consistently ranked among our favorites. Made in France, this thin bar melts effortlessly on the tongue, delivering a rounded sensory experience. It’s well-balanced with a pleasant bitter finish and rounded fruit flavors. If your guests prefer something a little sweeter (a step up from grocery-store chocolate), we also like the Guittard Épique Bar. It’s more sweet than bitter, but that might be good for some people.
