Christmas is a time for indulging in all of our favourite things; family time, festive movies, and if you’re anything like us – chocolate. Only the best will do, and Lir’s individually handcrafted chocolates are exactly that.

The brand’s spirit of creativity and attention to detail is evident in every bite; with the master chocolatiers using only the finest ingredients from sustainability-conscious farmers. Whether it’s salted caramel or Marc De Champagne truffles you’re after – or if you need a gift for the Baileys and Guinness lovers in your life – Lir Chocolates’ luxury collections are a perfect choice.

Here are seven of our favourites, all of which are available to buy online or in selected Supervalu and Tesco stores nationwide…

Lir Discovery Collection

From €13 at Lir Chocolates

The Discovery Collection includes exciting new flavours such as Dark Chocolate Torte and Chewy Pecan Caramel, alongside classic much-loved favourites like Praline, Salted Caramel and Coffee.

Whether you’re treating yourself or someone special, these treats are available in boxes of 16 or 32, with each chocolate promising to surprise and delight you.

Lir Chocolates

The Baileys Giftbox

€12 from Lir Chocolates

A premium collection of 23 chocolates, this is a perfect gift for the Baileys and chocolate lover. This range includes a selection of favourites; including milk, dark and white truffles, brownies and caramels all with the signature Baileys flavour.

Guinness Milk & Dark Chocolates

€5 from Lir Chocolates

This selection features milk and dark chocolates with caramel and creamy ganache centres, all of which are flavoured with Guinness beer. It’s the perfect stocking filler for the Guinness fan in your life.

The Dessert Collection

€9 from Lir Chocolates

What better way to round off Christmas dinner than with a collection of festive-favourite desserts in the form of individual chocolates? This 145g offering contains 12 chocolates in four flavours; Raspberry Fool, Mango & Passion Fruit Mousse, Chocolate Brownie and Creme Brulee.

These are beautifully presented in a Lir Chocolates’ gift box, making the Dessert Collection a perfect present for your guests or party host.

Lir Chocolates

The Baileys Opera Box

€14 from Lir Chocolates

This is the brand’s signature Opera box; one of the most beautiful presentation boxes yet. It includes a range of 20 Baileys chocolates; including milk, dark and white truffles; as well as coffee, caramel and almond flavours.

Lir Marc De Champagne Truffles

€9.50 from Lir Chocolates

Lir’s chocolatiers have created the perfect chocolate truffle – a combination of a crisp chocolate shell and a silky smooth, ganache centre. The packaging is also bright and festive; making it a perfect Kris Kindle gift or stocking filler.

The Baileys Salted Carmel Truffles Tube

€10 from Lir Chocolates

Another stocking-friendly gift, this tube of Baileys-infused salted caramel truffles is deliciously indulgent. There is a crisp, milk chocolate shell with a salted caramel filling, and just a hint of the iconic Baileys flavour.

Speaking to Image.ie, the master chocolatiers said, “At Lir Chocolates, a love of chocolate is at the heart of everything we do. We hope you will discover your own personal favourites and enjoy tasting our chocolates as much as we enjoy creating them.

“Our range is available in selected Tesco and Supervalu stores and online at lirchocolates.com.
