Holiday Treats

Those who’d rather avoid the kitchen can purchase holiday sweets from The Chocolate Girl, a kosher candy shop recently opened in Brooklyn’s Park Slope.

Owner Tziporah Avigayil Jaeger is making etrog jelly-filled chocolates for Sukkot. I’m “trying to draw on the holiday. This is something that captures [its] essence,” said Jaeger, an Orthodox Jew and veteran candy-maker who has been selling chocolates wholesale for the past two years. “Otherwise, there’s really nothing specific for Sukkot.”

The dark-chocolate (nondairy) confections, which are made on site, can be ordered on the store’s Web site or by phone, and they are delivered across the country via UPS. In the spirit of the holiday, Jaeger is building a sukkah behind the store so that local patrons can sample candies and pastries within its sanctuary. For more information, go to or call (718) 788-GIRL.
