Murray's Cheese

What's better than chocolate in a heart-shaped box? Chocolate in a wheel of cheese. That's right. Our friends at Murray's teamed up with the cheesemakers at Four Fat Fowl and the French chocolatier François Pralus to bring us this 8-ounce wheel of Triple Crème de Cocoa. It features a wafer of milk chocolate inside buttery, soft cheese, and well, it's pure perfection. "I've been eating goat cheese with my Oreo's for years because someone at Murray's told me to, so I was pumped to get my hands on a sample of this new cheese," says Executive Lifestyle Director, Lisa Freedman. "Turns out, cheese and chocolate are the ultimate duo. Give this to the cheese-lover who completes you. Oh, and be sure to add a jar of Murray's Spiced Cherry Preserves."
